A beautiful copy of the very rare signed, limited edition David Bowie Sound+Vision wooden box set, available only by mail order from Ryko in 1989. This is #10 of only 350 produced (and a desirable early, round number.)
This version was packaged in a deluxe hinged basswood and birch wood hinged box, with portrait of David Bowie silkscreened on plexiglass, 3 CD’s, one CD Video, a David Bowie signed and numbered certificate, and a 72 page booklet.
Wikipedia notes the Sound + Vision box “was originally conceived in 1989 as a career retrospective that would serve as a “teaser” for the then-upcoming Rykodisc CD reissue campaign covering Bowie’s output from 1969 to 1980. It contains few of Bowie’s greatest hits in their original form, instead frequently opting for demos, live versions and even a German vocal version of “Heroes” (“Helden”). The “rarities” originally included on the 1989 edition of Sound + Vision (the rare single versions of “Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud” and “Rebel Rebel,” and the previously unreleased studio outtakes “London Bye Ta–Ta,” “1984/Dodo,” “After Today,” or “It’s Hard To Be A Saint in the City”) were exclusive to this box set.” The regular edition of the Sound + Vision box set won the 1990 Grammy Award for Best Album Package.
This is the only example we’ve had of this highly sought after Bowie rarity, and is in excellent condition, with a bit of very light scuffing to box, and a faint crease to bottom left corner of certificate. With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
