David Bowie - Conversation Piece contains twelve previously unreleased tracks/demos from the 1968-1969 period as well as a brand new mix of the Space Oddity (aka David Bowie) album by long time Bowie producer/collaborator Tony Visconti.

 

The new mix of the album now features the title track of the boxset ‘Conversation Piece’ restored to the tracklisting in its initially intended position before it was originally dropped due to time constraints of vinyl.

 

The 120 page hardback book accompanying the box features exclusive memorabilia from the personal collection of David’s former manager, the late Ken Pitt, as well as from the David Bowie Archive®, and includes photos by Ray Stevenson, Vernon Dewhurst, David Bebbington, Ken Pitt, Alec Byrne, Tony Visconti and Jojanneke Claasen.
