David Bowie / A New Career In A New Town 1977-1982 / 13LP or 11CD box

Berlin Trilogy • REMIXED Lodger • Scary Monsters • Baal EP on Re:Call 3

Following 2015’s Five Years and last year’s Who Can I Be Now?, Parlophone will in September release A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN [1977-1982] an 11CD or 13LP David Bowie box set that includes remastered versions of arguably his most critically acclaimed albums, including the so-called ‘Berlin Trilogy’ of Low, Heroes and Lodger and 1980’s Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), his last studio album for RCA.

In addition to the remastered version, the box set will also feature 1979’s Lodger album (which delivered the hits D.J. and Boys Keep Swinging) newly REMIXED by Tony Visconti. This remix was started “with David’s blessing” before his passing in January last year. Visconti has revisited the original multi-tracks and remixed the album “to better highlight the album’s nuances”. 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. This remix of Lodger is exclusive to this box set (along with the Re:Call 3 compilation, more of which below).

The live album Stage (which was issued in 1978 between Heroes and Lodger) is included here in both the original version (exclusively on yellow vinyl in the LP box) and the 2005 reissue; the latter restored the original running order and added some bonus tracks. In fact, two more (previously unreleased) bonus tracks are added to the version in this new box set – The Jean Genie and Suffragette City – taking the track count to 22.

Other content of note is a “Heroes” EP – on a separate disc – with four foreign language variants, and the third ‘Re:Call’ compilation. Re:Call 3 mops up single versions, and amongst its 19 tracks includes a new-to-CD extended version of Beauty And The Beast (included on a US promo and Spanish 12-inch single), the original soundtrack version of Cat People (Putting Out Fire) (later re-made for Let’s Dance), the Queen collaboration Under Pressure, a rare Australian single version of Breaking Glass, the five tracks from 1982’s Baal EP (David’s very last release for RCA), Japanese single Crystal Japan, and the 1979 re-recording of Space Oddity (as performed on Thames TV’s The Kenny Everett New Year Show) which was the B-side to non-album single Alabama Song (also included!).

The box set adheres fairly rigidly to the ‘rules’ of the previous packages, and therefore excludes any material not commercially released in the original era. The previously unreleased bonus tracks that were appended to the 1990-1992 Rykodisc/EMI reissues such as Some Are, All Saints (Low)Abdulmajid (“Heroes”) and I Pray, Olé (Lodger), are not included.

The 11 CD box includes ‘mini-LP CD’ vinyl replica versions of the original albums and the CDs are gold, not silver. The 13 LP vinyl set has the same content as the CD box and is pressed on 180g vinyl. As noted, Stage is pressed on yellow vinyl.

Both versions of this box come with a book (128 pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set) that 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.

A New Career In A New Town will be released on 29 September 2017. At the time of writing, fans in the US can lock into a great pre-order price of $159 for the vinyl box. Update: US price has now increased.
