BEST OF BOWIE
Cat no: 539 8222 / 539 8232
EMI are proud to release the Best Of Bowie on 21st October 2002. A double CD, the Best Of is the first time all of David Bowie's greatest hits and best loved songs have been available together. An authoritative collection for fans old and new, the Best Of is a natural successor and complement to earlier Greatest Hits compilations which only featured tracks from 1969 -'74, and 1974 -'79, reinforcing his status as the cultural catalyst for the 70's just as the Beatles were to the 60's.
Upon compiling a tracklist for global release, it became quickly apparent however, there were localised discrepancies in what constituted a definitive Best Of collection. As a consequence, and in a remarkable initiative, each territory was able to compile it's own unique tracklisting. As a result, there will be 16 bespoke albums, not all of them doubles, and not including the UK version. Tracklisting details will be announced shortly, please check www.davidbowie.com
A Best Of Bowie DVD will be released on 4th November featuring videos, rare tv appearances and previously unseen footage.
The Best Of Bowie is a career encompassing helicopter ride over one of the most prolific and perennially avant-garde artists of our times.
