Sound+Vision

Official Press Release / Rykodisc USA

August 1989

 Over the next 30 months, the world will see the re-release on CD, LP and Cassette some of the most important and influential music of our time. The David Bowie catalogue, which has been unavailable for many years, will be made available in high-quality remastered versions by Rykodisc – kicking off on September 25 with the release of a deluxe, multi-album box set retrospective entitled SOUND+VISION.

SOUND+VISION is a comprehensive overview of the many phases of Bowie’s phenomenal career, including hit singles, essential album tracks, and never before-released material from 1969 through 1980. It will be available in all three configurations: as a boxed set of three Compact Discs, three Cassettes, or six LPs. Meticulously assembled by Rykodisc and David Bowie, SOUND+VISION will feature a permanent outer shell and state-of-the-art image design. The package also contains rare photographs from throughout Bowie’s career and extensive liner notes by Kurt Loder, MTV News anchor and former Rolling Stone editor.

The CD version of SOUND+VISION will feature, as an added bonus, a CDV disc featuring the extraordinary 1980 video clip for the song “Ashes to Ashes,” as well as three previously unreleased audio tracks recorded on the legendary 1972 Ziggy Stardust tour. These audio tracks can be played on any CD player, regardless of video capability.

Coming in 1990: Rykodisc begins its chronological re-release program of Bowie’s original 16 album titles (from SPACE ODDITY to SCARY MONSTERS), long unavailable in any format. For more news and information please call the Rykodisc Hotline: (617) 492-RYKO.
