Limited Edition 10 CD box set out now
David Bowie’s legendary career is like no other – he’s done it all. This limited edition, one-off box set celebrates some of his more recent work from the last decade and is sure to excite fans and critics alike.
Each album is furnished with a bonus disc containing remixes, bonus material previously released on special editions, extra tracks from single releases –watch out for remixes by Moby, Marius de Vries, covers of classics such as Waterloo Sunset, a wealth of material gathered in one single box to really complete the Bowie story of the last decade.
Albums are housed in paper sleeves (which are complete replicas of original vinyl sleeves) and presented in slipcase. Each disc has its own individual booklet.
Originally intended to be the first of five story-telling concept albums, Outside introduced the characters in a "non-linear gothic drama hyper cycle" called the "Diaries of Nathan Adler".
Earthling showcases an electronica-influenced sound that seems inspired by the rave culture of the 1990s. Because of this, this album was also a return to form for Bowie as an alternative artist embracing underground music — in this case, techno and jungle.
After releasing the techno industrial, Trent Reznor-influenced Earthling in 1997, David Bowie came back down to Earth on Hours. And although this album has an ambient feel and contains its share of loops and programming, it is organic overall. Hours manages to be cutting edge and personal at the same time.
David Bowie’s 23rd studio album Heathen successfully reunites Bowie with producer Tony Visconti (the man at the controls during the Berlin-era as well as Scary Monsters And Super Creeps) and finds rock's greatest chameleon once again remoulding his past, advancing to new vistas by moving up that metaphorical hill backwards.
The album features a myriad of guest musicians such as Pete Townshend, Dave Grohl, and the Borneo Horns. The bonus disc includes tracks remixed by Moby, and Air who both cite Bowie as a major influence.
Bowie has always been accused of possessing a chameleon like persona, but the 'reality' is that he simply has the courage to explore every aspect of music that he takes a fancy to. Reality is no exception. Just a shade further towards inventiveness than Heathen, Bowie pulls together a full album set that possesses his entire creativeness with no filler.
Outside/Earthling/Hours/Heathen/Reality is a limited edition box set and a real collector’s item!
