DAVID BOWIE releases a triple-CD collection of unreleased recordings next week and dotmusic been asked to host an exclusive micro-site to mark the occasion.
Dotmusic, in association with EMI and the BBC, will launch the site on Monday, the same day as the release of 'Bowie At The Beeb'.
The collection, recorded between 1968 and 1972, includes tracks chosen personally by Bowie, the majority of which have been taken from the albums 'Space Oddity', 'Ziggy Stardust', 'The Man Who Sold The World' and 'Hunky Dory'.
Other than stable Bowie acts of genius such as 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide', 'Changes', 'Ziggy Stardust' and 'Five Years', there are non-album tracks and covers, including The Velvet Underground's 'Waiting For The Man'.
The collection also includes his first-ever live performance with guitarist Mick Ronson and his 1968 session with the Tony Visconti trio. Artwork for the album is by Guy Peellaert, responsible for the design of the seminal 'Diamond Dogs' album. The third CD included with the compilation captures Bowie's performance at the BBC Radio Theatre in June earlier this year.
Dotmusic will also be giving away a host of exclusive prizes as part of the micro-site, which includes sound samples, a gallery, screensavers and the full lowdown on 'Bowie At The Beeb'. The prizes include a signed print of the cover art, albums, t-shirts, posters and subscriptions to www.davidbowie.com.
