A new batch of David Bowie reissues have been announced, all releasing on 10th February. Covering his prolific output from 1974 – 76, the reissues see ‘Diamond Dogs’, ‘Young Americans’ and ‘Station To Station’ back in print on vinyl for the first time in over two decades. Also seeing rerelease are the live records ‘David Live’ and ‘Nassau Coliseum ’76’. All albums will be released on 180 gram vinyl and ‘David Live’ will be a triple LP set. In addition to vinyl releases, CD versions will also be available.

Whilst the other albums in this campaign have all seen release before, ‘Nassau Coliseum ’76’ will actually be the first time the live set has ever had a standalone release. It has been included in box sets before (including the 2010 deluxe reissue of ‘Station To Station’) and, prior to that, it was widely bootlegged – so it’s good to see the fan favourite set get an official wide release.
The mid ’70’s were a time of wild excess and even greater inspiration for Bowie and he produced some of his most exhilarating work during that period. ‘Station To Station’ is argubably his greatest album, or at least one of them, and the deranged funk of ‘Young Americans’ kick started his so-called ‘Plastic Soul’ era.
