Deux « Nouveaux albums » de David Bowie pour le Record Store Day

Deux éditions limitées consacrées à David Bowie sortiront le 22 avril 2017 à l’occasion du 10ème Record Store Day.

Rien d’inédit pour les fans si ce n’est que le célèbre Bootleg « Portrait In Flesh » enregistré le 5 septembre 1974 à L’Universal Theatre de Los Angeles a été remastérisé en octobre et novembre 2016 par Monsieur Tony Visconti.

Je ne résiste pas au plaisir de vous passer un extrait de cet album.

Voici le communiqué officiel et les détails de ces 2 albums.

Two special Bowie releases for RSD anniversay

 

“Crack baby crack, show me you’re real”

 

TWO VERY SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION DAVID BOWIE RELEASES TO CELEBRATE RECORD STORE DAY’S 10th ANNIVERSAY ON 22nd APRIL 2017

 

~ CRACKED ACTOR (LIVE IN LOS ANGELES 1974) 3 x LP SET

 

~ BOWPROMO SINGLE-SIDED ALBUM BOXSET FEATURING ALTERNATE MIXES OF HUNKY DORY ERA TRACKS AND EXCLUSIVE PRINTS IN A PRESENTATION BOX

 

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day on April 22nd, Parlophone will be releasing two limited edition David Bowie albums, CRACKED ACTOR (Live In Los Angeles 1974) and a facsimile of the ultra-rare Hunky Dory era promo album BOWPROMO.

 

The former is the first official release of this Philly Dogs Tour show from September 1974, some of which was featured in Alan Yentob’s BBC documentary, Cracked Actor. The full concert is documented on this triple vinyl five-sided album. The sixth side features an etching of the Diamond Dogs era Bowie logo.

 

All of the multi-track tapes were finally reunited in one place in November of last year and mixed officially for the first time by long time Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti. The packaging features newly commissioned artwork with rare and unseen photographs from the 1974 Universal Amphitheatre show by Terry O’Neill and Jamie Andrews in a gatefold sleeve.

 

The album differs greatly from Bowie’s David Live album (also from 1974), as it features a new band line up including soul legend Luther Vandross on vocals. It also has a different set list including two tracks that had just been recorded for the album The Gouster, which was finally released for the first time last year as part of the critically acclaimed ‘Who Can I Be Now?’ box set.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

 

 

BOWPROMO was originally pressed in very small quantities in 1971 and it features alternate mixes of some of the songs that would eventually be released on the Hunky Dory album.

 

The A-side contained seven Bowie tracks, relatively new material at the time, five of which would appear on Bowie’s next album, Hunky Dory. On the B-side were five tracks recorded by another artist on the GEM roster, Dana Gillespie.

 

This RSD, one-sided release faithfully replicates the original promo featuring Bowie’s seven tracks plus five exclusive Bowie prints and new sleeve notes regarding the original promo, all housed in a special presentation box.
