Probably the most comprehensive anthology of any musical artist to date, the 47-track BEST OF BOWIE traces the guises of David Bowie over the last four decades. From the androgynous, glam rock rebel of the 1970s, to his more recent incarnation as the self-labelled, postmodern pop ironist of the 90s. The collection provides an added insight into wider developments in fashion, music and the pop video.
Most of the early material is taken from television music programmes such as The Old Grey
Whistle Test (Oh! You Pretty Things, Queen Bitch, and Five Years), however, as the demands of television and music promotion progress, Bowie ventures into more sophisticated stand-alone videos culminating in 1983's Let's Dance.
