CSPC: David Bowie Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 4 – Platinum Collection Box

Both 69/74 and 74/79 best of albums got released in 1997 and 1998, with the tripled Platinum Collection set coming out in 2005. The newly added third disc 80/87 got his own release a couple of years later.

As the box contains the exact same 3 albums released individually, its sales got distributed in full to each of them, which is why sales assigned to studio albums amount to 1,8 million while the original box sold 600,000 units. Logically, now that the definitive artist best hits got defined, that distribution follows the same pattern of previously seen packages.

Also the version of All The Young Dudes with Ian Hunter and Bowie on vocals on the Mott The Hoople page doesn’t show up on his features.

Just noticed that a number of Bowie songs have recently been been greyed out on spotify and their totals no longer show on the spotify tool report.They’re all on the albums Platinum Collection and Sound + Vision.
Also for some reason the songs credited to Bowie and the Spider on the Bowie at the Beeb album have a separate artist id??
