Product Description

He may have been one of the finest composers of the past 50 years, but David Bowie was proud to wear his musical influences on his sleeve and never afraid to provide his own unique versions of the songs he loved. Indeed, as early in his career as 1973, he released an entire album of such with Pin Ups, when he performed songs he knew and admired from his teenage years – hit singles by British Beat Groups from the mid 1960s. And many a Bowie fan from that era is still under the illusion that the old Merseys’ smash ‘Sorrow’ is a bona-fide Bowie song, such was his treatment of the record’s hit single.

But across the years David’s tastes and inspirations have developed and broadened exponentially and as a tribute to such a diverse range of informants, we hereby present the ultimate tribute to David Bowie’s mythical Jukebox.

Featuring cuts from as diverse a collection of tune-smiths as Lou Reed, Jacques Brel, James Brown, Stravinsky, Bertolt Brecht and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, among numerous others, this collection works on any number of levels and provides both a fascinating glimpse into the Record Collection of Bowie and a delightful compilation of songs from a wide selection of 20th Century Composers who rarely feature on the same album together.
