News: David Bowie To Release CD Boxset In September

2 min read

(AUS) The Sound+Vision 4 CD boxset covers David Bowie’s career from 1969 to 1994 starting with the acoustic demo version of his first hit, Space Oddity, to the return to his Bromley roots for the soundtrack to Hanif Kureishi’s The Buddha Of Suburbia which is often cited as the most underrated piece in the Bowie canon. The special 4 CD boxset will be released on September 26 in Australia.

As his surprise return with The Next Day showed, Bowie continues to be a cutting edge musician and artist, icon, fashion guru, and all round inspiration to several generations and remains a unique phenomenon in contemporary culture.

Sound+Vision is a collection spanning four decades, covering the 21 albums from Space Oddity through to The Buddha Of Suburbia. It’s a rich survey of David Bowie’s many musical lives offering a generous helping of hits, an intriguing dip into archives, classic album tracks and long lost B-sides, explosive live recordings, soundtrack recordings and remixes.

Sound+Vision also documents Bowie’s ever-onward work aesthetic. From Dylan inspired folkie (The Wild-Eyed Boy From Freecloud) to the hard-rocking hero of grunge legends Nirvana (‘The Man Who Sold The World’); from Glam Rock superstar (Ziggy Stardust) to white soul pioneer (Young Americans); electronica trailblazer (Warszawa) to first New Romantic (Ashes To Ashes); stadium filling star (Modern Love) to high endurance 90s legend (Jump They Say). He’s been there – and back again – often before anyone else has.

Other albums recorded by Bowie after the time span of this box set are: Outside (1995), Earthling (1997), ‘hours…’ (1999), Heathen (2002), Reality(2003) and The Next Day (2013).
