Rare And Unreleased Bowie Material Set For Releaseby

It’s hard to believe that it has been over a year since the music world lost the immeasurable David Bowie, who passed away from cancer at the age of 69 – yet here we are in 2017, with many of us still reeling from one of the most shocking passings of recent years. The groundbreaking rock star knew of his mortality all too well, having recorded his last album, Blackstar, along with a music video for the lead track Lazarus, both of which seemed to hint at impending death. It was revealed that Bowie knew of his terminal state months ahead of his passing, which perhaps made for an all the more fitting, though no less devastating, final LP. Thankfully, though, there are many recordings and rarities yet to be unearthed – huge stars such as Bowie thankfully do not record by halves, and in a similar situation to Prince and Michael Jackson, there are recordings set to make their way into public airplay for the first time in decades.

To celebrate Record Store Day on April 22nd, limited editions of two new Bowie collections will be unveiled and available for public purchase. These albums are Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles 1974) and Bowpromo. Cracked Actor is an unreleased LP comprising of three albums recorded and played during the star’s 1974 Philly Dogs Tour, with alternative musicians and recordings to those found on existing live albums. This, in particular, may be of interest to Bowie completionists – however, Bowpromo could be set to appeal to a whole different type of fan.

Bowpromo is exactly as it sounds – a promo collection from 1971 that went under the radar and is finally seeing the light of day under wider release. The original album featured recordings from Dana Gillespie – but the new collection will feature only songs recorded by the Thin White Duke.

Both collections will be available for purchase on vinyl to help celebrate Record Store Day, a worldwide event that encourages listeners to discover their local independent music store and to try out new music and vinyls that they may not be aware of. Vinyl is making a huge comeback as of late, and while many will blame this on ‘hipster culture’, it’s long been thought that a scratchy record was always the best way to listen to music – and with Bowie rarities due out on black vinyl disc later this year, there’s never been a better time to get acquainted with the format.
