On Oct. 7, EMI-Capitol Entertainment Properties released a limited special edition David Bowie hits package. With this release, Bowie is just one of the four artists taking part in the label's "Essential" albums series.

Fans of Bowie, who is currently on tour in America, must pick up David Bowie - Best Of 1969-1974. This collection of 20 hits highlights Bowie's energetic early years when he first launched onto the music scene and introduced the world to his alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

The compilation includes Bowie favorites "All The Young Dudes," "Space Oddity," "Ziggy Stardust" and "Suffragette City" along with a cover of the Rolling Stones "Let's Spend The Night Together." In addition, the album highlights 16 other songs including many b-sides and previously unreleased stereo versions.
