During his life, it seemed like half the planet was worshipping David Bowie. Since his death, all manner of memorabilia, old footage, unearthed demos and other rarities have come to light, proving that amongst the world of musical collectors, Bowie’s fans were among the most dedicated.
However Bowie’s death also opened up his work to millions of new fans. If you count yourself amongst these numbers, chances are you don’t have a signed copy of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust sitting in your basement, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join the collecting game now.
A brand new box set covering the Berlin era of David Bowie’s back catalogue has been announced, featuring an 84-page art book and an album of B-sides.
The collection is called A New Career In A New Town, and covers the ‘Berlin’ period of Bowie’s lifetime, 1977-1982. This includes the album trilogy of Low (1977), Heroes (1977), and Lodger (1979).
Also included will be a 2017 reissue of Bowies’ 1978 live album Stage on yellow vinyl, a new album of unreleased tracks and B-sides, and an 84-page art book.
This follows on from previous box sets Five Years (1969-1973) and Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976), with no news of further sets announced yet.
