DAVID BOWIE; Sound+Vision (4CD). Track listing shown here

David Bowie’s ‘Sound + Vision’ box set gets re-released in a slipcased fatpack with 64 page booklet.  This a collection spanning four decades, covering the 21 albums from Space Oddity through to Buddha Of Surburbia.  It’s a rich survey of David Bowie’s many musical lives offering a generous helping of hits, an intriguing dip into archives, classic album tracks and long lost B-sides, explosive live recordings, soundtrack recordings and remixes.

From Dylan inspired folkie (‘The Wild-Eyed Boy From Freecloud’) to the hard-rocking hero of grunge legends Nirvana (‘The Man Who Sold The World’); from Glam Rock superstar (‘Ziggy Stardust’) to white soul pioneer (‘Young Americans’); electronica trailblazer (‘Warszawa’) to first New Romantic (‘Ashes To Ashes’); dancefloor deity (‘Modern Love’) to high endurance 90s legend (‘Jump They Say’). He’s been there - and back again - often before anyone else has.
