David Bowie’s First Ever Best-Of Compilation Re-Released

David Bowie Aladdin Sane

To celebrate forty years since the great David Bowie’s first ever best-of compilation Warner Music Australia has re-released ‘Changesonebowie’.

The famous album will include songs from 1969 to 1976, the year ‘Changesonebowie’ was first released. To mark the anniversary the album is being reissued on 180g-heavyweight vinyl, cd, and has been re-mastered for digital formats. Half of all the vinyl will be pressed on black vinyl while the other half will be pressed on clear vinyl, this will not be mentioned on the sleeve so it will be a complete surprise as to which one you receive.

This record is an important landmark in the late Bowies career, the original appeared in May of 1976, four years removed from his ‘Ziggy Stardust’ UK breakthrough. Soon after Bowie would pack up shop for Berlin and reinvent himself as more of an electronic rocker. Despite coming so early in Bowies unparalleled career it features a number of his greats from the folk ‘Space Oddity’ to the more heavy rock songs like ‘Ziggy Stardust’. The album also includes the single ‘John, I’m Only Dancing’ which never featured on a Bowie LP. This body of work provides an insight into Bowie at the peak of his rock stardom and acts as an incredible introduction into his work. Despite not telling quite the full story of the man who went on to achieve so much more, it still captures Bowie’s raw talent and flair. After his untimely death this record has come back round to remind us all what we are missing.
