  • Although numerous David Bowie compilations have been released over the years, the three-disc PLATINUM COLLECTION is one of the most thorough overviews of the famously mercurial performer, spanning the years 1969 to 1987. While the first two discs here were previously available individually (covering '69-74 and '74-79, respectively), the third disc marks the debut of the '80-87 retrospective, a wildly eclectic offering that includes revered classics (the restless "Space Oddity" sequel, "Ashes to Ashes," and the pulsing "Fashion"), massive hits (the inescapable "Let's Dance" and the Queen collaboration "Under Pressure"), and rarities (the haunting Brecht/Weill number "Alabama Song" and the chiming "Underground," from the fantasy film LABYRINTH). This 57-track collection is ideal for those wanting to dive deeper than Bowie's celebrated singles. It's also a nice reminder of his avoidance of musical complacency and his insistence on pushing the boundaries of pop music.
Professional Reviews
Melody Maker (11/8/97, p.50) - "...retrospective of the weird and wired world of early David Bowie....in the space of a few years he laid down a sonic and ideological blueprint that so many bands have since pilfered."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[S]ticking mainly to the big singles and classics....Packing in an impressive 57 tracks...it gives huge value..."

Mojo (Publisher) (2/02, p.84) - "...This neat compilation has manifest merits....an ideal point of entry..."
