Bowie - Fifty-Two Years: The Complete Singles [2019 Update]

You might remember this one that was put together after Bowie's passing. But now, four years later, I think it needs an update.  If you've never seen this set, it is both sides of every Bowie single, including collaborations, or other singles that he was audibly involved in.  Things got more complicated when he stopped making 45s and moved to CD singles, with all the bonus tracks and remixes.  I didn't want this to be bogged down with all of that.

  I remembered the comments from Willard's and have taken those into account. I got the most flack (pardon the pun) for not having the original UK version of "Rebel Rebel".  That's now fixed as I found there was a three-month difference between the UK & US (so no need to have the same song played twice in a row).  I also found a B-Side that had previously never found its way to CD/digital (Lady Grinning Soul US Single Edit). Diamond Dogs (Australian Single Edit) was added along with Breaking Glass (Australian Single Version), Art Decade (Studio Version), Yassassin (Netherlands Single Version), and the Bertolt Brecht's Baal EP. On top of that, I replaced most single versions, previously found on many different sources with sometimes questionable quality with the Re:Call CDs from the yearly Bowie boxes.

The other big complaint was not including tracks from Bowie's unreleased Toy album.  Some appeared as CD bonus tracks.  I still don't know what to do about that yet but here it is and I'd like your feedback!

Thank you so, so, SO much.

Dave said...

Yet another titanic achievement! Never got around to getting this from Willard so I really appreciate the re-posting and the updates!

peerke said...

Both on your list and on the downlad, 'Heroes', track 12 from cd 4 is missing.

BlankFrank said...

@Peerke, thanks for pointing that out! I do try to be careful, but sometimes sh*t happens. It's now updated. Same link will take you there and once again, many thanks.

This is a phenomenal collection. Must have taken hours if not days to compile. Well done!

miguel alsina said...

fantastic post!! But missing Queen-Bowie Under Pressure

Thank you for this post and all the others! What a wonderful site!

BlankFrank said...

@ miguel alsina you can find "Under Pressure" Volume 5 Track 14.

Yung American said...

What a great collection! Thanks for the effort. Is there any chance of adding the German & French versions of Heroes"? (RCA / PC-9821 (Germany)

Ace F'really said...

This compilation and your generosity are breathtaking. Many many thanks for this treasure.

What a brilliant gift for us! Very many thanks, Paul

richie said...

thanx for all your time
and effort in compiling
this collection


Mark G said...

Lovely to see this exists once more, I got the orig from Willard, and made a nice set from it with the each volume's track one single label as each cd label.

The only hmm I had was the decision to leave off "Baal", but hey.

Is there an 'Update' version with the tracks not on the original?

Anyway, cheers!


LonChes said...

Thanks for this, very cool!

Thank you very much for these CDs. I had found them on a Russian site but I think you have to download each track separately; that was never going to happen. So thank you once again, much appreciated.

Paolo Meccano said...

Thanks for sharing. These are actually better than the 'Re:call' discs in the boxsets.

Justin J said...

Thanks for this. Is there any way possible to re-upload? The links posted are not working.

Uncle Pete said...

Anonymous said...

Could we get a re-up of this? I missed out on your edit, and I'd love to have it. I'm a huge fan of Willard's original version. Thanks!

Mike said...

Add me to the list of those respectfully requesting a re-up. You've got some awesome collections!

Wayne Grantley said...

This is a truly splendid collection of the late & great Bowie's music. Unfortunately the links no longer work. I Would really appreciate a Re-Up. Tx

pinkie said...

Ach, no longer available, pity. Haven't been here since I grabbed some Who goodies from you (A Quick One) so I guess I've been out of the loop. Blog still looks good! cheers.

Mike said...

Could you please repost this collection? I admit I'm grabbing a few of your posts. You clearly put together some fantastic collections. Thank you for all the ones I already have.
