2018 Remastered Version Culled from the David Bowie: Loving the Alien (1983-1988) Box Set!
Select stand-alone albums from 2018's David Bowie: Loving the Alien (1983-1988) box set will be issued on vinyl LP by Rhino/Parlophone in February 2019 including remastered versions of the three studio efforts, Let's Dance (1983), Tonight (1984) and Never Let Me Down (1987).
Bowie's first release for EMI, Let's Dance would in short order become the most commercially successful album of his career – selling some 7 million copies worldwide as its title track went to No. 1 in more than half a dozen countries, followed by two more global top 10 hits with "Modern Love" and the Bowie version of "China Girl," co-composed with Iggy Pop, whose version was originally released on 1977's The Idiot.
Produced by Nile Rodgers and featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan on guitar atop rhythms provided by the likes of Bernard Edwards, Omar Hakim and Tony Thompson, Let's Dance was much more than a global hit – the repercussions of its melding of rich fluid blues/rock guitar, rock solid funk grooves and irresistible vocal hooks were instantly evident on the likes of Duran Duran, and are still being felt as recently as the new millennial proliferation of acts like The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem.
