Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

Format:Audio CD
When I found myself nursing a desire to really get to know David Bowie's music a good many years ago, Changesbowie was an obviously natural choice for me - one CD filled to the brim with 16 songs encompassing his entire career up to the point of the compilation album's release. Rather quickly after giving this disc a spin, I became a Bowie fan. Bowie has always gone his own way, evolving through some really quite weird metamorphoses over the years, but his music has always been consistently good. While I'm not that fond of the track John, I'm Only Dancing, I can honestly say that I enjoy the other 15 tracks almost equally. Space Oddity and Ziggy Stardust are as much fun to listen to as Bluejean and China Girl, and the consistency of the appeal of one man's music over such a long period of time strikes me as quite extraordinary. One should note that these songs cover a period of time between 1969 and the mid-1980s, although the version of the song Fame included here is a 1990 remix. This album offered the best of both worlds to me as a neophyte Bowie fan, combining the songs I was already familiar with from the 1980s (Fashion, Let's Dance, China Girl, Modern Love, Bluejean) with some of Bowie's powerful early material. While I hear some of these older classics on the radio from time to time these days, I was completely unfamiliar with them when I purchased this CD. I have yet to explore Bowie's early days in any great detail, so I cannot even speculate as to other songs that might have deserved a place on this album. All I know is that Changesbowie gave me a limited yet broadly impressive introduction to the work of a unique musical legend and will lead directly to my eventual purchases of albums from throughout Bowie's distinguished career. This compilation album remains the best introduction to the body of work Bowie produced in the first decade and a half of his still vibrant career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't live without it! September 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Bowie album. This man is a genius, and that's really all there is to say. Every song is a masterpiece, and he just keeps comming out with new ones. All I'd like to say is that he's great, and damn good looking for 52!

5.0 out of 5 stars Collection of Gems July 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
David Bowie has an amazing history behind him, and this album shows how he has evolved musically. The only way it could give more variety would be to include some of his work from the 60's, but the album is quite sufficient without it. I would have liked to see starman on it.
The album is simply a must for anyone. DB has gone through so many styles musically that there has to be something that any music fan will enjoy (though songs from my favorite "earthling" and "hours" aren't on here) and it serves as a wonderful introduction to DB. A person ignorant of DB's work might not even be able to tell that the same musical genius did every song on it.
Simply a great cd. Good for any music collection, and a wonderful intro to DB. Nothing else can communicate his vast talent and ability like this collection of his work over multiple decades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowie's carrier at a glance September 30, 2001
By Tracher
Format:Audio CD
Bowie's carrier has to be one of the most varied and most interesting in rock history. With so many album and so many different songs, making a compilation is not the easiest thing to do. But this 1990 edition called "Changesbowie" is done fairly good.
All the better and most important songs in Bowie's carrier are here, chronologically listed. There are all - time greats in the likes of "Space Oddity", "Rebel Rebel", "Golden Years" and the unforgettable "Heroes" and "Ashes to Ashes". Dance hits "Let's Dance", "China Girl" and "Blue Jean" round up this compilation (it's a shame "The Man Who Sold The World" is not in here).
If you're not planing on collecting all of David Bowie's albums, then this is a good choice for you. However, it's just a tip of the iceberg in Bowie's carrier. Even if you do plan on getting all of his albums, get this one first. It'll be a good starting point and it'll show the way Bowie changed his sound through out the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ziggy played guitar and much more.... December 15, 2000
By The Bas
Format:Audio CD
This great snippet of Bowie hits should give one a taste of what this genius did for the music of today. He is truly a part of rock and roll history, and I don't mean that in some sort of old farty way - this guy still rocks, and went through so many 'changes' as this CD depicts, yet he is still out there...
Enjoy his peak moments, and listen, and you will soon realize that his influence never really stopped. Can one 'dance the blues'? Who knows, but after tasting this music, one has to stop and ponder at what this guy really started...and it's good!
Buy this and take home some true rock history without feeling like you bought Buddy Holly or something that the mass market told you was 'rock and roll history'....

4.0 out of 5 stars Bowie's "Golden Years" Best Represented In This Hits Set February 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Rykodisc Records originally released "Changesbowie" in 1990 to take advantage of David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" world tour that year. The tour itself was to promote Bowie's catalogue being released on CD by the small, then-independent label.
Despite being docked one star for its pointless re-mix of the #1 hit "Fame," this Bowie hits collection remains the best career-spanning, one-disc retrospective of his career. Taken together, Bowie's stylistic ch-ch-ch-ch-changes form a template of 70s rock; "Rebel Rebel," "Suffragette City," and "Jean Genie" constantly shift and evolve while never edging closer to the listener. Even after nearly 30 years they remain cool, strange; lyrics vaguely out of reach with music updating the hybrid British soul ("Fashion," "Golden Years"), British blues ("Ziggy Stardust"), British music hall. Few other than Bowie could kidnap American music styles to match such free-flowing lyric imagery. Even with the personal, painful vignettes of "Young Americans," this remains among the least sensitive, least intimate music any solo performer has ever made (at least until Nile Rodgers comparatively warm but trademark style on 1983's huge hits "Let's Dance" and "China Girl.")
The exciting time of discovery between Bowie fans and the CD format has come and gone. Bowie shifted his copyrights to Virgin Records, re-released his catalogue on the original LP form (at full price), and removed the bonus tracks that made those Rykodisc sets a revelation. This import remains faithful to Ryko's original approach; it, and the other Bowie CDs Ryko released, are of better value than either the new Virgin releases or RCA Victor originals, worth picking up wherever available. "Changesbowie" was victim to record company changes, but remains David Bowie's essential compilation.
