David Bowie / ‘Five Years’ vinyl available separately next month

David Bowie / Hunky Dory

Parlophone are to issue vinyl versions of the six studio albums included their David Bowie Five Years box set separately at the end of next month…

Fans whose budget hasn’t stretched to the £200 vinyl box will, in particular, be delighted to be able to pick up 2015 remasters of Hunky Dory and The Man Who Sold The World for around £16 apiece, particularly since those two titles hadn’t been remastered since 1999 and prices on the used market have skyrocketed since David Bowie’s death was announced at the beginning of this week.

The other titles available will be David Bowie/Space Oddity, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Aladdin Sane and Pin Ups.

CD versions of these were released at the time the box set was issued, but the vinyl has been unavailable individually until now. The Re:Call 1 compilation, the vinyl version of Live Santa Monica ’72 and the 2003 remix of Ziggy Stardust on vinyl remain exclusive to Five Years.

These are all 180g vinyl pressings and come with poly-lined inner sleeves and original inserts and/or printed inner sleeves. Aladdin Sane is gatefold, Hunky Dory is laminated and The Man Who Sold The World has the textured sleeve. David Bowie/Space Oddity doesn’t have ‘Space Oddity’ written on the front (which is correct), despite the image on Amazon.

All six albums are reissued on vinyl LP on 26 February 2015, which is the same day the Bowie at the Beeb 4LP vinyl box is issued.
