DAVID BOWIE GLASTONBURY 2000 AT LAST

At last....CHECK OUT OUR SPECIAL PRE-ORDER OFFERS

DAVID BOWIE ‘GLASTONBURY 2000’ documents Bowie’s legendary Sunday night headline performance on 25th June at the most famous festival on earth. The legendary full performance released for the first time including many of David’s greatest hits and never before seen footage.
The package includes the full 21 song greatest hits set and for the first time, a DVD of the entire show (only 30 minutes of which has ever been broadcast on TV) including the Glastonbury performance of ‘Heroes’, a highlight of the record breaking ‘David Bowie Is…’ exhibition and the only track that has been previously released.

All formats feature David’s diary, originally written for Time Out, which documents him preparing for the show in his own inimitable manner. In addition to newly mastered audio and upgraded video DAVID BOWIE ‘GLASTONBURY 2000’ features new artwork from Jonathan Barnbrook (who worked with Bowie on the sleeves for Heathen, The Next Day & ★) and notes from the renowned author and Bowie fan Caitlin Moran who reviewed the show for The Times.

The package features photos of Bowie resplendently dressed in a 3/4 length one-of-a-kind Alexander McQueen frock coat, the pattern of which was made to echo the hat (the famous ‘bipperty-bopperty hat’ mentioned in the song Queen Bitch) and worn by David at his Glastonbury Fayre debut in 1971.

The Hendrix Box set is for the 50th anniversary of Electric Ladyland:

Product Description
This deluxe box set includes the original album, remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analogue tapes. For the LP set, Grundman prepared an all-analogue, direct-to-disc vinyl transfer of the album, preserving the authenticity. 'Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes' presents 20 demos and studio outtakes, including demos for song ideas Hendrix recorded himself on a reel-to-reel tape at the Drake Hotel, as well as early recording session studio takes featuring guest appearances from Buddy Miles, Stephen Stills and Al Kooper. 'Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68' is part of Experience Hendrix's Dagger Records official bootleg series. The live album documents the band's Los Angeles concert held a few weeks before 'Electric Ladyland' was released. The two-track soundboard recording captures the energy that had the audience in such a frenzy that many concert-goers jumped into the reflecting pool that separated the bandstand from the seats. The Blu-ray features the full-length documentary 'At Last... The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland', the first ever 5.1 surround sound mix of the original album overseen by Hendrix's original engineer Eddie Kramer plus the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio. The box set features a full-colour, 48-page book containing Jimi's handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never-before-published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself. Also included are essays by celebrated journalist David Fricke and Hendrix authority John McDermott. All items are contained in a numbered luxe case-made-book for CD+Blu-ray release and case-made-lift-top-box for the LP+Blu-ray release, with new cover art which is true to Hendrix's original vision of the album's cover - a Linda (McCartney) Eastman photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice in Wonderland in New York's Central Park.

Thanks for the HU, I generally don’t do box sets but that may be the exception. Hopefully the high res will be available from Qobuz.
