12 Gold CD Box Set Pressed by Optimal in Germany!

On June 23, 1971, David Bowie performed for the first time at what was then known as the ‘Glastonbury Fair’. In the year 2015, Parlophone Records proudly announced the release of DAVID BOWIE FIVE YEARS 1969 – 1973, the first in a series of box sets spanning his career.

The 10-album/12-Gold CD box set features all of the material officially released by Bowie during the nascent stage of his career from 1969 to 1973. All of the formats include tracks that have never before appeared on CD/digitally as well as new remasters. Exclusive to the boxed set is Re:Call 1, a new 2-disc compilation of non-album singles, single versions & b-sides. It features 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.

Also exclusive to the box sets of FIVE YEARS 1969 - 1973 is a 2003 stereo remix of The Rise and Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars by the album's original co-producer Ken Scott, previously only available on DVD with the LP/DVD format of the 40th anniversary edition of the album.

The Gold CD box set includes faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions of the original albums and the CDs are gold rather than the usual silver. An alternate cover has been created for the 2003 mix of Ziggy Stardust by Ken Scott, which features an outtake from the original Heddon Street photo session. There is also newly originated artwork for Re:Call 1 featuring a 1973 in-studio image from renowned photographer Mick Rock.

The boxed set's accompanying book, 128 pages in the CD box, 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.

"Five Years captures [Bowie] as he reaches artistic maturity, achieves fame, forms and dissolves the Spiders from Mars, and adopts and ditches his Ziggy Stardust persona." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, 4.5/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics.
