Bowie DVD & Video
|Singer, musician, painter and
actor David Bowie was born David Robert Jones, 8 January 1947 in Brixton
district of London, England. He began performing music when he was 13 years
old, influenced by the jazz music of the time. After a series of underrated
singles, he began his successful career with Space Oddity and became known
throughout England. His most famous incarnation as Ziggy Stardust and his
backing band the Spiders From Mars made Bowie an international star and
the leading rock and roll group of the seventies. During these years, David
Bowie repeatedly wowed and scandalized public opinion with his eccentric
antics, his bisexuality and his relationships. David Bowie was an indispensable
voice of the 70s, pursuing a rare compositional and emotional balance as
he adopted a variety of guises and experimented with different styles of
music. His unparalleled transformation ability, style-forming ideas and
safe instinct for musical trends made him the idol of whole generations
and the role model of countless musicians. Only few rockers ever had such
lasting impact. During the 80s and 90s, however, Bowie adopted a more straightforward
pop approach with less satisfying results. There's no denying that Bowie
demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak.
Each one of his phases and transformations in the '70s sparked a number
of new musical sub genres including punk, electronica, new wave & goth-rock.

|The Berlin period soundtrack
This is the soundtrack for
a German film of the same name; a film soaked in filth, depression, addiction,
and prostitution. No black humor--it's the Anti-Trainspotting. But the
music is upbeat; at times rocking, at times soothing...it provides a sharp
contrast to the subject matter, and it symbolizes what Christiane and her
friends were searching for but just couldn't seem to grab.
of 1974-1979 [IMPORT]
Compilation captures Bowie during
the waning & post-Ziggy Stardust days. Includes 'Fame', his collaboration
with John Lennon, 'John, I'm Only Dancing (Again)', 'Heroes', '1984', 'Young
Americans' & thirteen more.
With 1975's Young Americans, David
Bowie chose to head in yet another "new direction," this time extrapolating
on the slick disco-soul vibe that characterized 1974's David Live. Surrounded
by an army of backup singers (including Luther Vandross) and smooth session
players, Bowie actually makes the stylistic affectation work on 3 of the
songs-"Fame," "Young Americans," and "Can You Hear Me."D.Epstein
On Earth / Little Drummer Boy [CD-SINGLE]
Bowie, Bing Crosby
Don't hesitate to purchase this
CD. It is not only the best rendition of these songs you will ever hear,
but seeing David Bowie and Bing Crosby sing together is remarkable.
Best Of David Bowie 1969-1974 [IMPORT]
UK issue of 20 track 'Best Of'
which was originally released in the U.S. in 1997 for a limited time. Includes
the classics you'd expect, 'The Jean Genie', 'Space Oddity', 'Starman',
'Drive In Saturday', 'Ziggy Stardust', 'Suffragette City', 'Changes', 'The
Man Who Sold the World' and 'Sorrow', relative obscurities like the B-side
'Velvet Goldmine', Bowie's version of 'All the Young Dudes' and alternate

This record is one of his best.
