Third In a Series of Chronological David Bowie Box Sets Spans 1977-1982: 180g 13LP Collection Features 84-Page Book and Four Exclusive Titles, Including Heroes E.P. and Re:Call3
David Bowie's A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982) serves as the follow-up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed David Bowie Five (1969-1973) and David Bowie Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) box sets and contains a brand new remix of the 1979 album Lodger by long time Bowie producer/collaborator Tony Visconti. The 180g audiophile-quality 13-piece vinyl set features material officially released by Bowie between 1977 and 1982 including the so-called ‘Berlin Trilogy' of albums on which he collaborated with Visconti and Brian Eno, and is completed by Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).
The box set, named after the final track on side one of Low, includes Low, Heroes, Stage (Original and 2017 Versions), Lodger, Lodger (Tony Visconti 2017 Mix), Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) and Re:Call 3. Finally we have the Heroes EP, which rounds up the German and French album and single versions of the track in one place for the first time, a compilation exclusive to the set celebrating the 40th anniversary of the song. In the vinyl version of the box the original Stage will be pressed on yellow vinyl, replicating the limited edition U.K. release of the time. The 2017 version of Stage also features two previously unreleased tracks.
Exclusive to the box is Lodger (Tony Visconti 2017 Mix). The remix was started with David's blessing before his passing in January 2016. Visconti has revisited the original multi-tracks at Human Studios and remixed the album with the benefit of modern technology to better highlight the album's nuances. Always a personal favorite of David's, this version of the album will also feature newly 'remixed' artwork featuring unseen images from the original cover photographic session from the archive of the Estate of photographer Duffy, working closely with his son Chris. Also exclusive to each box is Re:Call 3, a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles and b-sides, and songs featured on soundtracks. The cover features a photo by Christian Simonpietri taken at Hansa Studios in Berlin during the Heroes sessions in 1977.
The accompanying 84 page book features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Anton Corbijn, Helmut Newton, Andrew Kent, Steve Schapiro, Duffy and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producer Tony Visconti.
