David Bowie 1977-1982 Box Set Coming in September

–Joe Lund

The third installment in a series of box sets spanning David Bowie’s career has been announced for release on September 29. A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982) features five official albums from that period—including the acclaimed “Berlin trilogy” of Low, “Heroes,” and Lodger—plus one EP, a new compilation of B-sides and non-album tracks, and more.

Especially noteworthy is the inclusion of Bowie’s hard-to-find Baal EP and a new remix of Lodger done by longtime Bowie producer Tony Visconti. As reported by Best Classic Bands, Visconti began work on the Lodger remix prior to Bowie’s death, with the artist’s approval. Nuances said to have been buried in the original mix are now brought to the fore. Unseen images from the archival estate of photographer Brian Duffy have been added to the Lodger artwork as well.

A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982) will be available in a variety of configurations, including a 13-LP, 180-gram audiophile boxed vinyl format. A hardback book is included with the both the CD and vinyl versions. The set joins the previously released Five Years (1969-1973) and Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) in a series of ambitious collections from Bowie’s catalog.

Below, listen to an extended version of “Beauty and the Beast,” from the forthcoming set.
