David Bowie rarities will be available for fans in honor of Record Store Day on April 18.
As per a recent announcement, audio from his 1974 tour will be featured on a two-disc compilation titled I'm Only Dancing (The Soul Tour 74). Available on both CD and vinyl, the upcoming release includes a mostly complete recording of his show at the Michigan Palace in Detroit on October 20, 1974. Now, "Diamond Dogs" won't be featured on the set as it wasn't finished at the time of the show. Among the remaining three tracks on the collection include recordings from his Nashville Municipal Auditorium concert on November 30.
"During a three week break in late 1974, the Diamond Dogs Tour’s elaborate six-ton Hunger City stage set was drastically stripped back, and the tour’s set list overhauled to include as-yet-unreleased tracks from theYoung Americanssessions at Sigma Sound in Philadelphia," a press released read. "The Soul Tour also featured a revamped band, augmented to include musicians and vocalists from those sessions, and rechristened The Mike Garson Band."
In addition to I'm Only Dancing, a second Bowie Record Store Day 2020 collectable deemed Changesnowbowie is set for the annual milestone. That release will feature rehearsals for Bowie's 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
