To celebrate the date 44 years ago when David Bowie first performed at Glastonbury, the new DAVID BOWIE FIVE YEARS 1969 – 1973 box set has been announced.
Set to arrive on Friday September 25, the 10 album / 12 CD box, 10 album / 13-piece vinyl set and digital download will feature all of the material officially released by Bowie during the nascent stage of the Thin White Duke's career from 1969 to 1973 (i.e before he was technically the Thin White Duke). All of the formats include tracks that have never before appeared on CD/digitally as well as new remasters.
Exclusive to the box sets will be Re:Call 1, a new 2-disc compilation of non-album singles, single versions & b-sides. It features a previously unreleased single edit of 'All The Madmen', which was originally set for a US release but was never actually released. Also included is the original version of 'Holy Holy', which was only ever released on the original 1971 Mercury single and hasn’t been available on any release since.
It will be the first in a series of David Bowie box sets.
