I'd love to see expanded editions of the Tin Machine albums or even a box set. However, i just don't think demand is there. The whole "brand" of the band is still seen as a joke by the general public. I have tried in vain to convince friends to listen to the albums with an open mind. It just seems that Tin Machine is still seen as Bowie's mid life crisis/ artistic folly

You know...

"Oy Vey Baby" the cd, is quite bad... however the "Oy Vey Baby" VHS tape - is excellent.

It boggles the mind why they chose to basically make a compilation of live songs, instead of just putting out one cohesive show. Plus, the cd doesn't include a single cover song... and that was part of the appeal of their live shows!

I recall an interview with DB where he stated that TM sold LOTS of records, even if they didn't chart high as 'best sellers' -- but rather because they sold consistently and over a long period of time.

Indeed, the CD is bad, and the video is great, but on the CD, as as a treat, it does start with an outtake from Pin Ups that Bowie revived for Tin Machine shows, and in the credits he cheekily used the nom de plume "Ferry".

------------------
The next EMI Expanded Editions:
* What are your hopes for these releases?
* Let's have The Man Who Sold The World with the complete Paris Cinema Studios, Feb 5, 1970 radio concert, and the complete April 1970 radio session. Hunky Dory - add the complete Paris Cinema Studios concert, June 1971 in stereo, from the BBC Stereo Transcription LP if the master is lost!
* Any future live 1974 release MUST include a recording of Drive In Saturday from the early part of the tour, it's classic!
The next DVD release?
* Cracked Actor / Omnibus documentary must be released on DVD!
