liveandwell.com, a limited edition double CD album by David Bowie, was released on 13 September 2000.
Bowie had hoped for the album to have a full commercial release, but his label Virgin declined to issue it.
Unfortunately Virgin refused to put it out after it was submitted in late winter 1998. Aside from the obvious, the bad news was that in the amount of time spent by David, Mark Plati and myself compiling and editing, we could have written and recorded the follow-up Earthling album that I’d hoped we’d do.

The various live tracks were initially made available as digital downloads to BowieNet members, and in September 2000 the two-CD set was given away to subscribers.
