Limited edition David Bowie albums to be released for Record Store Day

Duarte Garrido, Entertainment Reporter

Two limited edition David Bowie albums featuring rare photos and original prints will be released next month.

In the same year the artist was posthumously awarded with two Brits and vinyl sales witnessed an unlikely revival in part due to his last album Blackstar, David Bowie still has something new to offer.

A full 1974 live show and an album of alternate versions of classic songs by the artist once known as Ziggy Stardust will be released, along with rare photos and original prints.

The bad news? Fans will have to wait until April, when they will be made available to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day on 22 April.

Cracked Actor, recorded during the late music superstar's Philly Dogs Tour show at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles in 1974, will feature some of Bowie's best-loved anthems, including Suffragette City, Changes and Space Oddity.

The record also features unseen photos from the gig as well as newly commissioned artwork.

Bowpromo features alternative mixes of some tracks eventually released on the musician's Hunky Dory album, including Kooks and Oh! You Pretty Things.

It is believed that fewer than 500 copies were pressed when it was sent to journalists and music industry insiders in 1971.
