Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

THIS IS NOT THE CANADIAN BOX SET THAT THE PREVIOUS REVIEWER STATES. That being the 1990 Ryko-disc set. Similar but not the same!!!!. This box set incorporates Bowie's work up to Buddah Of Suburbia and Black Tie White Noise. There are even Tin Machine songs on here!!!!!!!

It has strayed away from the well known hits, though there are still many here, such as "Ashes to Ashes", "Changes" and "Blue Jean". Instead it concentrates on the best album cuts from Bowie's phenomenal 70's 80's and early 90's work.

For CD completists, this is the only place you will find "After Today" "Baals Hymn", "The Drowned Girl" and "Modern Love" (live). There are also a handful of mixes and different out-takes of songs. The real highlights here is the original "The Prettiest Star". This is NOT the Aladdin Sane cut but the 1970 single with Marc Bolan on guitar. And "Pallas Athena". This is the live version performed by The Tao Jones Index, which was a secret gig Bowie did at The Phoenix Festival.

This is a must for any Bowie fan and an excellent starting point for any musical youth wishing to know what all the fuss was about when Bowie hit the scene.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Oct 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What a superb overview of this chameleon of rock!! I love it. I remember when it originally came out it came in a tall box which looked great but lacked the extra material this incredible value for money collection offers.

This journey starts with the demo for Space Oddity and weaves its way right up to the soundtrack album Dave did for the tv show The Buddha of Suburbia. On the way we are graced with some rarities that are not to be found anywhere else/easily/legally such as a couple of tracks from another tv show about that snaggle toothed outsider Baal. The best, and for me the cherry on the top, rare track is the inclusion of the mighty, muscular and testosterone imbued version of Cat People(a song which was disgracefully neutered during its transition towards it's limp appearance on the Let's Dance album). This Gorgio Moroder produced version is a gem. I bought it as a single many years ago and was disappointed that it never appeared on any of Bowies albums when they were reissued on cd.

Some good solid tracks from the badly received Tin Machine albums in here too, to give a broader look at Bowies work.

I remember being totally non-plussed by his Black Tie White Noise album when it appeared, but I reckon I am going to have to go and give it another chance based on what I have heard here.

Sonically superb. No brick walling issues here, unlike the Next Day album.

70 tracks of magnificent Bowie at this price?? A no brainer really. Buy it!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a very welcome reissue of this superb chronological overview of Bowie's career between 1969 and 1993. Hits, outtakes, live tracks, alternate versions, album tracks and Tin Machine too - there's something for everyone. It's also excellent value: 70 tracks across 4 CDs with a playback time of 4 hours and 58 minutes (and AutoRip if purchased direct from Amazon). The CDs are housed inside an old style double CD jewel case with a cardboard slipcase cover. There's an accompanying 56 page booklet with very lengthy sleeve notes and archive photos, including the recording dates, release dates and featured musicians for each song. It might not be as up to date as the forthcoming 'Nothing Has Changed' compilation but it represents amazing value for money and it should appeal to existing Bowie fans given that it's NOT just a straightforward 'Best of' box set.

Great value for money compilation. Only let down is the booklet which contains Bowie's history as a recording artist up until 2003. Seems a bit cheap not to update the booklet to include information on recent releases. Comes in plastic double CD case in thin card sleeve.

Lots of familiar material, lots of rarities, B-Sides and Live tracks. Would have been nice to have no Tin Machine and more of the post 2003 material. It's on Parlophone too which was a surprise. Comes with Auto Rip which is added value.
