David Bowie’s ‘Diamond Dogs’ To Be Reissued For 50th Anniversary

David Bowie‘s 1974 album Diamond Dogs will be reissued in celebration of its 50th anniversary on May 24.

Diamond Dogs will be issued as a limited edition 50th anniversary half-speed mastered LP and a picture disc LP pressed from the same master.

Bowie’s landmark single “Rebel Rebel” appeared in a remixed form on his eighth and most musically adventurous album, Diamond Dogs.

The single reached No. 5 in the U.K. and the album would also reach similar heights on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 5 in the US.

This new pressing of Diamond Dogs was cut on a customized late Neumann VMS80 lathe with fully recapped electronics from 192kHz restored masters of the original master tapes, with no additional processing on transfer. The half-speed was cut by John Webber at AIR Studios.

Diamond Dogs 50th Anniversary Half Speed Mastered LP and Diamond Dogs 50th Anniversary Picture Disc LP are available on Parlophone.
