David Bowie Five Years 1969-1973 box set. Six newly remastered albums, two live albums, a compilation of non-album cuts. 180-gram vinyl plus book with rare photos, technical notes

On June 23, 1971, David Bowie performed for the first time at what was then known as the Glastonbury Fair. Now Bowie is about to release a series of box sets that span his entire career. First up is Five Years 1969-1973, which is out September 25 via Parlophone. The box of 13 LPs includes six remastered studio albums, two live albums, and a compilation called Re:Call 1. Re:Call features non-album tracks and previously unreleased material from that period. Re:Call includes a previously unreleased single edit of "All The Madmen," which was originally set for a U.S. release but was never actually released. Also included is the original version of "Holy Holy," which was only ever released on the original 1971 Mercury single and hasn't been available on any release since. The boxed set's accompanying book, at 84 pages, features rarely seen photos as well as technical notes about each album from producers Tony Visconti and Ken Scott, an original press review for each album, and a short foreword by legendary Kinks' front man Ray Davies.
