16th November 2018, sees the release of the latest limited DAVID BOWIE 7″ picture disc, the 40th-anniversary edition of the BREAKING GLASS EP.
This new version of the EP features three previously unreleased live versions of the original EP tracks plus the addition of an unreleased live version of Hang On To Yourself.
The Breaking Glass EP now features: BREAKING GLASS, ART DECADE, HANG ON TO YOURSELF and ZIGGY STARDUST live from Earls Court in London during the Isolar II tour of 1978.
These four tracks are alternative performances to the ones that recently appeared on the critically acclaimed live album WELCOME TO THE BLACKOUT (LIVE LONDON ’78), and none were featured on the original 1978 EP.
Initially released in the UK in January 1977 on the ground-breaking LOW album, the studio version of Breaking Glass was co-written by Bowie, bassist George Murray and drummer Dennis Davis. A longer, reworked version of the song was a staple of the Isolar II Tour, and a live version from that tour was used as the lead track on the original live 7″ EP to promote Bowie’s second live album, STAGE, in 1978.
The images used on the picture disc are by Masayoshi Sukita (A-Side) and Andrew Kent (AA-Side) taken during the Isolar II tour of 1978.
