To celebrate what would have been the 74th birthday of David Bowie, two previously unreleased cover versions John Lennon’s MOTHER and Bob Dylan’s TRYIN’ TO GET TO HEAVEN has been released as a very special limited edition 7” single.
Originally recorded by Lennon for his 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, Bowie’s version of MOTHER was produced by Tony Visconti in 1998 for a Lennon tribute that never came to fruition.
Bob Dylan’s original TRYIN’ TO GET TO HEAVEN was released on his 1997 Album of the Year GRAMMY winning Time Out Of Mind. David’s version was recorded in February 1998 during the mixing sessions for the live album ‘LiveAndWell.com’.
The record is limited to 8147 numbered copies, 1000 of which are on cream coloured vinyl purchasable via link. The remainder are black vinyl. Both tracks are also available to stream and download.
