"Rebel Rebel," is the 7th 40th anniversary 7" picture disc release preceded by "Starman, " "John I m Only Dancing, " "The Jean Genie, " "Drive In Saturday, " "Life On Mars, " and "Sorrow. "
Originally released in February 1974, "Rebel Rebel" was Bowie's first new original single since disbanding The Spiders From Mars and acted as a taster for the groundbreaking album Diamond Dogs. The track reached #5 in the UK and also hit the US Billboard Hot 100.
The A-side of the limited edition 7" picture disc features the original single mix of the track which hasn't been available on 7" since the early 80's and is still unavailable on CD to this day.
The AA-side has the US Version of "Rebel Rebel" performed entirely by Bowie himself (with Geoff MacCormack supplying congas), this radically different version of the song was released in May 1974 three months after the first issue, but only in the US, Canada and Mexico.
The artwork for the picture disc features two shots from a session that took place in Amsterdam at the television show Top Pop in February 1974.
