Product Description

Though one of rock's most influential figures, David Bowie's accomplishments are pocked by some distinct ironies. His willful efforts at being a musical and visual chameleon spurred triumphs in genres as diverse as folk, glam, new wave, and electronica. Given the dizzying range and success of his '70s incarnations--from Ziggy to the Thin White Duke to the gaunt, goth-cypher of Low and Heroes -he seemed the artist most well-equipped to weather the changing tides of taste and trend, which he did with the unprecedented success he saw in the 80’s with the release of Let’s Dance.

This two CD compilation delves deeper into the Bowie catalog, delivering not only an artistically dizzying slate of hits, but also a number of tracks that truly encompass the depth and breadth of this shape-shifting artist.  From evocative cabaret ("Space Oddity," "Changes") through muscular glam-rock ("Suffragette City," "The Jean Genie") to R&B ("Young Americans," "Fame") and post-punk flirtations ("Ashes to Ashes," "Fashion") to the dance-club hits ("Let's Dance," "China Girl," "Modern Love") and '80s one-off duets ("Under Pressure" with Queen, "Dancing in the Streets" with Mick Jagger), all of Bowie's signature hits are here.
