Details of New Bowie Collection, Nothing Has Changed, Revealed

How many greatest hits collection does a Bowie fan really need? I did a quick inventory in my record closet and I found at least five–and I’m sure there’s more out there. And because I’m a fan, I’ll probably end up with Nothing Has Changed, which is being hyped as the definitive Bowie collection.

And whoever wrote that copy has a point. While most other Bowie compilations begin with “Space Oddity” in 1969, this one goes back to his first recordings in 1964. Here’s the track listing of the 3-CD edition–and notice the sequencing, which is all over the place. That’s obviously by design.  Oh, and each edition has its own artwork, too. Everything will be available November 17.
