Breaking Glass E.P (40th Anniversary)
Cat no. 0190295714215
The latest special limited David Bowie 7" picture disc, the 40th-anniversary edition of the Breaking Glass EP. The new extended version of the EP features three previously unreleased live versions of the original EP tracks plus the addition of an unreleased live version of Hang On To Yourself. The EP now features Breaking Glass, Art Decade, Hang on to Yourself and Ziggy Stardust live from Earls Court in London during the Isolar II tour of 1978. These four tracks are alternative performances to the ones that recently appeared on the critically acclaimed live album Welcome to the Blackout (Live London ’78), and none were featured on the original 1978 E.P.. Initially released in the UK in January 1977 on the groundbreaking Low album, Breaking Glass was co-written by Bowie, bassist George Murray and drummer Dennis Davis. A longer, reworked version of the song was a staple of the Isolar II Tour, and a live version from that tour was used as the lead track on the original live 7" E.P. to promote Bowie's second live album, Stage in 1978.
