[4th September 2019 - London] Parlophone Records is proud to announce DAVID BOWIE CONVERSATION PIECE a five CD box set and digital equivalent tracking David's early development throughout 1968 and 1969, via his home demos, BBC radio sessions, studio recordings with guitarist John 'Hutch' Hutchinson and the experimental music and mime group, Feathers. The collection also celebrates the 50th anniversaries of the release of the 'Space Oddity' single and David's second album, David Bowie (aka Space Oddity).
DAVID BOWIE CONVERSATION PIECE contains twelve previously unreleased tracks/demos from the period as well as a brand new mix of the Space Oddity (aka David Bowie) album by long-time Bowie producer/collaborator Tony Visconti.
The new mix of the album now features the title track of the boxset 'Conversation Piece' restored to the tracklisting in its initially intended position, before it was originally dropped due to time constraints of vinyl.
Of the 2019 Space Oddity album mix Visconti says "It was so much fun to find hidden gems of musicianship with more time to mix the second time around, a guitar twiddle here, a trombone blast there, Marc Bolan's voice in a group choir and more detail in general that we overlooked all those years ago when the label gave us a week at the most to mix this album. And in the details you will find 22 year old David Bowie, who would soon take the world by storm."
The 120 page hardback book accompanying the box features exclusive memorabilia from the personal collection of David's former manager, the late Ken Pitt, as well as from the David Bowie Archive®, and includes photos by Ray Stevenson, Vernon Dewhurst, David Bebbington, Ken Pitt, Alec Byrne, Tony Visconti and Jojanneke Claasen.
The sleeve notes have been written for the release by Bowie experts Mark Adams, Tris Penna and Kevin Cann along with contributions from David's lifelong friend George Underwood, Tony Visconti, Vernon Dewhurst, Dana Gillespie and John 'Hutch' Hutchinson.
The 2019 mix of the SPACE ODDITY album will also be released separately and individually on CD, standard digital, 96/24 digital and vinyl. The various vinyl configurations will be randomly distributed worldwide with a mixture of hand-numbered labels; numbers 1 to 1969 on silver vinyl numbers and 1970 to 2019 on gold vinyl, with the remainder being black vinyl.
