20th May, 2016, marks forty years since David Bowie's first ever best of compilation, CHANGESONEBOWIE (with tracks from the period 1969 to 1976), was released.

The original David Bowie hits compilation tells the story of Bowie's metamorphosis from quizzical folkie to a conquering colossus, and is partially responsible for cementing his stardom.
"Strange Angels" is the debut solo album by British guitarists David Mark Pearce. Having served the progressive rock genre as the lead guitarist for Oliver Wakemen's band, Pearce enters melodic hard rock territory with this solo effort "Strange Angels". Indeed "Strange Angels" has more in common with `80s melodic rock, even glam metal than the progressive nature of David's previous ventures.

Instead of attempting to be relevant to the alternate rock scene of 2000, Coverdale sticks with the type of commercial hard rock, arena rock, and power ballads that he is best known for. And even though the songs…
40th Anniversary Heavyweight Vinyl & Hi Res Audio Edition. Here's the edition of Ziggy Stardust everyone has been waiting for since David Bowie executed the character onstage nearly 40 years ago. Originally released through RCA Victor on June 6, 1972, Ziggy Stardust was Bowie’s fifth album, co-produced by Bowie and Ken Scott. The album eventually peaked at #5 on the UK Album Chart. Its influence is immeasurable, as it converted legions of fans, becoming the zeitgeist and a major influence on the next generation, particularly to those involved in the punk movement. Famously, Bowie killed Ziggy at his peak at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, on July 3rd, 1973. Pop music was never the same again.
Excellent addition to any rock music collection
