Small Club Broadcast

// February 9th, 2019 // No Comments » // David Bowie

EXTRAORDINARY PARIS BROADCAST FROM BOWIE S SMALL SCALE HOURS TOUR Released on 4th October 1999, Hours – David Bowie s 21st studio album – was the first record by a major artist to be available to download in its entirety from the internet. Bowie had composed the songs for the album with guitarist Reeves Gabrels, who also appeared on the album. The Hours tour took in just eight live shows, with gigs played in London, Dublin, Vienna, Milan, Copenhagen, and on 14th October, at Paris s Élysée Montmartre. Filmed for broadcast both in Europe and across the US, this special concert is now available on CD for the first time. Featuring a band made up of ex-Helmet guitarist Page Hamilton, Mark Plati on lead and rhythm guitar, Gail Ann Dorsey on bass, Sterling Campbell on drums and the ubiquitous Mike Garson on keyboards (who else?), this small club show is all at once dynamic, intimate, and yet somewhat extraordinary, and has to be heard to be truly appreciated. For reasons still somewhat unclear, Mr Gabrels was nowhere to be seen.

Never Let Me Down (2018 Remastered Version)(LP)

// January 13th, 2019 // 2 Comments » // David Bowie

A new production of the 1987 album. The seeds of this new reimagining of the albums were first sown in 2008 when David asked Mario McNulty to remix the track ‘Time Will Crawl’ and record new drums by longtime Bowie drummer, Sterling Campbell along with strings. The track was issued on the iSelect compilation to much acclaim, and in the notes, for that record, David remarked ‘Oh, to redo the rest of that album’.  

Fast-forward to early 2018 McNulty entered Electric Lady Studios in New York with Sterling, Tim Lefebvre on bass, who was in the ★ (“Blackstar”) band and Reeves Gabrels and David Torn on guitars. All of the musicians had a history with David, so were a perfect fit for what now sound like brand new songs. Nico Muhly, whom Mario first met when they were both interns working for Philip Glass in 2001, has handled the string arrangements.

Glass Spider (Live Montreal ’87) [2018 Remastered Version](2CD)

// January 9th, 2019 // No Comments » // David Bowie

Newly remastered versions of the live album. The tour’s innovative set and marriage of music and theatre has been cited as a big inspiration to acts in the 2000’s. 

Speaking in 1991 about Glass Spider, Bowie said, “It was the first time I’d had the opportunity to spend that kind of money and do shows like that! The first time since Diamond Dogs, anyway … I thought, Right! Let’s really spend some money! I had all these thwarted dreams of what I’d tried to do with rock ‘n roll in the early ’70s”.

Heathen (180 Gram Audiophile Blue Vinyl/Tri-fold Cover/Limited Edition)

// December 26th, 2018 // 3 Comments » // David Bowie

David Bowie is truly a gift to rock music fans everywhere. There will never be another David Bowie, an artistic genius who has enthralled generations of aspiring musicians and music lovers the world over with the many fine recordings and concert tours he’s created seamlessly for many years. Celebrating over four decades in the music business, this English native initially captivated millions of kids in the 70’s with his Ziggy Stardust persona. He drove the rockers mad with his stellar concerts and dynamic presence on the stage. As David moved on and started venturing into other fields of music, film and art, he soon emerged as one of the early founders of alternative and ambient music with albums like Low and Heroes. At the turn of the millennium, Bowie scored a new legion of fans with more harder edged recordings like his 2002 multi-platinum masterwork Heathen. Heathen kicks things off with the hard rock guitar sounds on Sunday. This radio and fan favorite graced the alternative and college radio stations and helped bolster even further the rest of the Lp with follow up hits like the tour de force Slow Burn featuring the legendary Pete Townsend, and a stellar revisit of Neil Young’s I’ve Been Waiting For You featuring the guitar work of Dave Grohl. More classics like Cactus, Everyone Says ‘Hi’ and A Better Future have all become major fan favorites from this masterful David Bowie recording. All in all, a truly remarkable album which paved the way to a whole new level of fans as David Bowie continues to be a major force in the music of now and forever. Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary David Bowie, as we’ve been releasing his fine recordings on our label. That is why we are so very proud to announce another first installment in The David Bowie/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary masterpiece Heathen. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (David Bowie/Jeff Beck/Deep Purple) for the first time on audiophile vinyl, David Bowie’s Heathen will truly become one of the most important and historical 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl titles in quite some time. To celebrate David Bowie’s amazing career, we further enhance this limited anniversary edition with a stunning tri-fold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as being pressed by R.T.I on translucent blue vinyl. Everyone Says Hi!!!!

Let’s Dance (Demo) [12″ VINYL]

// November 29th, 2018 // 3 Comments » // David Bowie

This black vinyl 45 rpm 12” single features the first appearance of the full length demo of ‘Let’s Dance’, previously released in an edited form through digital download and streaming services for David’s birthday on 8th January this year. The full length version clocks in at 7.34, compared the edit which is 5.19 in length. Both versions were mixed by Nile Rodgers (original co-producer of the demo with David) in December of last year. The demo is backed by the live version of ‘Let’s Dance’, which was recorded live at Pacific National Exhibition Coliseum in Vancouver on 12th September 1983 and mixed by Bob Clearmountain. This version can be seen on the Serious Moonlight concert film, and was also previously available on the reverse of the Australian David Bowie Is exhibition as an exclusive yellow vinyl 7” single. The sleeve of the 12” single is a colour variation of the original Let’s Dance single cover.

1966 – David Bowie

// November 27th, 2018 // 1 Comment » // David Bowie

Digitally remastered collection of early tracks from the rock icon remastered with a crisp and lively sound and a superb sleeve from the era. In 1972, at the height of David Bowie’s glam-era fame, former label Pye unlocked the vault and produced an EP, the aptly subtitled For the Collector – Early David Bowie, reprising four of the six songs Bowie recorded during 1965-1966. Since that time, those four (plus their two companions) have established themselves as mod pop classics. Here they are now in their glory – half a dozen slices of the young Bowie at his most endearing mourning lost love and celebrating youthful promise, with his whole life ahead of him and fame still more than half a decade away.
