180g Vinyl 13LP Box Set!

Parlophone Records are proud to release DAVID BOWIE ‘Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976)’ the second in a series of box sets spanning his career from 1969.

The follow up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed David Bowie ‘Five Years (1969 – 1973)’ box set, ‘Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976)’ contains the previously unreleased album from 1974 called ‘The Gouster’.

The thirteen-piece vinyl set features all of the material officially released by Bowie during the so-called ‘American’ phase of his career from 1974 to 1976.

The box set, which is named after a track recorded in 1974 but not officially released until the 1990’s, 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 entitled ‘RE:CALL 2’ which is a collection of single versions and non-album b-sides.

The box set includes tracks that have never before appeared on CD/vinyl/digital as well as new remasters.

Exclusive to the compilation 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 sets are 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.

RE:CALL 2 features newly originated artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the ‘STATION TO STATION’ recording 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 color sleeve for the album that never got further than a few color proofs and was replaced by the more familiar black and white image.

The vinyl box set is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl.

The 180g Vinyl 13LP Box Set features an 84-page accompanying book which 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.

David Live was culled from performances on the 8th, 9th, 10th11th and 12th of July, 1974 at the Tower Theater, Philadelphia.
