David Bowie / Remastered ‘Berlin’ albums available separately next month


In February, Parlophone will issue separate editions on vinyl and CD of the 2017 remasters of David Bowie‘s LowHeroesLodgerScary Monsters (And Super Creeps) and live album Stage. These were previously only available as part of the A New Career In A New Town (ANCIANT) box set.

The exclusives in the box set are obviously not being released separately. They are the 2017 Tony Visconti remix (not remaster) of 1979’s Lodger, the Re:Call 3 compilation and the “Heroes” EP. Also, the box contains two versions of live album Stage but Parlophone are choosing not to bother making the original version available separately, and are just putting out the version which restores the original running order (this was originally released in 2005 but it’s worth remembering the ANCIANT edition is not only remastered but features two previously unreleased bonus tracks Jean Genie and Suffragette City).
