Import version of this superb ‘Best Of’ collection which was only available in the states for a limited time. 20 tracks including the classics you’d expect like ‘Golden Years’, ‘Young Americans’, ‘Fame’, ‘Sound And Vision’, ‘Look Back in Anger’ with relative obscurities like ‘It’s Hard to Be a Saint in the City’ and ‘John I’m Only Dancing (Again)’. An impressive, reasonably thorough overview of Bowie’s glam years. EMI.
