Remastered 40th Anniversary Edition of Bowie's Greatest Hits
May 20, 2016 is 40 years to the day that David Bowie's first ever best-of compilation, including songs from 1969 to 1976, ChangesOneBowie was released. The album is being reissued on remastered 180-gram heavyweight vinyl to mark this anniversary.
David Bowie's first official compilation album, released in the wake of Station to Station and sharing that album's odd typography, Changesonebowie is a handy one-stop roundup of four years of hits, plus "Space Oddity" — an American smash in 1973, but unavailable on a U.K. single since its first appearance in 1969. It soared to the top of the British chart, dragging Changesone with it — the album eventually peaked at No. 2. The album's main charm for confirmed fans was the inclusion of "John, I'm Only Dancing." Never previously included on LP, the song was also making its American debut here.
