As if the flood of compilations called Best of Bowie in 2002 weren't confusing enough – there was a different track listing for each territory around the world, all bearing the same name and album cover – in 2004, a double-disc version of Best of Bowie was released in U.S., which was different than the "bonus CD" edition released in North America in 2002. It's not too different – a slightly different sequencing, it's a track longer, it has a couple different songs (and there's an edition with a bonus CD containing remixes) – but even if the details are slightly different, the overall gist remains: this is an excellent double-disc overview of Bowie's '70s and '80s peak.
Rare and exclusive versions of 18 classic David Bowie songs. This one is for Joe Strummer, Mickey Finn, Maurice Gibb & Penny Valentine. Given away free with Uncut Magazine #3, 2003. So whaddya know? Turns out I do have some Culture Club in my house. More surprisingly, it's a good song. Madame George's "Starman" is just one example of what turns out to be a better album than I remembered it to be. Sure, there are too many different styles trying to fight it out for one album, but taken piecemeal, it's a good listen. There are some duds, no doubt: Midge Ure's contribution is a tad too Marilyn Manson-1985 for me, and nobody should ever, by law, be allowed to cover "Heroes", something Blondie should have had the humility to know.
Ornette Coleman's epic 1959 LPs The Shape of Jazz to Come and Change of the Century were pivot points in modern post-bop jazz and early creative music. This recording is a prelude to those epics, a live two-night engagement in October of 1958 at the Hillcrest Club in Los Angeles. The Coleman quintet, with trumpeter Don Cherry, bassist Charlie Haden, and drummer Billy Higgins, plus a then-young pianist Paul Bley, sets up that new shape of jazz. This eight-selection set features three of Coleman's signature originals, two standards, and three lesser-known, fairly rare pieces that Coleman did at the time.
Jeff Beck is no stranger to Friday Music. We continue to strive to bring the fans his greatest music ever recorded in both 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl and now on remastered compact disc collectors editions…..Jeff Beck Live At B.B. King Blues Club is such a wonderful performance, and this unique session fortunately was captured at this intimate setting. Hearing the Guitar Shop trio once again is a thrilling event to behold as you hear shredder delights like Angel, People Get Ready, Goodbye Pork Pie Hat, material from Blow By Blow, There And Back…..he plays them all. SHREDDERS UNITE!
Polydor wised up with this 1997 expanded version of their 1990 set, The Very Best of the Bee Gees, in that they took the collection and added nine tracks (from 12 to 21), intensifying the study of the impressive depth and breadth of the Bee Gees catalog. The collection runs chronologically from the group's late-'60s folk-pop period through their legendary disco contributions, thus tracing the arc of the Gibbs brothers' diverse career via their influence on pop culture and vice versa. The collection is then topped off by two late-'80s cuts that sit alongside the collection remarkably well and serve as a reminder that the Bee Gees were much more than the definition of disco, but continued to write some great songs regardless of production or arrangement.
This is an electrical and fantastic soundtrack of the wonderful fantasy movie of 1986, starring Jennifer Connoly and DAvid Bowie, Labyrinth. From start to finish it is electrical and rich in fantasty rock and some electronic instrumental music too. This album includes the beautiful song of loneliness and hope, Underground, the catchy and super Magic Dance, the fun and cheeky Chilly Down, the gentle As The Wall Falls Down and the romantic Within You. This album was proof that Bowie was still one of the greatest talents of the musical world by 1986, and had lost none of his ability to create beautiful and enchanting music.
Essential: a masterpiece of rock music
WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAM
Deeply inspired by the rise and fall of Vince Taylor (whom Bowie incidentally met in 1971). David/Ziggy will mix this story with science-fiction themes, the atmosphere of the star rock system mixing the whole stuff with his androgynous look. Ziggy will appear as such on stage. Intelligent glam rock? Probably.
BOWIE - LEGACY will be released via Parlophone in November. The album collects together a selection of Bowie’s most popular tracks and singles, from 1969’s ‘Space Oddity’, through to the final singles ‘Lazarus’ and ‘I Can’t Give Everything Away’, issued earlier this year. BOWIE - LEGACY will be available as a 1 CD and a Deluxe 2 CD from November 11th. These will be followed by a double vinyl album version on January 6th, 2017. All formats of BOWIE - LEGACY feature a previously unreleased version of the classic 1971 Hunky Dory track, ‘Life On Mars?’, remixed by its original producer Ken Scott. From his very first recordings over fifty years ago, right through to his last album Blackstar, David Bowie was at the vanguard of contemporary culture as a musician, artist, icon and a constant influence on generations of writers, artists and designers. He was, and remains, a unique presence in contemporary culture. Bowie left a legacy of inspiration in every discipline from art and fashion to acting and beyond. But, it is for his ground-breaking music that he will be best remembered. BOWIE - LEGACY is an introduction to a world of incredible music, just waiting to be enjoyed by a whole new generation.
