David Bowie: demos e raridades serão lançadas em box

Caixa irá cobrir o período envolvendo o fim dos anos 60

Por Luiz Athayde

Os dias iniciais da extensa carreira de David Bowie serão comprensados em uma caixa com 5 discos. Conversation Piece irá cobrir os anos de 1968 e 1969, ou seja, registros envolvendo o álbum Space Oddity. Serão demos e raridades incluindo gravações caseiras e trabalhos com o guitarrista John “Hutch” Hutchinson, além de faixas experimentais e de quando integrava o grupo Feathers.

Empolgado com a nova mixagem, o produtor Tony Visconti disse:

“Foi muito divertido encontrar jóias escondidas na musicalidade com mais tempo para mixar na segunda vez, um toque de guitarra aqui, um de trombone ali, a voz do Marc Bolan no coro de grupo e mais detalhes em geral que todos ignoramos anos atrás quando a gravadora nos deu uma semana no máximo para mixar esse álbum”.

Conversation Piece sai da fornalha no dia 15 de novembro. Confira as faixas.
