David Bowie ‘Five Years’ live albums available separately on vinyl


The two live albums that were included as part of the David Bowie Five Years box set will be made available separately on vinyl next month.

Live Santa Monica ’72 and Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars – The Motion Picture Soundtrack are both 2LP sets. The latter was, of course, recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 3 July 1973 but not issued until 1983 when D. A. Pennebaker’s documentary was finally released theatrically around the world (only ten years late).

Live Santa Monica ’72 dates from about nine months earlier and was recorded at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on 20 October 1972. Like the Ziggy live album this wasn’t given an official release in the 1970s either, although it was widely bootlegged. In fact, it wasn’t officially issued until 36 years later, making the 10-year delay for the Hammersmith soundtrack seem very brief indeed.

Assuming the packaging is identical to the Five Years box (unlikely that it will be any different) Ziggy is a glossy gatefold with both vinyl records in poly-lined sleeves. Two printed inner sleeves are also supplied. Santa Monica isn’t a gatefold but it’s a similar deal, with two 180g records in poly-lined sleeves and two excellent additional printed inner sleeves with George Underwood’s paintings on one side of each sleeve. The front of Santa Monica is also spot varnished.

Live Santa Monica ’72 and Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars – The Motion Picture Soundtrack are both issued on 2LP vinyl record on 17 June 2016.
