DAVID BOWIE LIVE ALBUM AND RARE EP BEING RELEASED FOR RECORD STORE DAY

David Bowie Live Album and Rare EP Being Released for Record Store Day

The late David Bowie’s website announced this week that two collections of rare or unreleased music, a 74′ concert and an EP from 71′ will be released on Record Store Day (April 22nd).

The live album, Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles ’74), was recorded at the Universal Amphitheatre during his Diamond Dogs Tour. The show came after Bowie fired the Spiders From Mars and replaced them with studio musicians.

Bowpromo contains alternate mixes of seven songs recorded during the sessions for Hunky Dory, five of which wound up on the album. It was a split EP, containing five tracks by Dana Gillespie, who was also signed to the Gem Group, a company formed by Bowie’s manager Tony Defries. On this, the first commercial release, Gillespie’s songs have been removed and the package adds five Bowie prints and new liner notes.
