5.0 out of 5 stars Uncredited rarities included!, 25 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best Of David Bowie 1969/1974 (Audio CD)
What the other excellent reviews neglect to point out, is that there are, in addition to the well known hits, three rarities on this album. For some unknown (and frankly lazy) reason, neither the album or sleeve notes make note of them. They are 'John, I'm Only Dancing' (Sax Version) which was recorded during the sessions for the 'Aladdin Sane' album, 'The Prettiest Star' (Single Version), which is the original 1970 single version that features Marc Bolan on lead guitar and finally, 'All The Young Dudes' (Studio Version) which is the original Bowie studio version from 1973.
The first two showed up on the 'Sound And Vision' box set and 'All the Young Dudes' was previously featured on the now rare and deleted 'RarestOneBowie' CD. In my opinion, their inclusion make this set even better than it first appears.
