David Bowie’s impact on the world of music was – and continues to be – immeasurable. From glam messiah Ziggy Stardust and the experimental ‘Berlin Years’, to the blond megastar of the Let’s Dance era and beyond to his emotional final album, Blackstar, the singer rarely failed to inspire, challenge and entertain. But, as creator of nearly 30 studio albums, hundreds of amazing songs, and a raft of live recordings, soundtracks LPs and compilations, how best to navigate his vast legacy? And what of his myriad film appearances and the many Bowie-themed books?
Written by MOJO’s team of experts, Bowie Essentials tells you everything you need to know to piece together your ultimate Bowie collection. As well as reappraisals of each of his studio LPs, we profile the Mod and R&B recordings the singer made in the mid-’60s, and make sense of the flood of live recordings, box sets and rarities compilations that have appeared since his untimely death in 2016.
There are also celebrations of Bowie’s most important songs – as collected on the posthumous ‘best of’ album, Legacy – and a survey of his movie appearances, from starring roles in The Man Who Fell To Earth, Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and Labyrinth, to his fascinating 1970 promo reel Love Me Till Tuesday and role as Andy Warhol in Basquiat. Plus we recommend the best Bowie literature with which to line your reading shelves.
Illustrated throughout with dozens of rare and iconic photographs, Bowie Essentials is an indispensable purchase for all Bowie connoisseurs and serious music fans.
