David Bowie to release "Rebel Rebel" 40th anniversary picture disc
David Bowie is to release a limited edition picture disc commemorating the 40th anniversary of "Rebel Rebel".
This the latest in the run of 40th anniversary 7" picture discs released by Parlophone Records, following on from "Starman", "John I'm Only Dancing", "The Jean Genie", "Drive In Saturday", "Live On Mars" and "Sorrow".
"Rebel Rebel" was originally released in February 1974 and reached No 5 in the UK singles chart.
The A-side of the limited edition 7" picture disc features the original single mix of the track which hasn't been available on 7" since the early 80's and is still unavailable on CD to this day.
The AA-side has the US Version of "Rebel Rebel" which is a remixed version of the song with extra overdubs that was released in May 1974 three months after the first issue, but only in the US, Canada and Mexico.
The artwork for the picture disc features two shots from a session that took place in Amsterdam at the television show Top Pop in February 1974.
The single will be released on March 10.
