David Bowie’s 1966-1967 recordings for Decca Records have been released in various configurations over the years. This European compilation presents 14 of them, songs that originally turned up on singles and LPs between 1966 and 1970. At the height of his Anthony Newley phase, Bowie is highly theatrical and occasionally humorous, but there is little for fans of his later rock & roll music to enjoy. The lead-off track, the novelty “The Laughing Gnome” (originally released in 1967), became a U.K. Top Ten hit in 1973 in the wake of Bowie’s commercial breakthrough.
