“Strange, mad celebration”

 

Out on February 26th 2016 is the vinyl box set of Bowie At The Beeb, originally mooted for release in 2000.

Previously released on CD the same year, this is the debut of the Best Of David Bowie’s BBC radio sessions from 1968 – 1972 on vinyl.

The 39-track 4-disk set comes in a lift off lid box and features a full colour 20 page booklet. This vinyl version features Oh! You Pretty Things from the Sounds Of The 70s Bob Harris session, broadcast in September 1971, which was previously exclusive to the Japanese release of the CD. This performance features just David and Mick Ronson as a duo.

Completely exclusive to this collection, and therefore making its debut, is the once lost The Supermen from the Sounds Of The 70s Andy Ferris session, broadcast in March 1970, and performed by The Hype. This recording was only rediscovered during the research for the original CD set and remained unreleased until now.

Keep reading for the tracklisting for the eight sides.
