David Bowie - Diamond Dogs [50th Anniversary Picture Disc & Half-Speed Master]


This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.


On 24th May, 2024, the exact day of its Golden Jubilee, Diamond Dogs will be reissued in two limited edition 50th anniversary formats.

50th Anniversary Picture Disc Vinyl.

50th Anniversary Half-Speed Master Vinyl. 


The writing of the album was influenced by Bowie not being able to secure the rights for a theatrical production of George Orwell’s 1984 and the work of William S. Burroughs, whom Bowie had interviewed for Rolling Stone in November 1973. The songs on the album created an urban apocalyptic scenario with Bowie appearing on the cover as a controversial half-man, half-dog hybrid painted by the Belgian artist Guy Peellaert from photos by the world-renowned photographer Terry O’Neill. 


These new pressings of Diamond Dogs were cut on a customised late Neumann VMS80 lathe with fully recapped electronics from 192kHz restored masters of the original master tapes, with no additional processing on transfer. The half-speed was cut by John Webber at AIR Studios.


• Available on limited edition 50th anniversary half-speed master and limited edition 50th anniversary picture disc, pressed from the same master as the half speed version.
