Ok, for the record, I am huge Bowie fan, but as far as I can see the only reason for buying this is the DVD which includes videos which did not appear on the Best of Bowie DVD. As most fans know, the 80s were a mixed period for Bowie starting with the last of his RCA albums, Scary Monsters which included 2 huge singles and 2 minor hits. Alas artistically, if not commercialy, this was to be the last good Bowie album for a number of years.
Then came Let's Dance, that sold by the bucket load, which catapulted Bowie into a huge mainstream artist, something he had not was not used to. He tried to repeat the formula with Tonight and Never Let Me Down (Generally regarded by fans, and himself, as his worst album). This album contains the 4 singles from Scary Monsters, 3 from Lets Dance, 2 each from the other albums, various songs from soundtracks and collaborations, and a couple of oddities. I am assuming the CD is the same as the one in the The Platinum Collection although Amazon lists it with having one less track (This is not America is missing off there track listing). So if you own the The Platinum Collection you already have a copy of all tracks, and if you are a fan rather than a casual listener then chances are you have all theses many times over. So is it worth paying [...]for the DVD?.
Most of the songs on he DVD are included on Best of Bowie DVD, so if you own that then you are basically paying for 3 Videos. I remember in the 80 paying [...] for the Video EP containing the 3 singles from the Lets dance album so I guess [...] aint that bad. Its a shame that the 1980 Space Oddity track and Video could not have been included, that would have got it another star.
Will be interesting to see if they re release The Best of David Bowie 1969-1974 and The Best of David Bowie 1975-1979 with a DVD and what (if any) unreleased videos are included (There's a Promo for Ziggy which has not yet appeared on DVD).
