This was an authorised six part series that spanned the life of Bowie up to 1993 and includes specially recorded contributions from David Bowie, Tony Visconti, Nile Rodgers, Carlos Alomar, Brian Eno and many others.
Number of discs: 6

Each disc in just under an hour long and is one continuous track (this is how my original discs are).
Each disc contains interviews and snippets of music, the music is always in context of the era and is usually relating to what is being spoken about.
My set of six discs didn’t come with artwork, although there is suitable artwork in the gallery if needed.
