7CD Box Set Explores Iggy Pop's Berlin-Era Collaborations with David Bowie and features Remastered Versions of The Idiot, Lust For Life, and Live Release TV Eye Plus Disc of Rarities & Alternative Mixes, Three Discs of March 1977 Concert Recordings & 40-Page Book!

The new 7CD box set The Bowie Years explores Iggy Pop's Berlin-era albums and features remastered versions of The Idiot, Lust For Life, and live release TV Eye plus a disc of rare outtakes and alternate mixes, and three discs of live recordings. The Bowie Years provides a fascinating insight into the unique creative alchemy that defined the mythical Berlin-era of post punk, and set the wheels in motion for a sound that went on to dominate the world, shaping popular culture for decades to come. The Idiot and Lust For Life remain two of the most influential albums ever made and still stand as towering behemoths in rock's upper echelons, their sonic DNA and attitude continuing to influence and inspire new generations of artists to this day.

Following the demise of Iggy's seminal proto-punk band The Stooges, and a stint on the road together, Iggy and Bowie moved to West Berlin in 1977 to start work on Iggy's debut solo album. Inspired by the Cold War era surroundings, and named after Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, The Idiot saw Iggy moving away from the guitar heavy punk of The Stooges (and the ubiquitous sound of the era), bringing electronics textures and brooding darkness to the fore. The album was a critical and commercial success, spawning the hits "China Girl," "Nightclubbing," "Funtime" and "Sister Midnight." On a creative roll, the duo were back in the studio a matter of weeks after the accompanying tour to promote The Idiot, recording Iggy's sophomore solo album Lust For Life. Bringing a rawer rock'n'roll feel back to the fore, Lust For Life spawned two of Iggy's biggest hits, the titular track and the anthemic "The Passenger."

Alongside these two albums, included in the box is a remastered version of the live album TV Eye recorded during the 1977 tour in Cleveland, Chicago and Kansas City and featuring Bowie on keyboards. There are also three discs of live recordings from March 1977 officially released for the first time – Live at The Rainbow Theatre, London, Live at The Agora, Cleveland and Live at Mantra Studio, Chicago. The essential set is rounded out with a 40-page booklet with contributions from the musicians who played on the records and famous fans discussing the influence the albums have had on them.
