David Bowie Who Can I Be Now (1974-1976)

Limited edition 180-gram vinyl 13 LPs and book!

The second in a series of David Bowie box sets!

Featuring the previously unreleased album The Gouster

An unreleased album in addition to remasters of Diamond Dogs, Young Americans, Station to Station and more! It's a treasure trove for David Bowie fans! The second in a series of David Bowie box sets, Who Can I Be Now (1974-1976) contains 13 180-gram LPs featuring material officially released by Bowie during the so-called "American" phase of his groundbreaking musical career from 1974 to 1976.

The box set, which is named after a track recorded in 1974 but not officially released until the 1990's, includes Diamond Dogs, David Live (in original and 2005 mixes), Young Americans and Station To Station (in original and 2010 mixes) as well as Live Nassau Coliseum 76 and a new compilation titled Re:Call 2 which is a collection of single versions and non-album b-sides

The most notable disc in the set is The Gouster. Recorded amid his "plastic soul" era in 1974, Bowie embraced elements of funk, R&B, and soul music while working in the studio, Sigma Sound, Philadelphia in 1974. The result was a seven-track effort that began with a re-recorded version of "John, I'm Only Dancing" and also included tracks such as "Young Americans," "Somebody Up There Likes Me" and "Can You Hear Me?" While The Gouster never saw release, several album tracks were reconfigured and released on 1975's Young Americans. The Gouster contains three previously unreleased mixes of "Right," "Can You Hear Me" and "Somebody Up There Likes Me."

For the 2016 release, album producer Tony Visconti has overseen the mastering from the original tapes and photos taken by Eric Stephen Jacobs have been put together for the sleeve based around one of David's original concepts for the album. Also exclusive to the box sets are the remastered "David Live (original mix)," the 2010 Harry Maslin mix of "Station To Station" (previously only available on an audio only DVD in 5.1 and stereo as part of the Station To Station Deluxe box set in 2010) and Re:Call 2.

Re:Call 2 features the original single mix of ‘Rebel Rebel', which has only featured on a 40th anniversary picture disc in 2014 since its original release on single in 1974.

Re:Call 2 features newly originated artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the Station To Station recording sessions by David's friend and backing vocalist Geoff MacCormack aka Warren Peace.

The alternative cover for the 2010 mix of Station To Station by Harry Maslin, features the originally intended color sleeve for the album that never got further than a few color proofs and was replaced by the more familiar black and white image.

The vinyl box set is pressed on audiophile quality 180-gram vinyl.

The 180-gram vinyl 13LP box set features an 84-page accompanying book which features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Eric Stephen Jacobs, Tom Kelley, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O'Neill, Steve Schapiro, and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producers Tony Visconti and Harry Maslin.

David Live was culled from performances on the 8th, 9th, 10th11th and 12th of July, 1974 at the Tower Theater, Philadelphia.
