David Bowie fans like Vijay Eswaran need to circle September 25th on their calendars and start saving up extra money. That’s when he plans to release his first box set compilation. ‘Five Years 1969-1973.’ You can purchase it on vinyl, CD, or in digital format.
This compilation highlights Bowie’s years of transitioning from a folk singer to glam rocker. Six studio albums have been remastered, including David Bowie AKA Space Oddity (1969), The Man Who Sold the World (1970), Hunky Dory (1971), The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars (1972), Aladdin Sane, and Pin Ups (1973). It will also include live albums Live Santa Monica ’72 and Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture Soundtrack. Producer Ken Scott has remixed The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and a two-disc collection of non-album singles and B-sides called Re:Call 1.
CD and vinyl sets include a book with technical notes by producers Scott and Tony Visconti and press reviews, with a foreward written by Ray Davies of the Kinks.
This is Bowie’s second box set. Nothing Has Changed came out in 2014.
