Bowie Titles From A New Career In A New Town Box To Be Reissued As CD and LP

In September of 2017, Rhino and Parlophone released an 11CD Box featuring newly remastered CD editions of classic David Bowie albums. Those included Low, Lodger, Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Stage, and Heroes, along with extra bonus materials on additional CDs. These are recorded works from 1977 through 1982.

For this boxed set, all titles were remastered.

On February 23, Rhino and Parlophone will break into that box to release singular CD and LP copies of those previously mentioned titles all featuring the 2017 remastering.

Stage will be released as 2CD and 2LP sets given their length.

 

Next David Bowie Box: A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982)

With two massive box sets in the catalog, the music of David Bowie could never be so important. An artist the caliber of David Bowie, (something I never anticipated as I began listening to Bowie during the new release of Hunky Dory, and eventually backtracking to the previous three), commands that he be accessible in all ways. His labels have assuredly assembled many a project to insure that happened in every way. With Five Years (1969-1973) handling business for Space Oddity (1969) through Pin Ups (1973, and including Live Santa Monica ’72, and the OMPS for Ziggy Stardust, plus Who Can I Be Now? 1974-1976 doing the upkeep for Diamond Dogs (1974) through Station To Station (1976). Who Can I Be Now? 1974-1976 also provided for David Live, and Live Nassau Coliseum ’76, and included bonuses like The Gouster (unreleased album), and a few other nice things. Both sets provided a bonus disc of extras and a large book of details and photos.

It stands to reason that RCA would eventually get around to closing off their David Bowie involvement with a finishing Box that would encapsulate the remainder of his work. And that’s what we have coming:

On September 29, RCA will release A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982), which provides everything from Low (1977) through Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) (1980), and including Stage (1978) along with a 2017 remastered version of Stage. There are also the Heroes EP, and a new Visconti remix of Lodger inside (along with the original mix). A new edition of ReCall (Re:Call 3) will provide bonus music from those album periods (singles, B-sides, etc.) In addition to the music, and like the previous Boxes, there will be a hardbound book with photos, information, memorabilia, and notes in 128 pages. And like the previous boxes, the CDs are contained in the standard cardboard mini-LP jackets.  The CDs are gold in color.

A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982) will be made available as an 11CD box and a 13LP box.

The included Heroes EP is newly compiled with French and German versions of “Heroes”, both album and single versions.

Re:Call 3 Track List:

01. Heroes (Single Version)
02. Beauty and the Beast (Extended Version)
03. Breaking Glass (Australian Single Version)
04. Yassassin (Turkish for: Long Live) [Single Version]
05. D.J. (Single Version)
06. Alabama Song
07. Space Oddity (1979 Version)
08. Ashes to Ashes (Single Version)
09. Fashion (Single Version)
10. Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) [Single Version]
11. Crystal Japan
12. Under Pressure (Single Version)
13. Baal’s Hymn (Der Choral Vom Großen Baal)
14. Remembering Marie A. (Erinnerung An Die Marie A.)
15. Ballad of the Adventurers (Die Ballad Von Den Abenteurern)
16. The Drowned Girl (Vom Ertrunkenen Mädchen)
17. The Dirty Song
18. Cat People (Putting Out Fire)
19. Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy

It would be brilliant for EMI and Columbia to continue this definitive boxing of eras!

 

Next David Bowie Picture Disc Single, “Be My Wife”, To Be Issued In June

The recorded music of David Bowie has far surpassed his expectations of his import to the world. Since his passing, the respect laid out for Bowie has been a rich one for fans, who have benefited by reissues of his albums and a steady stream of special 7″ picture disc singles.

The latest to be offered is “Be My Wife“, a song from his 1977 classic album, Low. This single is backed with “Art Decade” (Live Perth – 1978) (not “Speed of Life”, which backs the original single release). “Be My Wife” is newly remastered for this pressing.

The single is a picture disc and is tagged for release on June 16 via Rhino Records and Parlophone.

 

David Bowie CD and LP Re-releases, 40th Anniversary 7″ Picture Disc of Sound and Vision

If there is one thing that’s for sure, it’s that David Bowie is never far from our consciousness. As a kid, I first latched on to David Bowie after reading about Hunky Dory in Rolling Stone magazine (as an ad). Today, it’s quite hard to believe just how ingrained he has become. and there’s never enough David Bowie.

On February 10, Rhino And Parlophone will team to release a 2017 remastered 40th Anniversary Limited Edition 7″ picture disc vinyl single (rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?) of “Sound and Vision” b/w a 2013 remix of the same song. The remix was originally completed for a Sony Experia ad. It features the original vocals from the original track but adds in backing vocals by Mary Hopkin. It’s finished with a new piano part. This release marks its first time issued.

Along with that essential single 7″, Rhino and Parlophone will also be reissuing several David Bowie titles on both CD and vinyl LP. Those will include:

  • Young Americans (2016 Remaster) – CD and LP
  • Station To Station (2016 Remaster) – CD and LP
  • Live Nassau Coliseum ’76 – 2CD and 2LP
  • Diamond Dogs (2016 Remaster) – CD and LP
  • David Live (2005 Mix, Remastered) – 2CD and 3LP

Sounds like great fun especially for those needing (or wanting) the new vinyl LP. Vinyl, by the way, is expected to reach a billion dollars in sales in 2017! Who woulda thought that a few years back?

Bowie!

 

New David Bowie Single Collection, Bowie Legacy

david-bowie-bowie-legacyThere has been a wealth of David Bowie sets since his unfortunate passing early this year. As we wind this year down, Legacy Recordings will finish with a flourish with the release of Bowie Legacy.

Bowie Legacy is a strong – and complete – collection of Bowie singles that covers his entire career. That begins with the “Space Oddity” release in 1969 and finishes with two from his last issue, Blackstar, earlier this year. The collection set for the single edition feature 21 singles and include a previously unreleased “Life On Mar?” version as a bonus. Aside from the new remix of “Life On Mars?” for 2016, most of the songs are 2014 remasters. Some are, in fact, earlier remasters.

Of course, the booklet is expected to be  sweet affair as well

Bowie Legacy will be released on CD (with 21 songs), 2CD Deluxe (with 40 songs), and DD. A 2LP vinyl set will be released later in 2017, on January 6.

I HAVE to say, I LOVE the cover. Whoever designed it, my hat is off to you for a job well done!

New Bowie Box, Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) Expected In September

If you’re surprised that more music is coming from David Bowie, you shouldn’t be. No only has it been hinted that Bowie left behind a wealth of new music – music that we haven’t heard yet – but we’re getting word that old legends are making the light of day. For Bowie, that’s The Gouster. And while it being released as a single CD has not been on the table, its inclusion in a Boxed set has been. Good news for the rest of us.

On September 23, Parlophone Records will release a 12CD (or 13LP) Boxed set called Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976). Within this follow-up to Five Years (1969-1973) will be some of Bowie’s important career high points. Those will include remastered versions of Diamond Dogs, the transitional Young Americans, Station To Station, David Live, and Live Nassau Coliseum ’76. In addition to those classics, the box will include a collection of non-album b-sides and singles. Of course, the attractive offering is the unreleased The Gouster album from 1974.

Who Can I Be Now - David Bowie

Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) will include a massive 128-page hard-cover book (84-page hard-bound for the LP Box) with incredible content (photos, liner notes, extensive credits, etc.). The Digital Download (DD) editions will be offered in two forms: 192kHz/24-bit, and 96kHz/24-bit. A COMPLETE rundown (lifted from the David Bowie website – No! I was not going to retype ALL of that information!) is cut ‘n pasted below:

New Ian Hunter Album, Fingers Crossed

Ian Hunter Fingers CrossedOne of our more resilient Rock n Rollers is easily Ian Hunter. When you mention Ian Hunter (in any breath), you can come away with many thoughts and realities. Of course, many of us recognize his part in the historic version of Mott The Hoople. It was with that band that the world came to find them with their big hit, “All The Young Dudes”. David Bowie was a large part of their bigger stage with his involvement although not because their talent level needed a boost. It was because of their huge talent pool that Bowie became involved with them in the first place. (I love that Bowie used his fame to help bands get much deserved attention!)

After Mott The Hoople’s last album with Hunter, Ian went on to start a successful solo career. During that early period, he cranked out plenty of singles and enjoyed charting with eight of his more than fifteen album releases. In fact, eight singles charted including one from 2007, “When The World Was Round”. His skills as a singer-songwriter are as tight and effective as they were back in his Mott days as well as his fruitful solo years.

On September 16, Ian Hunter will release his next solo album, Fingers Crossed. His is his first since When I’m President from 2002 (When I’m President charted in the Top 200 in the US, and at 97 in the UK. With all of the music being released these days, that’s a remarkable feat! But we’re talking about Ian Hunter here!

The new album has already released a single, which can be heard below. The song is a tribute to David Bowie called “Dandy”. The new album conains ten new original tracks. There is  bonus non-album song that can be acquired by pre-ordering the new album. Fingers Crossed is being released on CD, DD, and 180g-weight vinyl LP.

 

MusicTAP on Sirius Radio and Facebook

I recently (June 5) did a short MusicTAP-related segment on the Chris Carter’s British Invasion show heard weekly on Sirius Satellite Radio (Saturdays beginning at 9a PST/12p EST, and all of the time zone adjustments throughout the reach of Sirius, and a broadcast repeat on Sundays from 1p PST/4p EST). The Chris Carter’s British Invasion show is found on Sirius Radio’s broadcast channel of Little Steven’s Underground Garage found on Channel 21.

The first show was a blast. My segment was a four-minute piece on upcoming British-related releases coming out. It is a feature that will show up once a month.

Additionally, I wanted those of you either new to the site, or those that were unaware, that I have a Facebook magazine page where I often post additional things that do not make it onto this site. It can be located and “Liked” here.

As an example, I posted a well-received news piece that Tony Visconti – David’s Bowie’s producer – announced there were more David Bowie material in the vaults that WILL be released in the near future. Stuff like that along with the occasional music video of something that I’d think you might like.

I hope to see some of you there.

 

Three ’90s Bowie Sets To Be Re-Released

Rhino and Parlophone will be dipping into the catalog of David Bowie to re-release three ’90s titles. I don’t see anything with special additions. I believe these will be a reintroduction of several titles into the marketplace.

The three titles involved are Hours, Earthling, and 1. Outside. 1. Outside is David Bowie’s 19th studio effort and his first back with Brian Eno since the Berlin Trilogy (Low, Heroes, Lodger) and contains the hits, “The Hearts Filthy Lesson”, “Hllo Spaceboy”, “Strangers When We Meet”, and “I’m Deranged”. 1. Outside was released in 1995, while Earthling, and Hours were released in 1997, and 1999 respectively.

All three titles are on the calendar for July 8.

Bowie 1. Outside  Bowie Hours  Bowie Earthling

A Tsunami Of Vinyl (Pink Floyd, Prince, Madonna, John Denver, Radiohead, ELO, David Bowie, And More)

There’s a literal vinyl flood coming. Some titles are near essentials. Of the top arriving LPs on the calendar, my first choice are the staggered releases of the Pink Floyd catalog. For others, it might be the Prince titles (of which are also being visited by another old media friend, cassette). But tbose aren’t the only titles being re-manufactured for fans.

The Pink Floyd titles will be reissued in remastered state. They will be pressed upon 180g-weight vinyl. Otherwise, according to the band’s PR, they will appear exactly as they were originally issued. The first sets arrive on June 3, and will include Pink Floyd’s first four albums (The Piper At the Gates Of Dawn – 1967, A Saucerful Of Secrets – 1968, More – 1969, Ummagumma (2LP) – 1969).

Pink Floyd - Ummagumma

Throughout the year, the others will find release dates (that we’ll keep you up on). The remaining titles include Atom Heart Mother (1970), Meddle (1971), Obscured By Clouds (1972), The Dark Side Of The Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979), The Final Cut (1983), A Momentary Lapse Of Reason (1987), and The Division Bell (1994).

All Pink Floyd albums will be released by Pink Floyd Records via the distribution of Sony in the US, and Warner Bros in the UK. Sony will handle the remaining markets.

The Prince sets will include many of his catalog titles. The first was For You (1978), which was released on April 26, and Prince (1979) released on May 3. Coming up will be Around the World In A Day (1985), planned for July 5, Parade (Under A Cherry Moon) (1986) on July 19, Sign ‘O The Times (1987) on August 23, The Black Album (1994) planned for September 20, Batman (1989), and Lovesexy (1988), are scheduled for October 18, Diamonds and Pearls (1991), and Music From Graffiti Bridge (1990) will street on November 22, with Come (1994), and Love Symbol (1992), both set for December 13.

In addition, cassette versions of albums will be hitting the marketplace as well. Of those, you can plan on Controversy (1981), Dirty Mind (1980),  Prince (1979), and Purple Rain (1984), all on June 24.

Prince Controversy   Prince Dirty Mind

As if those weren’t enough vinyl LPs for you, there are more on the way of other artists. Those include two Madonna re-releases from Rhino Records of Madonna (1983), and Like A Virgin (1984). Both are pressed on 180g-weight vinyl. These are planned for June 21.
