    David Bowie Live LP ‘I’m Only Dancing (The Soul Tour 74)’ Set for Record Store Day

    A previously unissued David Bowie live album highlighting the singer’s mid-Seventies workis set for Record Store Day.

    I’m Only Dancing (The Soul Tour 74), featuring segments of a pair of concerts from that trek, bridges the gap between 1974’s Diamond Dogs and 1975’s Young Americans. Bowie’s site announced the release Thursday.

    Previous Bowie live albums from the 1974 tour — 1974’s David Live and the 2017 reissue Cracked Actor (Live Los Angeles ’74) — were recorded prior to the I’m Only Dancing concerts, which featured a more soul music focus as well as the Mick Garson Band backing Bowie.

    The bulk of I’m Only Dancing is taken from an October 20th, 1974 gig at Detroit’s Michigan Palace, with three tracks from a Nashville concert on November 30th, 1974. The live album will available as both 2 CDs and 2 LPs on Record Store Day, April 18th. The LP’s artwork mirrors the original design for the programs from the two gigs.

    In addition to I’m Only Dancing (The Soul Tour 74), Record Store Day will also include a reissue of the ChangesNowBowie compilation.

    I’m Only Dancing (The Soul Tour 74) Track List

    1. Introduction – Memory of a Free Festival
    2. Rebel Rebel
    3. John, I’m Only Dancing (Again)
    4. Sorrow
    5. Changes
    6. 1984

    1. Moonage Daydream
    2. Rock ’n’ Roll With Me
    3. Love Me Do / The Jean Genie
    4. Young Americans

    1. Can You Hear Me
    2. It’s Gonna Be Me
    3. Somebody Up There Likes Me
    4. Suffragette City

    1. Rock ’n’ Roll Suicide
    2. Panic in Detroit
    3. Knock on Wood *
    4. Foot Stomping / I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate / Foot Stomping *

    Over the last few weeks, the upcoming digital EP of David Bowie rarities Is It Any Wonder? has been unveiled one song at a time. Today brings the fourth piece of the six-track effort, as a never-before-heard recording dubbed “Baby Universal ’97” has come online.

    ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’ is the second instalment of DAVID BOWIE’s IS IT ANY WONDER? EP of six unreleased and rare tracks being released once a week.

    ‘I CAN’T READ’ originally appeared on Tin Machine’s eponymous debut album in 1989, and was a staple in the band’s live set. In the autumn of 1996, during the mixing stages for Earthling, David re-recorded the track – which, at one stage, appeared on a mastered version of the album.

    While the song’s second incarnation, ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’, was David’s preferred solo version, it was ultimately cut from Earthling and replaced at the last minute with ‘The Last Thing You Should Do’.

    This video for ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97 was shot by Tim Pope shot at rehearsals in Hartford, Connecticut in January 1997.

    ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’ written by David Bowie & Reeves Gabrels is produced by David Bowie, co-produced by Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati, and mixed by Mark Plati. The track was recorded and mixed at Right Track Recording in New York and features Gail Ann Dorsey on bass and vocals, Mike Garson on piano, and Gabrels on guitar and vocals.

    DAVID BOWIE ‘ALABAMA SONG’ GETTING 40TH ANNIVERSARY PICTURE DISC



    Rhino Records will releases a 40th anniversary 7″ Picture Disc edition of David Bowie’s “Alabama Song” on February 14th. Originally released in the U.K. on February 15, 1980, “Alabama Song” was initially written as a poem by Bertolt Brecht in 1925 and was put to music by Kurt Weill for the 1927 play Little Mahogany. David Bowie was a long-standing Brecht fan and included the song in the set-list for his 1978 Isolar II tour.

    The studio version of “Alabama Song” on the A-side of this release was recorded on July 2, 1978, the day after the final show of the European leg of the tour at Tony Visconti’s Good Earth Studios in Soho, London.

    The AA-Side features two previously unreleased tracks: a rendition of Heroes track “Joe The Lion” recorded at the soundcheck of the tour’s final Earl’s Court show on July 1, 1978. Though rehearsed for the Isolar II Tour “Joe The Lion” would not make its live debut until the Serious Moonlight Tour of 1983.

    The second track on the AA-side is a live version of “Alabama Song” also recorded July 1st 1978 — a different performance than the one featured on the live album Welcome To The Blackout.


    A-Side (45 RPM)
    1. Alabama Song (Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht)
    Produced by David Bowie and Tony Visconti
    Recorded at Good Earth Studios, London on July 2, 1978

    AA-Side (33 1/3 RPM)
    1. Joe The Lion (Live at Earls Court ’78 Soundcheck) [Previously Unreleased] (David Bowie)
    Recorded live by Tony Visconti with the Manor Mobile at Earls Court, London July 1, 1978.
    Recording engineered by Jeremy Allom and Ken Capper Mixed by John Pestage at Air Studios, London, July, 2019
    2. Alabama Song (Live Earls Court ’78) [Previously Unreleased] (Kurt Weill / Bertolt Brecht)
    Produced by David Bowie Recorded live by Tony Visconti with the Manor Mobile at Earls Court, London, July 1, 1978
    Recording engineered by Jeremy Allom and Ken Capper Mixed by David Bowie and David Richards at Mountain Studios, Montreux, January 17-22, 1979.

    DAVID BOWIE CONVERSATION PIECE - 5 CD AND DIGITAL BOX SET RELEASED ON 15TH NOVEMBER, 2019

    INCLUDES 12 EXCLUSIVE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS AND BRAND NEW MIX OF SPACE ODDITY ALBUM BY TONY VISCONTI

    SPACE ODDITY (2019 MIX) ALBUM ALSO AVAILABLE SEPARATELY ON CD, STANDARD DIGITAL, 96/24 DIGITAL AND RANDOMISED BLACK, EXTREMELY LIMITED NUMBERED SILVER AND GOLD VINYL SINGLE RUN PRESSINGS.

    'CONVERSATION PIECE' (2019 MIX) AVAILABLE NOW AS A STREAMING ONLY SINGLE.

    4th September 2019 London

    Parlophone Records is proud to announce DAVID BOWIE CONVERSATION PIECE, a five CD box set and digital equivalent tracking David’s early development throughout 1968 and 1969, via his home demos, BBC radio sessions, studio recordings with guitarist John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson and the experimental music and mime group, Feathers. The collection also celebrates the 50th anniversaries of the release of the ‘Space Oddity’ single and David’s second album, David Bowie (aka Space Oddity).

    DAVID BOWIE CONVERSATION PIECE contains twelve previously unreleased tracks/demos from the period as well as a brand new mix of the Space Oddity (aka David Bowie) album by long-time Bowie producer/collaborator Tony Visconti.

    The new mix of the album now features the title track of the boxset ‘Conversation Piece’ restored to the tracklisting in its initially intended position, before it was originally dropped due to time constraints of vinyl.

    Of the 2019 Space Oddity album mix Visconti says “It was so much fun to find hidden gems of musicianship with more time to mix the second time around, a guitar twiddle here, a trombone blast there, Marc Bolan’s voice in a group choir and more detail in general that we overlooked all those years ago when the label gave us a week at the most to mix this album. And in the details you will find 22 year old David Bowie, who would soon take the world by storm."

    The 120 page hardback book accompanying the box features exclusive memorabilia from the personal collection of David’s former manager, the late Ken Pitt, as well as from the David Bowie Archive®, and includes photos by Ray Stevenson, Vernon Dewhurst, David Bebbington, Ken Pitt, Alec Byrne, Tony Visconti and Jojanneke Claasen.

    The sleeve notes have been written for the release by Bowie experts Mark Adams, Tris Penna and Kevin Cann along with contributions from David’s lifelong friend George Underwood, Tony Visconti, Vernon Dewhurst, Dana Gillespie and John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson.

    The 2019 mix of the Space Oddity album will also be released separately and individually on CD, standard digital, 96/24 digital and vinyl. The various vinyl configurations will be randomly distributed worldwide with a mixture of hand-numbered labels; numbers 1 to 1969 on silver vinyl numbers and 1970 to 2019 on gold vinyl, with the remainder being black vinyl.

    David Bowie’s iconic VH1 Storytellers live album is finally being released on vinyl

    There’s an overwhelming number of David Bowie records out there, but there’s one major record that has surprisingly never been pressed to vinyl: his live session for VH1‘s Storytellers series. Now, that’s finally changing. Bowie’s VH1 Storytellers will be released on vinyl on October 11th via Parlophone.

    This announcement arrives almost 20 years to the day after Bowie’s performance on the show, which was recorded on August 23rd of 1999. He played a career-spanning setlist which, at the time, could only go up to material from Hours, his 1999 album that had not yet been released at that point. It’s particularly notable for his performances of often overlooked songs like “Can’t Help Thinking About Me”, which he hadn’t played in 33 years, or “Word On A Wing”, which he hadn’t rolled out in 23 years.

    While technically VH1 Storytellers received a commercial release in 2009, it was only available as a CD and DVD package, the latter on which had four bonus songs not available on the CD. The new VH1 Storytellers vinyl will include all of the songs from his live session, including those bonus tracks. It’s a 2xLP release to accommodate the 12-song tracklist and coinciding commentary.

    According to Bill Flanagan, the executive producer of VH1 Storytellers, everyone in the studio was surprised when he agreed to play the show just three years after the TV series debuted. “We were used to dealing with legendary musicians. Still, landing David Bowie was more than a big booking. There’s no way to say this without being corny: it was an honor,” he said in a press release. “Bowie has a unique place in rock and roll. He is not only one of the most influential musicians of the era, but he does nothing unless he is fully committed.”



    Tracklist:
    Side 1:
    01. Life On Mars?
    02. Rebel Rebel (truncated)
    03. Thursday’s Child

    Side 2:
    01. Can’t Help Thinking About Me
    02. China Girl
    03. Seven

    Side 3:
    01. Drive-In Saturday
    02. Word On A Win
    03. Survive *

    Side 4:
    01. I Can’t Read *
    02. Always Crashing In The Same Car *
    03. If I’m Dreaming My Life *

    * Bonus recordings not included on original CD

    Parlophone is commemorating this year’s 50th anniversary of David Bowie’s classic “Space Oddity” with a series of box sets. They first announced the Spying Through a Keyhole collection, due out April 5th, back in January. Today, they’ve detailed another 7-inch vinyl box called Clareville Grove Demos.

    Due out May 17th, the three-piece set features six home demos Bowie recorded alongside John “Hutch” Hutchinson at the Clareville Grove flat the former lived in with his then girlfriend, Hermione Farthingale. (The three of them — Bowie, Hutch, and Farthingale — had performed together as Feathers.) The cover image was taken by Bowie’s manager at the time, Ken Pitt, in that very apartment.

    Of the six tracks, four have previously been unreleased. That includes “Love to the Dawn”, and early version of “Cygnet Committee”; “Ching-a-Ling”, a 1968 song Bowie originally recorded with his Turquoise trio featuring Fathingal and Tony Hill; “Let Me Sleep Beside You”; and “Life Is a Circus”, a cover of a Roger Bunn song recorded by Djinn.

    Each vinyl single is designed with a label emulating Bowie’s handwritten song titles. Find the box artwork and tracklist below. You can also find more Bowie vinyl over at ReverbLP.

    Tracklist:
    Single 1

    02. An Occasional Dream

    Single 3
    01. Let Me Sleep Beside You

    DAVID BOWIE - SPYING THROUGH A KEYHOLE (DEMOS AND UNRELEASED SONGS)

    PARLOPHONE SET TO RELEASE 7" VINYL SINGLES BOX SET OF PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED* DAVID BOWIE RECORDINGS, INCLUDING EARLIEST KNOWN VERSIONS OF SPACE ODDITY.


    With 2019 marking 50 years since David Bowie’s first hit, Space Oddity, we are excited to announce that Parlophone is set to release a 7" vinyl singles box set of nine previously unreleased recordings* from the era during which Space Oddity was first conceived.

    The title: Spying Through A Keyhole, is a lyric taken from the previously unknown song: Love All Around, and though most of the other titles are known, these versions have never been officially released until late last year (see footnote). Most of the recordings are solo vocal and acoustic home demo performances, unless otherwise stated.

    + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

    Mother Grey (demo)

    This mid-tempo tale of a fledgling son fleeing the nest features multi-tracked vocals, guitars and harmonica from David.

    In The Heat Of The Morning (demo)

    A well-known early Bowie song but presented here in demo form with final lyrics.

    Goodbye 3d (Threepenny) Joe (demo)

    A charming demo from 1968.

    Love All Around (demo)

    A delightful love song from whence the title of this collection came: “I see a pop tune spying through a keyhole from the other room”.

    London Bye, Ta-Ta (demo)

    An early demo version of the song with completely different lyrics in a couple of the verses compared to those of the later full band versions.

    Angel, Angel, Grubby Face (demo version 1)

    The first and only previously known demo of this song.

    Angel, Angel, Grubby Face (demo version 2)

    A later version of the same song with alternative lyrics.

    Space Oddity (demo excerpt)

    The lyric and arrangement variations lend weight to the theory that this is possibly the first ever recorded demo of one of Bowie’s most famous songs.

    Space Oddity (demo - alternative lyrics) (with Hutch)

    Originally conceived as a song for a duo to perform, this is the first known version to feature John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson again with lyric and arrangement variations.

    + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

    Due to the nature of some of the solo home demos where Bowie accompanied himself on acoustic guitar, the recording quality isn’t always of a usual studio fidelity. This is partly due to David’s enthusiastic strumming hitting the red on a couple of the tracks, along with the limitations of the original recording equipment and tape degradation. However, the historical importance of these songs and the fact that the selections are from an archive of tracks cleared for release by Bowie, overrides this shortcoming.

    Spying Through A Keyhole will be limited to a vinyl only release in the spring. However, the recordings may appear in the future on other formats. More details and actual release date to follow from Parlophone.
