David Bowie - Vampires Of Human Flesh (Scary Monsters Outtakes)



Yet another Bowie, for my good friends here. This particular gem is one the rarest of beasts - a great sounding outtakes session of late 70's David Bowie. If you wanted I could innundate you with some crap-sounding sessions but my standards prevent me from doing so. And of course, the search is always ongoing for great sounding sessions from the man. So, I continue to dig deep into the Bowie archives and plan on seeding a few throughout our time here together. Hope you all enjoy and keep your eyes and ears open for much more. At the bottom of this post is an excellent insert which explains in detail the sessions and songs. Did you know that 'Scary Monsters' was a song he had written with the thought of offering it to Johnny Cash? How interesting would that have been?



1 Scream Like a Baby 3:21
2 Because You're Young 4:54
3 Kingdom Come 4:00
4 Up the Hill Backwards 3:23
5 It's no Game 3:55
6 Is There Life After Marriage 4:38
7 Up the Hill Backwards 3:18
8 Teenage Wildlife 7:10
9 Kingdom Come 3:58
10 Scary Monsters 5:11

Daddyrich-

You are an extremely generous individual, thanks for all the sharing!

Speaking of Bowie, do you have any of the Serious Moonlight tour Rehearsals wwith Stevie Ray Vaughn on guitar? I've heard of these but never been able to get them.

Also would like info on contacting you RE contributions...

I do indeed have those rehearsals and will be putting them on here soon. Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks for this -- I have a few tracks from it, and have been looking for the complete version for quite a while. I have a pretty good Bowie collection and really appreciate filling holes!!

Hello Daddyrich,
So glad you are back. The "Scary Monster" tracks are incredibly cool. I have three of the tracks from the "Serious Moonlight"/Stevie Ray rehearsals and they are amazing. I look forward to hearing more.

Thanks for everything

Thanks for giving us the opportunity these fascinating demos from what is certainly one of Bowie's greatest albums, (and probably his last great one).

I may have to beg for the Stevie rehearsals, or offer up something in trade at least!

But a question per the site title: chimps are indeed killers of their own kind. Cannibalistic too. What says the Orange One to that?
