It's everything you hoped it could be, the genesis of Hunky Dory - one of the greatest albums of all time.

Box Set Overview

Parlophone Records proudly announces David Bowie Divine Symmetry, a four-CD, one blu-ray box set. This collection celebrates the twelve months running up to the release of the album Hunky Dory in December 1971 via home demos, BBC radio sessions and live and studio recordings.

Divine Symmetry contains 48 previously unreleased tracks/demos from the period, and new alternative mixes of Hunky Dory tracks by original co-producer Ken Scott.

Two books accompany Divine Symmetry, a 100-page hardback book featuring exclusive memorabilia and photos alongside a 60-page replica composite of Bowie’s notebooks from the era featuring handwritten lyrics, costume drawings, recording notes and set lists. The sleeve notes have been written for the release by Bowie expert Tris Penna, along with contributions from Hunky Dory co-producer Ken Scott, lifelong Bowie friends Geoff MacCormack and George Underwood, singer Dana Gillespie, guitarist Mark Pritchett, Friars Aylesbury promoter David Stopps, publisher Bob Grace and photographer Louanne Richards.

1971 was a pivotal year for Bowie. He signed a record deal with RCA, he met Andy Warhol, Lou Reed, and Iggy Pop while in New York, became a father and penned the song Kooks as a show of paternal pride, played live for the first time that June with Mick Ronson, Woody Woodmansey and Trevor Bolder, the band that would later be christened the Spiders From Mars and recorded the
classic album Hunky Dory.
