Thanks to one of my employers I got the opportunity to check out the David Bowie Is exhibition in Melbourne recently. If you’ve ever had even the remotest interest in his career it is an exhibition well worth checking out. Get yourself to the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square in Melbourne before 1 November 2015 for your opportunity to experience a wonderful collection of outfits, video footage, hand-written notes and a plethora of other Bowie memorabilia.
I have always enjoyed his music and been a fan longer than I can remember. I’m of that generation that grew up with Bowie as always present – either on the radio, television, film etc. Now that he’s at the tail end of his career it’s hard to imagine the media and music landscape without him.
So inspired by the exhibition I have decided to list my favourite Bowie albums below. If you’ve ever wondered about adding Bowie to your music collection any of these are a good place to start, in my humble opinion.
