David Bowie – Legacy

Bowie is a genius. His music is brilliant. Most people acknowledge that already so i’m not David_Bowie_Bowie_Legacy_Album_Coverdoing a review, but as a casual-ish Bowie fan I have been on the lookout for a greatest hits compilation for a while and finally got around to picking one up. However I suffered from a typical problem with picking a collection, particularly when the artist has such an extensive back catalogue.  There is always one or two tracks that are inexplicably  missing. The 2 Disc version of Legacy is pretty comprehensive but for me the stark omission is Suffragette City. I guess they had to cull something but it is a brilliant track and as the track listing runs chronologically it was easy to slip in from another collection. Although I don’t mind new mixes when it comes to a greatest hits I want original version’s and although Life On Mars is good alternative version I just had to replace it with the original. Now I have the ultimate Bowie collection and it sounds great! Which greatest hits have you had to “upgrade”?

Standout track : Oh, come on…..seriously, you weren’t really expecting me to pick one?

  1. No Suffragette City? That is shocking. I don’t think I could pick a favourite out of all this tracks either. I do listen to his individual albums too, so I have favourite Bowie albums rather than songs.
