Two rare, previously unreleased David Bowie albums will go on sale this April, which will delight fans of the late singer.

Newsweek reports the albums will go on sale on April 22. One is a live album from the Philly Dogs Tour, called Cracked Actor (Live in Los Angeles 1974). It features Luther Vandross on vocals, and it was mixed by Tony Visconti, who had his hand in producing some of Bowie’s best tracks (including “Heroes”).

The other record is Bowpromo, which is essentially alternate mixes of songs from Hunky Dory. The record was initially pressed in a limited run in 1971. Originally, there were only 500 copies made of Bowpromo, which were mainly used by Bowie’s manager Tony Defries to try and secure new record deals. The Record Store Day recreation, admittedly not one of the prized 500 copies, will come with the added bonus of five exclusive Bowie prints and new sleeve notes, all in a “special presentation box.”

Check out the tracklist for both albums below:
