comprehensive bowie box set including the never before released ‘The Gouster’, this is a must-have for any self-respecting Bowie aficionado.

The follow-up to the incredible ‘FIVE YEARS (1969 – 1973)’, this features all of the material officially released by Bowie during the so-called ‘American’ phase of his career. The collection includes ‘DIAMOND DOGS’, ‘DAVID LIVE’ (in original & 2005 mixes), ‘YOUNG AMERICANS’ & ‘STATION TO STATION’ (in original & 2010 mixes) as well as ‘THE GOUSTER’ – previously unreleased as a complete album – ‘LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM 76’ & a new compilation entitled ‘RE:CALL 2’, which is a collection of single versions & non-album b-sides.

Exclusive to the box set is ‘THE GOUSTER’, which was recorded at Sigma Sound, Philadelphia in 1974 & produced by Tony Visconti. The album was mixed & mastered before David decamped to New York to work with John Lennon & Harry Maslin on what became the ‘YOUNG AMERICANS’ album. ‘THE GOUSTER’ contains three previously unreleased mixes of ‘Right’, ‘Can You Hear Me’ & ‘Somebody Up There Likes Me’. For the 2016 release, Tony Visconti has overseen the mastering from the original tapes & photos taken by Eric Stephen Jacobs have been put together for the sleeve based on one of David’s original concepts for the album. Also exclusive to the box set will be the remastered ‘DAVID LIVE (original mix)’, the 2010 Harry Maslin mix of ‘STATION TO STATION’ (previously only available on an audio only DVD in 5.1 & stereo as part of the ‘STATION TO STATION’ Deluxe box set in 2010) & ‘RE:CALL 2’. ‘RE:CALL 2’ features the original single mix of ‘Rebel Rebel’, which has only featured on a 40th anniversary picture disc in 2014 since its original release on single in 1974, & a previously unreleased on CD Australian single edit of ‘Diamond Dogs’, 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 ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll With Me’, which was issued to radio stations in the U.S. to help promote the ‘DAVID LIVE’ album. ‘RE:CALL 2’ features newly originated artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the ‘STATION TO STATION’ recording sessions by David’s friend & backing vocalist Geoff MacCormack aka Warren Peace. The alternative cover for the 2010 mix of ‘STATION TO STATION’ by Harry Maslin, features the originally intended colour sleeve for the album that never got further than a few colour proofs & was replaced by the more familiar black & white image. The box set’s accompanying book will feature rarely seen & previously unpublished photos by photographers including Eric Stephen Jacobs, Tom Kelley, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O’Neill, Steve Schapiro, & many others as well as historical press reviews & technical notes about the albums from producers Tony Visconti & Harry Maslin.***
