Fifty-Two Years: The Complete Singles (2016)

Seriously… It Just Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This!

Fifty-Two Years: The Complete Singles includes both sides of every single – all in their original mixes/edits – that David Bowie released in his five decade long career. As the music industry moved away from 7? 45s in the ’90s and ’00s, and toward CD/EPs, 12? dance mixes and downloads, every effort was made here to keep with the original singles concept. So some of these other formats are included if there were unique versions, and it appeared that The Thin White Duke had intended it to be a stand alone release (or to promote a new album). Each of his forays into different genres/personas are fully documented here, with artwork. These 12 volumes are arranged chronologically, but are also designed to highlight different periods in his career. I invite you to explore all of them, especially those that might not be familiar with his body of work. Finally, thanks to 96dbFreak and to our small community for your contributions. – Frank Blank

Northern Soul (Movie and Soundtrack)

The movie is great. Set in 1974, an authentic and uplifting tale of two friends whose horizons are opened up by the discovery of black American soul music.

And the tracks (soundtrack) in the movie is very good. Check out the songs in the movie. In one of the most anticipated releases of the year, Harmless are proud to announce that we will be issuing the soundtrack to the forthcoming film, “Northern Soul” directed by Elaine Constantine. Early viewings confirm that “Northern Soul” will be the most accurate portrayal yet of this legendary musical movement which started in the north of England in the late 1960s and has now spread around the world and become a huge international scene. The film is due to launch in the UK in October 2014 and there will be considerable mainstream media coverage following the recent TV coverage via The One Show on BBC1 and the Culture Show on BBC2.

The soundtrack package for “Northern Soul” consists of CD1: the soundtrack itself containing all the key Northern Soul tracks from the film, CD2: an additional CD of specially chosen Northern Soul tracks compiled by “Northern Soul” director Elaine Constantine and an exclusive DVD with Elaine Constantine being interviewed about the making of the film by actor James Lance who plays top Northern Soul DJ Ray Henderson in the film.
