Back in 2001, David Bowie recorded an album entitled Toy on which he revisited songs that had been hanging around since the 1960s. Unfortunately, his plans of recording and releasing this album in secret didn’t work out and the album remained “lost” for almost 20 years. (Yes, there were bootlegs and internet leaks, but no official release.)
Toy will soon see the light of day as part of a massive box set called Brilliant Adventure set for release on November 26. Ahead of that, Bowie’s people are streaming some of this lost material.
First, we have “Karma Man,” a track that dates back to 1967.
Then we have “Silly Boy Blue,” a re-recording of a song from Bowie’s self-titled 1967 album.
