David Bowie: More Reissues Released

Share This:

Last year saw gold vinyl versions of David Bowie‘s Hunky Dory and The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, released 45 years to the day of the first issuing of Ziggy. To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Aladdin Sane album, there will be a special limited edition silver vinyl version released.

This strictly limited one-run-only silver vinyl edition will contain Ken Scott’s approved 2013 remaster and will be released on April 20, 45 years to the day since the original release date for the album. Previously thought to have been issued on April 13, 1973, new evidence has come to light that proves the release date was officially the 20th, but being Good Friday in the U.K. the album was made available on the 19th.

This release will only be available to bricks and mortar retail stores and not through online stores.

Also being reissued is Changestwobowie. This followup to Bowie’s first best-of compilation, Changesonebowie, has not officially been available since the late 1980s. Featuring cover photography by Greg Gorman, it was first released in 1981 and was only briefly available on CD in 1985 but has long since been deleted.

Drawing on material spanning from Hunky Dory (1971) to Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) (1980), it achieved gold status in the U.K. album chart in 1982. It will be reissued on April 13 with all tracks remastered on CD in a digipak sleeve, high-resolution 192/24 and 96/24 digital and standard digital for streaming and download, as well as a 180gram vinyl edition available randomly on its initial limited manufacturing run in black and blue vinyl before reverting solely to black vinyl.
