The 27 studio albums, innumerable singles, multitude of bootlegs and recent wave of boxset reissues are just the tip of the iceberg No other artist provokes the passion of record collectors the world over in quite the same way as David Bowie. If you’ve ever put needle to vinyl - and we’d imagine by the simple fact that you’re reading this magazine you probably have - the chances arc that somewhere in your collection there will be a Bowie record. Whether you’re a seasoned fanatic who scours Discogs and your local record fairs for Bowie rarities, a completist zeroing in on the final few items missing from your wants list or a vinyl newcomer trying to navigate your way through arguably the most diverse and influential back catalogue of any recording artist ever to live, these 132 pages are your humble companion. Allow us, with a little help from our friends at and Discogs, to guide you through the essential albums, turkeys to sidestep, alternative pressings and rarc-as- hen’s-teeth curiosities. We also dig deep into the making of those 27 studio albums and even take a stab at the unenviable task of ranking them in some sort of tenuous order of merit. If you’re a regular Long Live Vinyl reader, thanks for picking up this Bowie special; if this is your first time, we hope you’ll enjoy it and give the regular mag a spin next. Thanks for reading.
