David Bowie / A New Careeer In A New Town 1977-1982 / 13LP or 11CD box

David Bowie / A New Career In A New Town 1977 – 1982 (vinyl & CD box set)

“There’s Old Wave. There’s New Wave. And There’s David Bowie.” If David Bowie hadn’t recorded anything in the 1970s after Station To Station he’d still have had an incredible run of albums that few could match. But in 1977 he casually released Low and Heroes and then in 1979 completed his so-called Berlin Trilogy with Lodger. Live album Stage was issued in between, in 1978 (the only year in the decade that Bowie didn’t issue a studio album). David signed off his golden years, with Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) – arguably just as good as the other three. This ushered in a few years of big hits including Ashes To Ashes, Fashion and Under Pressure (with Queen). All of the above (and more) have been newly remastered and are included in this new box set which is available on 11CD and 13LP vinyl. As before, nothing unreleased, but this is a box set to rule them all. Read more
