He's been silent now since 2004 - but even if David Bowie never recorded another note, he'd still be considered one of the most preternaturally creative figures of the rock era. Adopting a plethora of personas and styles but always resolutely himself, recordings from any period of his long career can make newly-minted sounds appear tame; but how to choose the top ten essential recordings? What are the best ways to sample the triumphs of his astonishing first decade - a ten-year sprint containing Aladdin Sane, Low and Ziggy Stardust? Which of his eighties LPs do you need? And who's going to give it up for such later works as Earthling and Heathen, or his albums made with Tin Machine?
Post your comments and recommendations below, please, and the best will appear in the magazine. Cheers!
