If there is one thing that’s for sure, it’s that David Bowie is never far from our consciousness. As a kid, I first latched on to David Bowie after reading about Hunky Dory in Rolling Stone magazine (as an ad). Today, it’s quite hard to believe just how ingrained he has become. and there’s never enough David Bowie.
On February 10, Rhino And Parlophone will team to release a 2017 remastered 40th Anniversary Limited Edition 7″ picture disc vinyl single (rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?) of “Sound and Vision” b/w a 2013 remix of the same song. The remix was originally completed for a Sony Experia ad. It features the original vocals from the original track but adds in backing vocals by Mary Hopkin. It’s finished with a new piano part. This release marks its first time issued.
Along with that essential single 7″, Rhino and Parlophone will also be reissuing several David Bowie titles on both CD and vinyl LP. Those will include:
- Young Americans (2016 Remaster) – CD and LP
- Station To Station (2016 Remaster) – CD and LP
- Live Nassau Coliseum ’76 – 2CD and 2LP
- Diamond Dogs (2016 Remaster) – CD and LP
- David Live (2005 Mix, Remastered) – 2CD and 3LP
Sounds like great fun especially for those needing (or wanting) the new vinyl LP. Vinyl, by the way, is expected to reach a billion dollars in sales in 2017! Who woulda thought that a few years back?
