With less than a year gone since the release of his most recent compilation Nothing Has Changed, David Bowie has announced that a brand new retrospective box set is heading our way.

Five Years 1969-1973 is a 10-album, 12-disc collection that includes remastered versions of David Bowie/Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, and PinUps, as well as reissues of Aladdin Sane and The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. Also included are two live albums, and the first pressing of the 2003 mix of Ziggy Stardust.

The box set will also feature a compilation of non-album cuts and B-sides called Re:Call 1, including a rare version of 'Holy Holy' and an unreleased version of 'All the Madmen'.

Due out on September 25th via Parlophone, the box set is the first in a retrospective series and will be available on both vinyl and CD formats, with plenty of photos, notes, and vintage reviews included, plus a foreword by The Kinks' Ray Davies.
