Club Bowie is a collection of rare and unreleased remixes of David Bowie songs, released by Virgin/EMI to coincide with A Reality Tour.

As the title and subtitle (“Rare And Unreleased 12″ Mixes”) implies, the focus is on club and dance mixes. The release was aimed at both Bowie completists, dance music fans and aspiring DJs, although whether the remixes improve on the originals remains moot.

The CD contains eight mixes and lasts just over 66 minutes. The longest is the Trifactor Vs Deeper Substance remix of ‘Let’s Dance’, which clocks in at 11:02, while the shortest is David Guetta’s 6:37 reimagining of “Heroes”, titled ‘Just For One Day’.

There CD also included enhanced video content, of a 3:52 edit of the Club Bolly mix of ‘Let’s Dance’, credited to Bowie, Anita Kaur, and Navin Kumar Singh. An extended mix of the audio, lasting 7:56, is also included.
