I was very excited today to read that David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars will be rereleased this June on both digital and vinyl in celebration of it's 40th Anniversary.
The re-release will contain remastered audio of all 11 of the album's tracks. In addition, the vinyl includes an audio DVD featuring previously unreleased mixes of some of the album's tracks.
Bowie holds the first place position with the Beatles as my all time favorite artists. When I bought a record player a few years back, his were some of the first vintage vinyl I went for. So today as I move through my Bilerico duties on my lap-top, on my stoop, in 81 degree sunny weather here in DC, it will be with the windows open and Ziggy blasting to the neighbors. Thanks for the inspiration.
Enjoy some Ziggy after the jump and look for the reissue June 5th.
