Bowie Boxed

After months of hype and no little amount of anticipation, the new David Bowie box-set has finally arrived (click here). Released on 25 September, it covers all of Bowie’s output between 1969 and 1973, which was arguably his best period. Apparently we can expect a few more of these (Bowie boxes) in the months ahead.

I think this very comprehensive review over at Pitchfork (click here) offers a great overview of everything on offer, and it also works as something of an early career synopsis.

The Box includes:

A 10 album set featuring 6 original studio albums & 2 live albums on CD & 180g audiophile vinyl.
Plus, exclusive to the Box Sets:

The Rise and Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (2003 Ken Scott mix)
Re:Call 1: a new 2-disc compilation of non-album singles & b-sides including previously unreleased mono single edit of 'All The Madmen' and the highly sought after 'Holy Holy' original single unavailable since release in 1971.

The CD & Vinyl box sets come with a companion book featuring memorabilia, rare and previously unseen photos, hand written lyrics, original album press reviews and essays from the original album producers.
