Get ready to queue early on 22nd April, as the highlight of Record Store Day this year will undoubtedly be two rare Bowie albums on limited vinyl.
Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles 1974) is a 6 disc boxset of material recorded on the Philly Dogs tour. The tour came after Diamond Dogs and before Young Americans where Bowie annoyed his management company by giving away his 'Hunger City' set, along with baffling some fans by playing his new soul numbers. The band featured Luther Vandross on backing vocals.
The second album is Bowpromo, a 7 track set from 1971, originally sent out in small numbers to promote the upcoming Hunky Dory album. This is a single album but has some nice Bowie prints included.
