Buzzing: Rare Bowie works to be reissued for Record Store Day

Rare Bowie works to be reissued for Record Store Day

Two rare recordings from rock legend David Bowie will be reissued on April 22, the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day, the global celebration of vinyl's rebirth, his label said last Friday.

The albums are Cracked Actor, which puts together recordings from Bowie's 1974 concert in Los Angeles for the first time, and Bowpromo, a 1971 promotional release with alternative versions of tracks that would come out later that year on one of his classic albums, Hunky Dory.
