The follow up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed DAVID BOWIE â€˜FIVE YEARS (1969 â€“ 1973)â€™ this
thirteen LP box features all of the material officially released by Bowie
during the so-called â€˜Americanâ€™ phase of his career from 1974 to 1976.
The box set, which is named after a track recorded in 1974 but not
officially released until the 1990â€™s, includes â€˜DIAMOND DOGSâ€™, â€˜DAVID LIVEâ€™ (in
original and 2005 mixes), â€˜YOUNG
AMERICANSâ€™ and â€˜STATION TO STATIONâ€™ (in
original and 2010 mixes) as well as â€˜THE
GOUSTERâ€™, â€˜LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM 76â€™
and a new compilation entitled â€˜RE:CALL
2â€™ which is a collection of single versions and non-album b-sides.
All of the formats include tracks that have never before appeared on LP
as well as new remasters.
Exclusive to the box set is â€˜THE
GOUSTER previously unreleased as a complete albumâ€™ it was recorded at Sigma Sound, Philadelphia in 1974 and produced
by Tony Visconti. The album was mixed and mastered before David decamped to New
York to work with John Lennon and Harry Maslin on what became the â€˜YOUNG AMERICANSâ€™ album. â€˜THE GOUSTERâ€™ contains three previously
unreleased mixes of â€˜Rightâ€™, â€˜Can You Hear Meâ€™ and â€˜Somebody Up There Likes
For the 2016 release, Tony Visconti has overseen the mastering from the
original tapes and photos taken by Eric Stephen Jacobs have been put together
for the sleeve based around one of Davidâ€™s original concepts for the album.
Also exclusive to the box set will be the remastered â€˜DAVID LIVE (original mix)â€™, the 2010
Harry Maslin mix of â€˜STATION TO STATIONâ€™
(previously only available on an audio only DVD in 5.1 and stereo as part of
the â€˜STATION TO STATIONâ€™ Deluxe box
set in 2010) and â€˜RE:CALL 2â€™.
â€˜RE:CALL 2â€™ features the
original single mix of â€˜Rebel Rebelâ€™, which has only featured on a 40th
anniversary picture disc in 2014 since its original release on single in 1974,
and a previously unreleased on CD Australian single edit of â€˜Diamond Dogsâ€™, the
only place in the world that this edit was issued. Also appearing on CD for the
first time is the single edit of the live version of â€˜Rock â€˜nâ€™ Roll With Meâ€™,
which was issued to radio stations in the U.S. to help promote the â€˜DAVID LIVEâ€™ album.
â€˜RE:CALL 2â€™ features newly
originated artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the â€˜STATION TO STATIONâ€™ recording sessions by Davidâ€™s friend and
backing vocalist Geoff MacCormack aka Warren Peace.
The alternative cover for the 2010 mix of â€˜STATION TO STATIONâ€™ by Harry Maslin, features the originally
intended colour sleeve for the album that never got further than a few colour
proofs and was replaced by the more familiar black and white image.
The box setâ€™s accompanying 84 page book will feature rarely seen and
previously unpublished photos by photographers including Eric Stephen Jacobs,
Tom Kelley, Geoff MacCormack, Terry Oâ€™Neill, Steve Schapiro, and many others as
well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from
producers Tony Visconti and Harry Maslin.
