This month's Q Magazine has a feature on the best 'Best Of...' albums of all time. They say :-
'The truly great, 'greatest hits' acts as a souvenir, CV, and 'good record'. Hard to do, but these twelve make it look easy.
David Bowie : The Singles Collection is chosen as one of the top twelve.
'The best thing about any Bowie compilation, no matter where you stick the pin in his career, is the sheer variety of stuff on offer.'
'Best Moment : The bit where he lets rip in Heroes, thus triggering producer Tony Visconti's staggered three microphone set up.'
Look out for next month's Q Magazine, which will be on sale from Oct 1st. There is likely to be a two page spread review of the Bowie At The Beeb album ,and also a compilation CD attached to the front of the magazine, Chill Out, which features 'quite the most pleasant 70 odd minutes of aural soothitude you've ever experienced'. There will be a db track included. Watch this space........
