    Default best of bowie

    got this CD tonight, I can't stop listening to it. I think i've played it about 6 times in a row already. I'm not a huge Bowie fan. but this cd had all his biggest and best hits on it. and I got it for free. (sold a bunch of used CD's to the store for $140 in store credit).

    If you like David Bowie, this is a must have for fans.

    I own nearly every David Bowie album there is, including the greatest hits cd that I keep in the car. It is a good compilation. I have found over the years that with Bowie songs, I either love them or think they suck and except for Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars his albums all contain some real dogs and some outstanding tracks.

    Yeah got it myself. Awesome collection.You guys get the 2 disc version ? It's the only way to go.

    Almost all tracks are digitally remastered but disappointingly "underpressure" wasn't.

    Funny, when I went into Bestbuy, the rep didn't know who David Bowie was!!!

    Dangerboy,

    I probably lucked into it when i found the 2 disc copy because i don't see too many of them around ...at least not yet.
    I personally think the 2-disc version is worth it considering I don't have any of the Bowie albums and don't want to buy all of them especially when they all haven't been remastered.

    FYI, here's the track titles for each disc:

    Disc 1
    space oddity
    the man who sold the world
    changes
    life on mars
    moonage dream
    suffragette city
    ziggy stardust
    all the young dudes
    the jean genie
    panic in detroit
    rebel rebel
    diamond dogs
    young americans
    fame
    golden years
    tvc15
    sound and vision
    heroes
    d.j

    disc 2
    ashes to ashes
    fashion scary monsters
    under pressure
    cat people
    let's dance
    china girl
    modern love
    blue jean
    this is not America
    dancing in the street
    absolute beginners
    time will crawl
    under the god
    jump they say
    the heart's filthy lesson
    i'm afraid of americans
    thursday child
    slow burn

    Virtually every track is remastered ! Interesting to see the dvd version as well .

    damn, @%&)*(!$^& wish i could have bought the two disc one instead. it's got a few songs i would like to have. well, maybe I can sell this one to a friend and buy the two disc one if I can find it.
    yeah want to get the DVD too. Is that out already?

    Was driving around today.. listening to Bowie.. cranked up the Polks in the car and man the sound was kicking my butt. Love the remasters on this disc.

    favorite Bowie song.. hmmmm, either changes or rebel rebel, maybe even ashes to ashes, space oddity is good too. hell i like em all.
