Before his death yesterday. I wasn't a huge fan but had the CD of the Ziggy Stardust album.

Also, two compilations, 1990's single disc Changesbowie and 1993's double The Singles Collection which is great for a casual fan.

Vinyl, CD or some of each Dandy?

If I was to buy another of his earlier studio albums, which is his next best after Ziggy?

Love Bowie to bits but I mostly bought his singles until I was old enough to afford albums. I shockingly dont have Ziggy Stardust (though I have most of the tracks on it) or any album before it, have several hits, rarities compilations and cd sets, plus Aladdin Sane (the first I bought), Let's Dance, Tonight, Never Let Me Down. Don't have Scary Monsters or the Berlin trilogy or the latest - I want them, just haven't got round to it yet - bearing in mind there are hundreds of albums I havent bought that I want, and my current pile of unplayed purchased cd's is around 200. I have very little free time, leisure time, too busy working for a living or caring for my parents, and then trying to keep up with friends in anything that's left.

Most importantly, I'm always most interested in what's new and that takes priority, always has, so I keep up with new singles at the expense of albums. sad.gif

I have all up to The Next Day on CD but Hunky Dory, Ziggy & Aladdin Sane also on vinyl. My copy of Blackstar is vinyl.


Hunky Dory is the play safe option, it's better than Ziggy I think. Aladdin Sane after that.

Just remembered that I used to have the cassette of Let's Dance and the three big singles stand out head and shoulders above the other tracks.

The Sound + Vision 3-cd set from the 90's was pretty comprehensive in track listing cherry-picking (I splashed out on that) and the double CD a few years later wrapped up those that were missing. RCA years are the great albums, those after it have moments but arent as consistent until the recent 2, probably.

I've only got The Next Day and (for 3 days) Blackstar.

My parents have quite a few of the 70s and 80s LPs, but the rest of my Bowie stuff is digital singles/best of. Should really correct that!

Best of Bowie and the 'Labyrinth' soundtrack. I know the latter probably doesn't technically count but still smile.gif

Hunky Dory best for me, though Aladdin Sane and Ziggy come close.

All of them, including Toy.

Unfortunately, I don't have the Five years box set yet. Physically anyway.

I agree with Dandy that Hunky Dory is the best choice after Ziggy.

Aladdin Sane is my personal favourite.

I only had the 1969-1974 collection on CD.

Been listening to a few of the 70s albums this week though and Low is my favourite of the lot.

I have all of them except for blackstar (yet) most of the 70s and 80s albums being the rykodisc reissues from the 90s.

My own personal favourite is diamond dogs. But from hunky dory to scary monsters is an incredible run of albums
