The tracklist has been revealed for David Bowie‘s latest box set, Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976).

The follow up to David Bowie Five Years (1969 – 1973), this new set will be released on September 23 and will contain the previously unreleased album from 1974, The Gouster.

The twelve CD box, thirteen-piece vinyl set and digital download 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 1990’s, includes Diamond Dogs, David Live (in original and 2005 mixes), Young Americans, Station To Station (in original and 2010 mixes), as well as The Gouster, Live Nassau Coliseum 76 and a new compilation, RE:CALL 2, which collects single versions and non-album B-sides.

All of the formats include tracks that have never before appeared on CD/vinyl/digitally as well as new remasters.

The Gouster 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.

The box set’s accompanying book, 128 pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set, will feature rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Eric Stephen Jacobs, Tom Kelley, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O’Neill, Steve Schapiro, and many others as well as historical press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 Visconti and Maslin.

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