Fifty-Two Years: The Complete Singles (2016)

52-768x768
Seriously… It Just Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This!

PRODUCER’S NOTES:
Fifty-Two Years: The Complete Singles includes both sides of every single – all in their original mixes/edits – that David Bowie released in his five decade long career. As the music industry moved away from 7? 45s in the ’90s and ’00s, and toward CD/EPs, 12? dance mixes and downloads, every effort was made here to keep with the original singles concept. So some of these other formats are included if there were unique versions, and it appeared that The Thin White Duke had intended it to be a stand alone release (or to promote a new album). Each of his forays into different genres/personas are fully documented here, with artwork. These 12 volumes are arranged chronologically, but are also designed to highlight different periods in his career. I invite you to explore all of them, especially those that might not be familiar with his body of work. Finally, thanks to 96dbFreak and to our small community for your contributions. – Frank Blank

Är nog den artist som haft mest påverkan på mode och musik under sjuttiotalet och åttiotalet. Vem minns inte hans album, hans alter egos och det teatraliska både på skiva och på scen. Finns mycket att lyssna på som är bra, från sjuttiotalet fram till hans sista studio album som är Reality. Jag såg honom senast 2004, under reality turnén. Vad vi inte visste så, var att troligen var detta hans sista stora turné. Bandet var tajt, Bowie var avspänd och gav oss sin bästa musik i den mest intressanta form.
