Iggy Pop To Release ‘The Bowie Years’ Box Set

Iggy Pop is set to release a 7-CD box set, called The Bowie Years, featuring the David Bowie-produced albums The Idiot and Lust for Life on May 29t via UMe.

The live recording of LP TV Eye, and a disc containing demos and rarities, and a few more live recordings will also be included in the box set.

Pop’s live concerts at the Rainbow Theatre, Finsbury Park (London), The Agora (Cleveland) and Mantra Studios (Chicago) on March 7, 21 and 28, 1977, respectively, are also featured in The Bowie Years.

uDiscover shared an “alternate mix” of “China Girl,” a song off The Idiot. Bowie recorded the remix for Let’s Dance in 1983. The remix is featured on the disc of demos and rarities that includes single edits, alternate mixes and more.

“This set has been mastered from the best possible sources and contains a 40-page booklet written by the Guardian’s Michael Hahn with contributions from the musicians who played on the records and fans who talk about the influence the albums had on them,” uDiscover added.

The Idiot and Lust for Life will also be released as two-disc reissues. While The Idiot is paired with Live at the Rainbow Theatre, Lust for Life is with Eye Live.

A 40-page booklet with contributions from the musicians who played on the records, as well as fans’ remarks on the influence these albums had on them, will also come with the box set.
