The RSD favourite, Welcome To The Blackout (Live London ’78), which was the best-selling RSD release in the UK and second best in the US, is due to be issued as a 2CD set and as standard and high resolution digital for download and streaming.
In the other hand, Parlophone will release two special vinyl reissues exclusively for “brick and mortar” retail stores: Christiane F. – Wir Kinder Vom Bahnhof Zoo on red vinyl and a 10″ trifold sleeve of David Bowie In Bertolt Brecht’s Baal.
Christiane F. – Wir Kinder Vom Bahnhof Zoo is the soundtrack to the 1981 film based on the 1978 autobiography by German actress Christiane Vera Felscherinow. The soundtrack incorporates songs from several Bowie albums, including Stay (Station To Station, 1976), Warszawa (Low, 1977) V-2 Schneider (Heroes, 1977), and Look Back In Anger (Lodger, 1979.) Released on vinyl for the first time in 30 years, this fan favourite will be pressed on limited edition red vinyl. The set includes Mark Adams’ original liner notes from the 2001 CD issue of the album.
David Bowie In Bertolt Brecht’s Baal features Bowie performing five songs that were written for German playwright Bertolt Brecht’s 1918 play Baal. Bowie recorded this EP with Visconti at Hansa Studios in Berlin in November 1981. Recently, all five songs were re-released as part of the exclusive Re:Call 3 compilation that accompanied the box set, A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982). This new limited edition 10” vinyl reissue comes in a six-panel sleeve that replicates the original 1982 packaging.
