Space Oddity (1999 Remaster)
Label: Parlophone UK
The breadth of his long, rewarding career is clear on this summation of Bowie's work. Chances are you know the words to each song, as these are nothing less than his biggest hits. From his addled days in the 1960s, through his rockin' early-'70s and soul-man resurgence on into the '80s, there's hardly a misstep.
