Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1975) is a vinyl box set by British rock musician David Bowie, released in September 2016 via Parlophone Records.

A sequel to the 2015 box Five Years 1969-1973, 2016's Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) covers just three years but this stretch in the mid-'70s happens to be the peak of David Bowie's superstardom.

That much can be gleaned from the number of albums within the set: three studio albums - Diamond Dogs, Young Americans, Station To Station, each released in a subsequent year - along with the double live album David Live from 1974.

Four albums in three years is plenty but to that core canon Who Can I Be Now? adds five additional alternate albums, each with varying degrees of rarities. There are full latter-day remixes of David Live and Station To Station - the former from 2005, the latter from 2010 - the concert album Live Nassau Coliseum '76, a bonus disc of single edits and stray songs entitled Re:Call 2, plus an early version of Young Americans called The Gouster, which contains "Who Can I Be Now?" and "It's Gonna Be Me", along with alternate versions of "Can You Hear Me?" and "Right," plus the disco version of "John, I'm Only Dancing".

The Who Can I Be Now? box set is as beautifully produced as Five Years, and a deep dive into its contents produces many rewards. Perhaps the alternate album mixes are only slightly different, but it's hard not to be impressed by the rapid development of Bowie's music during these three years. The distance between Diamond Dogs and Station To Station is vast, and the addition of the live albums accentuates how deeply he cared for strong, deeply etched funk to offset his art. Listening to all this music in a concentrated blast, such progression is a wonder to behold.

Check out the tracks: Rebel Rebel; “Young Americans”; "Fame" and “Golden Years”.

This Box Set contains 9 albums comprising 13 LPs with Remastered Audio, with reproduced original artwork and a hardcover book of period photos, reviews and studio notes. The set is pressed in Europe on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl.
