Following hot on the stack heels of "Rock 'N' Roll Suicide" and "1984" being released for Record Store Day, June 17 brings another very special limited David Bowie 7" picture disc release, the 40th anniversary edition of DIAMOND DOGS.
Originally released in June 1974, DIAMOND DOGS was the second single to be taken from the album of the same name with "Rebel Rebel" being the first. The ground BREAKing six minute track was originally backed by the re-recording of "Holy Holy". For its fortieth anniversary it will be a double A side with the "David Live - 2005 mix" by Tony Visconti making its vinyl debut.
