David Bowie – Bowie at the Beeb: The Best of the BBC Radio Sessions ‘68 – ‘72 ~ Released 26th February

£72.99 – 4 x 180g black vinyl with a 20 page 12″ booklet housed in a lift off lid box, covered with printed wibalin fine line structured cloth

In the late 1960’s David Bowie entered the BBC studios for the first time to record his first session for BBC radio and between 1968 and 1972, David recorded 12 sessions for BBC radio.

This compilation pulls together the very best of those sessions.

In 2000 when ‘Bowie at the Beeb’ was released on CD there was an exclusive Japanese version which included  “Oh! You Pretty Things” from the Sounds Of The 70’s session recorded in 1971 featuring just David and Mick Ronson.  This track has been added to this vinyl box set alongside an additional exclusive bonus track, the lost “The Supermen” from the Sounds Of The 70’s session recorded in 1970 featuring David’s band of the time ‘The Hype’.

 ‘Bowie at the Beeb’ has never been available on vinyl before.

The cover art for the album is an original piece by Belgian artist Guy Peellaert who was also responsible for the ‘Diamond Dogs’ artwork. He created a moment in history by reworking, in his super real style, a Mick Rock photograph of David, and a Sarah McCormack photograph of BBC Maida Vale Studio 3 and bringing the 2 together to create a truly classic Bowie album sleeve.
