Overview

Best of Bowie [Bonus CD]

Yes, there have been numerous collections chronicling the career of rock's greatest chameleon, but seldom has one cut to the chase as effectively as this set, which presents pristinely remastered, punched up versions of Bowie's personal Top 20. Kicking off with his earliest forays into post-cabaret acoustic rock (like the still-mystical "Space Oddity"), the album skips off the waves of glitter that he surfed on "Suffragette City" and "The Jean Genie" as well as the streets of Philadelphia, which inspired the soul-flaked "Fame" and "Young Americans." While some eras -- like the dark, moody Low period -- are under-represented, Bowie's forays into post-punk ("Fashion") and dance culture ("Let's Dance," presented here in the single version, which omits Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar solo) are explored fully. This two-disc set connects the dots of Bowie's musical outlines a bit more boldly than its single-disc companion, particularly in chronicling the harder edge of his glam period (in songs like "Panic in Detroit") and the bracing experimentalism of the past decade ("This Is Not America" and "Under the God," for instance). A triumph of pairing style with substance, David Bowie's best still sounds fresh.

I love this CD, one of the best especially for the car! David Bowie was such a great talent. There are a couple really great songs missing, but otherwise this is perfect for any Bowie fan!

No question that the most popular items are here. I would have preferred to substitute the pop-ish Dancing in the Streets with Lady Grinning Soul from Aladdin Sane, as it's a much better composition - and a bit of a divergance for Bowie - plus, if you'd like to see an excellent rendition of This is Not America, get a hold of the Pat Methany DVD, We Live Here - Live in Japan - its beautiful.

My husband has all the Bowie CDs ever released, but I wanted one for my car that had the top hits. This CD filled the bill for me. We recently saw Bowie in concert in Los Angeles and he rocked the house. There are a few songs missing, but otherwise this CD is excellent!
