Tony Visconti is remixing all David Bowie albums.
It’s not a remix like a ULTRA DANCE REMIX or any other HARD CORE THUNDERDOME RMX versions.
It’s work like what can be done on restored old films like METROPOLIS, but still less drastic than this example. It’s between a remaster and a more thorough restoration/recreation.
It’s still audibly noticeable substantial remix.
For the moment, we only had DAVID BOWIE (SPACE ODDITY) album and now we have METROBOLIST (THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD).
Recordings are not shared, of course.
The first one was added in the original release group.
The second one was added in its own release group, which should have been marked as Album+Remix.
Both options make sense.
For self cover albums (new performance, new recording) I have no doubt they should be separate.
But for this I queued a merge edit, because I feel slightly that they should be grouped.
But I’m not sure myself alone.
So what do you think?
