Parlophone Records have announced the third in a series of six very special David Bowie live releases from the 90s that will be released on CD and vinyl over the coming months.

The suitably-titled “LIVEANDWELL.COM” (yes, it’s intentionally-capitalised) references the Thin White Duke’s some might say, soothsayer-like obsession with the quaint old concept of “the information superhighway.” Previously released in 2000 in limited quantities to BowieNet subscribers, the LP has been expanded to include two bonus tracks – “Pallas Athena” and “V-2 Schneider” – to help stretch it across four sides.

The set was recorded in New York, Amsterdam and Rio De Janeiro during the 1997 Earthling tour. Its first 10 tracks have until now been physically available only on the BowieNet release, while the two bonus tracks were released as a 12” single under the name The Tao Jones Index (the alias Bowie and his band employed to play an unannounced set in the dance tent at the Phoenix Festival in England in 1997).

The new, limited edition vinyl edition of LIVEANDWELL.COM comes in newly-designed artwork featuring a cover shot of Bowie taken by Scarlet Page during rehearsals for the June 1997 London Hanover Grand shows. The album marks the third of six releases that will comprise the “Brilliant Live Adventures” set, with the first two releases being “David Bowie Ouvrez Le Chien (Live Dallas 95)”, and “No Trendy Réchauffé (Live Birmingham 95)”.

Produced by David Bowie, co-produced by Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati, the musicians featured include Zachary Alford (drums), Gail Ann Dorsey (bass, vocals, keyboards), Reeves Gabrels (guitars, synthesisers, vocals) and Mike Garson (piano, keyboards, synthesisers).
