All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
VH1's sadly short-lived series Storytellers was ideal for an old charmer like David Bowie, giving him an intimate platform to spin stories both old and new. When he appeared on the show on August 23, 1999, he was a few months away from releasing Hours..., an album where he comfortably came to terms with his past, so it fits that he's looking back fondly here, telling stories about the Mannish Boys and Iggy Pop, sliding the new tunes "Thursday's Child" and "Seven" in between "Life on Mars?" and "Drive-In Saturday," plus "Can't Help Thinking About Me," a single he released with the Lower Third in 1965. These are all good, relaxed, unplugged readings, but the chief...

These are all good, relaxed, unplugged readings, but the chief attraction of VH1 Storytellers is, appropriately enough, those stories Bowie tells, as they not only offer a glimpse into the creation of these songs, they do what great stories should do: they entertain. [VH1 Storytellers is available as a CD/DVD package, with the CD containing a mere eight songs and the DVD containing a full program of 12 tunes, adding "Always Crashing in the Same Car" and Tin Machine's "I Can't Read" into the mix.]

    Great CD and DVD - But leaves you wishing for more

    Let me start with a full disclosure ... I've been a diehard Bowie fan since I was 5. Now 35+ years later, the love is still there, as well as the need to purchase anything Bowie that comes out.

    I remember seeing the original Bowie Storytellers when it first aired on VH1. I was thrilled when the DVD and CD were finally released. Bowie is relaxed, informal and shows his sharp sense of humor throughout the set. The performances are, of course, excellent. I still love this version of China Girl. The piano intro is priceless.

    My only complaint, and this is as a forever fan, it makes me wish the entire performance was on the DVD, not just an edited "best of." I guess it's a compliment to Bowie and Storytellers that this DVD leaves you wanting more. But I still want ... more!
