190295989835-ps190295989835Who Can I Be Now?, a new David Bowie box set (CD or vinyl) covering 1974-1976, was  just released, and to celebrate Rhino Records sent us a vinyl box set ($250 value) to give away to one lucky customer! The winner also will get a Bowie shirt, turntable slipmat and mouse pad.

To enter the drawing, send an email* with the subject “David Bowie” HERE by midnight Thursday, Oct. 13. We will draw a name and notify the winner on Oct. 14.

The twelve-CD box and thirteen-piece vinyl set feature all of the material officially released by Bowie during the so-called ‘American’ phase of his career from 1974 to 1976.

The box set, which is named after a track recorded in 1974 but not officially released until the 1990s, includes ‘DIAMOND DOGS’, ‘DAVID LIVE’ (in original and 2005 mixes), ‘YOUNG AMERICANS’ and ‘STATION TO STATION’ (in original and 2010 mixes) as well as ‘THE GOUSTER’, ‘LIVE NASSAU COLISEUM 76’ and a new compilation entitled ‘RE:CALL 2’ which is a collection of single versions and non-album b-sides.


Exclusive to the box set is ‘THE GOUSTER,’ previously unreleased as a complete album. It was recorded at Sigma Sound, Philadelphia in 1974 and produced by Tony Visconti. The album was mixed and mastered before David decamped to New York to work with John Lennon and Harry Maslin on what became the ‘YOUNG AMERICANS’ album. ‘THE GOUSTER’ contains three previously unreleased mixes of ‘Right’, ‘Can You Hear Me’ and ‘Somebody Up There Likes Me’.

For the 2016 release, Tony Visconti has overseen the mastering from the original tapes and photos taken by Eric Stephen Jacobs have been put together for the sleeve based around one of David’s original concepts for the album.

Also exclusive to the box sets are the remastered ‘DAVID LIVE (original mix)’, the 2010 Harry Maslin mix of ‘STATION TO STATION’ (previously only available on an audio only DVD in 5.1 and stereo as part of the ‘STATION TO STATION’ deluxe box set in 2010) and ‘RE:CALL 2’.

‘RE:CALL 2’ features the original single mix of ‘Rebel Rebel’, which has only featured on a 40th anniversary picture disc in 2014 since its original release on single in 1974, and a previously unreleased on CD Australian single edit of ‘Diamond Dogs’, the only place in the world that this edit was issued. Also appearing on CD for the first time is the single edit of the live version of ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll With Me’, which was issued to radio stations in the U.S. to help promote the ‘DAVID LIVE’ album.

‘RE:CALL 2’ features newly originated artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the ‘STATION TO STATION’ recording sessions by David’s friend and backing vocalist Geoff MacCormack aka Warren Peace.

The alternative cover for the 2010 mix of ‘STATION TO STATION’ by Harry Maslin, features the originally intended colour sleeve for the album that never got further than a few colour proofs and was replaced by the more familiar black and white image.

The vinyl box set has the same content as the CD set and is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl.

The box sets’ accompanying book, 128 pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set, features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Eric Stephen Jacobs, Tom Kelley, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O’Neill, Steve Schapiro, and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producers Tony Visconti and Harry Maslin.

The CD box set includes faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions of the original albums and the CDs are gold coloured rather than the usual silver.

* One entry per person, NOT per email address. If you have 16 email addresses and you enter with each address, we’ll just delete 15 of them. We have the technology. To be eligible to win, you must live in the Boise metro area and be able to pick up your prize at the store.

unnamed-1For the third year in a row, RED Distribution has teamed with an array of artists to offer limited-edition exclusive pink vinyl versions of new and recent albums for the Ten Bands One Cause fundraiser, and The Record Exchange is celebrating with an all-day listening party on Tuesday, Sept. 27!

Join us to hear tracks from the albums and enjoy a free pink donut from our friends at Guru Donuts! The first 10 people to purchase vinyl get a CD of Gilda Radner’s classic 1979 album “Live from New York” free with purchase!

Over the last 2 years, RED has donated over $65,000 to Gilda’s Club NYC by shipping pink vinyl to retailers all over the country during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from the disease at the age of 43 in 1989, Gilda’s Club is an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers.

Ten Bands One Cause returns Sept. 27, but this time things are a little different. Cancer impacts all of us, so RED open it up to the industry and WEA answered the call. Seven of the 10 bands are RED acts and 3 are WEA acts. Their goal together is to raise more money this year than RED did in the first two years.

2016 Ten Bands One Cause titles:

AnthraxFor All Kings
Courtney BarnettSometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit
Ed SheeranX
Jim Breuer and the Loud and RowdySongs from the Garage
