David Bowie's Diamond Dogs Celebrates 45th Anniversary

On 24th May 2019, 45 years to the day since the original release date for the album, a strictly limited one run only red vinyl edition of David Bowie's Diamond Dogs featuring the 2016 remaster will be available via ‘bricks and mortar’ retail stores.

The past two years have seen gold vinyl versions of Hunky Dory and The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars and a silver vinyl release of Aladdin Sane released 45 years to the day of the first issuing.
To help celebrate the 45th anniversary of the album, there will also be a special digital single of the original single mix of "Rebel Rebel." 

Preceding the album by more than three months, "Rebel Rebel" peaked at number five on the official U.K. singles chart. The original single mix was substituted by the shorter, ‘phased’ New York Remix single version in North America, featuring a new arrangement and overdubbed vocals. The album originally peaked at #1 in the official albums chart in the U.K. and #5 in the Billboard album chart in the U.S.

On the 2016 box set Who Can I Be Now? the original single mix of "Rebel Rebel" was taken from a pristine copy of a 45rpm single from the time.  The original tape which had been missing since the mid-1970s has now been discovered and remastered for this special one-track digital single.
