cd Who Can I Be Now David Bowie
The follow up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed Five Years (1969 - 1973), this twelve CD box features all of the material officially released by Bowie during the 'American' phase of his career from 1974 to 1976.
 
---------
 
The box set includes DIAMOND DOGS, DAVID LIVE (in original and 2005 mixes), YOUNG AMERICANS and STATION TO STATION (in original and 2010 mixes), as well as THE GOUSTER, LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM 76 and a new compilation RE:CALL 2, which collects single versions and non-album b-sides.
 
Exclusive to the box set is THE GOUSTER. Previously unreleased as a complete album, it was recorded at Sigma Sound, Philadelphia in 1974 and produced by Tony Visconti. The album was mixed and mastered before David decamped to New York to work with John Lennon and Harry Maslin on what became the YOUNG AMERICANS album. THE GOUSTER contains three previously unreleased mixes of Right, Can You Hear Me and Somebody Up There Likes Me.
 
For the 2016 release, Tony Visconti has overseen the mastering from the original tapes and photos taken by Eric Stephen Jacobs have been put together for the sleeve based around 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 and stereo as part of the STATION TO STATION Deluxe box set in 2010) and 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, and 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 artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the STATION TO STATION sessions by David's friend and 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 and was replaced by the more familiar black and white image.
 
The box set's accompanying 128 page book features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Eric Stephen Jacobs, Tom Kelley, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O'Neill, Steve Schapiro, and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producers Tony Visconti and Harry Maslin.
 
Also includes mini-vinyl versions of the original albums and gold coloured CDs.
