Breaking Glass (Live EP) 40th Anniversary Picture Disc Vinyl
7 Inch £14.00
Release Date: 16/11/2018
16th November, 2018 sees the release of the latest special limited DAVID BOWIE 7" picture discs, the 40th-anniversary edition of the BREAKING GLASS E.P.. The new extended version of the E.P. features three previously unreleased live versions of the original E.P. tracks plus the addition of an unreleased live version of ‘Hang On To Yourself’.
The E.P. now features ‘BREAKING GLASS’, ‘ART DECADE’, ‘HANG ON TO YOURSELF’ and ‘ZIGGY STARDUST’ live from Earls Court in London during the Isolar II tour of 1978. These four tracks are alternative performances to the ones that recently appeared on the critically acclaimed live album WELCOME TO THE BLACKOUT (LIVE LONDON ’78), and none were featured on the original 1978 E.P..
Initially released in the UK in January 1977 on the groundbreaking LOW album, ‘BREAKING GLASS’ was co-written by Bowie, bassist George Murray and drummer Dennis Davis. A longer, reworked version of the song was a staple of the Isolar II Tour, and a live version from that tour was used as the lead track on the original live 7" E.P. to promote Bowie's second live album, STAGE in 1978.
