David Bowie remains impossible to pigeonhole - first there was Ziggy Stardust, then Aladdin Sane, a White Soul Boy and a Thin White Duke. He went on to invent synth-pop with Tony Visconti and Brian Eno and then disappeared behind the make-up of Pierrot when the New Romantics mixed all of his eras together. And then, he became a truly global megastar in the 80s.
This collection contains four UK No. 1s, 15 Top 10s, six Top 20s and 14 Top 75 hits; 338 weeks of UK chart history. But David Bowie could never be contained by statistics alone: any collection that contains 'Starman', 'The Jean Genie', 'Fame', 'Heroes', ‘Sound and Vision’, 'Ashes To Ashes', 'Under Pressure and 'Let's Dance' spells it plainly – this is a collection of some of the greatest and best-known music of the 20th Century by one of its very finest performers.
