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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone 1 Oct 2014
By OMG! It's got a plug! TOP 100 REVIEWER
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 also an accompanying 56 page booklet with very lengthy sleeve notes and archive photos. It also includes all of the recording dates, release dates and musicians involved for each track. It might not be as up to date as the forthcoming 'Nothing Has Changed' compilation but it represents amazing value for money and should appeal to existing Bowie fans and newcomers too.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2014 Reissue... 23 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Incredible Shrinking Box Set... 13 Oct 2014
By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having been on the Bowie bus since 1972, and although not what I would call a 'nutty collector', I purchased this 2014 reissue of the Sound + Vision 4CD set because it is, frankly, a superb encapsulation of his nigh-on half a century of recording. As others have said, it's not a 'Greatest Hits', as other comps do that job more than adequately (and there's shortly to be yet another multi-format set, Nothing Has Changed), but rather a brave attempt to provide a panoramic sweep of his artistic achievements, beyond just the world of chart listings and platinum disc awards. It's essentially the EMI Sound + Vision box set of 2003, but reduced to the size of a CD. There are hits such as 'Sorrow', 'Boys Keep Swinging', 'Drive In Saturday', for example, but there are live tracks, outtakes and even some Tin Machine stuff for all you Bowie masochists out there, but even those tracks, taken in the context of a still-unfolding career (at something much slower than the glory years, of course) enrich and add more contrast to the fine musical fare within. retailing at just over fifteen pounds, it's a good investment for those who'd like to dig deeper in the Bowieverse.

First up, this is a superb collection by anybody's standards & is well worth the 5 stars.
The biggest worry with this is the old chestnut "Caveat Emptor" because there are at least 4 different editions of this set.
First up, we have the original Ryko edition on 3 regular CD's plus an additional CDV with 3 live tracks & the "Ashes to Ashes" video. This was packaged in a 12" x 12" box and included a nice booklet (sadly mine is missing & if anyone has a mint or near mint copy of this set please contact me). NB - the images on this page are from that edition.
Then there was a very limted edition of this in a nice wood case, 500 copies, individually signed (these are almost never found for sale). Third up was the Ryko reissue edition in a slipcase box with just 3 CD's, missing off the 3 live tracks from Boston Music Hall in 1972 (and oh, how I would love the full recording of that to surface) and a well done 72-page booklet.
Finally, we have the 4th edition, which is a re-issue from EMI, featuring 4 CD's, a different running order and on some tracks different versions (and I mean different mixes as opposed to remastered) - although if truth be told, this set does have the 1999 EMI remasters and they are frankly not that great - over limited for volume, as are nearly all the EMI editions esxcept for the first set they released which used the Ryko masters - confused? Yep. Me too.

Whatever edition you have this makes a nice change to the obvious singles rehash - and the Gods only know that has been done often enough already.
If you are looking for the S&V box, get the early Ryko edition for sound quality & the EMI edition for tracks you will not find anywhere else.
