Trident Music International /Golden Years (GY 014) June 1995. Limited Edition (20,000 copies - 10,000 UK & 10,000 world-wide). This album entered the UK charts on 25 June 1995 and reached its peak position of #111.  A limited edition 10" vinyl (GYLP014) of 1,300 copies for export only were also released.

Note: This CD was the first to include a "hidden" bonus track. Nowhere on the CD sleeve or liner notes is there mention of this bonus track. The track itself is 53 seconds of the original American RCA radio advertisement for PINUPS (1973).

The advertisement is located just before Track 1 and can be accessed by playing Track 1 and then using the CD Rewind function to move before Track 1 (i.e. rewind to minus 53 seconds).

Here is the advert in its full glory (the breaks being snippets of PINUPS (1973) songs):

"...Bowie's new album is out... He calls it PINUPS... PINUPS means favourites and these are Bowie's favourite songs...It's the kind of music your parents will never let you play loud enough...Bowie is a MainMan artiste available on RCA records and tapes world-wide..."
