The latest instalment in the 40th Anniversary singles’ campaign - Originally released in October 1973, 'Sorrow' was Bowie’s inimitable take on The Mersey Beats’ version of the song (originally released by The McCoys).
The single reached number 3 in UK, staying in the charts for 15 week & also appeared on Bowie’s 1973 covers album, 'Pin Ups'. Bowie’s version is an exceptional interpretation of a great song, so successful it has superseded the original & become THE definitive version. this double A-side single is backed with a rare live version of 'Sorrow' recorded at the Pacific National Coliseum, Vancouver, from David’s hugely successful 'Serious Moonlight' Tour on 12th September 1983.
