David Bowie - Sound and Vision: 40th Anniversary Edition (7" - Picture Disc)
Brand New 2017 Remaster of "Sound And Vision" Plus First Physical Release of 2013 Remix by Sonjay Prabhakar
Originally released in February 1977 in the UK, February 2017 sees the release of the next David Bowie 40th anniversary picture disc - "Sound And Vision." A No. 3 UK hit for Bowie in 1977 when it was released as the first single from the timeless classic Low, "Sound And Vision" was unorthodox in that the lead vocal didn't appear until half way through the song. It was unusual too for a single not to precede an album release, and considering this and the fact that RCA barely promoted the single in the UK, it's surprising "Sound And Vision" performed so well on the chart.
Brilliantly produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti, the song features a guest vocal from Mary Visconti (Nee Hopkin), the co-producer's then wife. It also boasts a backing vocal from Brian Eno and was the first record to feature his voice in the UK singles chart. (He didn't sing on the early Roxy Music hits). The A side of this release has a brand new remaster of "Sound And Vision," while the AA side sees the first physical release of the 2013 remix of the song. This beautiful, stripped-back remix by Sonjay Prabhakar was originally created for a Sony Experia advert and utilizes the original Bowie lead vocal and Mary's backing vocal with a new piano part.
