Moonage daydream bowie at the beeb


Bowie at the Beeb is a compilation album by David Bowie, first released in 2000. Originally, it came in a three-CD set, the third, bonus CD being a live recording made on 27 June 2000 (2000-06-27) at the Portland BBC Radio Theatre. Later editions contain only the first two CDs.

Contents

The first pressing mistakenly included the second (disc 2, track 12) version of the song "Ziggy Stardust" twice on disc two, missing the first (disc 2, track 4) version. EMI declined to issue corrected replacement discs to customers, instead mailing out one-song CDRs of the first version.

This compilation also features a previously unreleased song, "Looking for a Friend" (disc 1, track 15), which John Peel said would be released as a single by Arnold Corns as a follow-up to the Arnold Corns versions of "Moonage Daydream" and "Hang On to Yourself", but it was never released, thus making this the only performance of "Looking for a Friend".
