David Bowie was one of the most iconic figures in British music, with a history and catalogue unlike any other. He flirted with many different styles throughout his illustrious career, taking influence from rock, pop, prog, punk, drum ‘n’ bass and just about any genre you can name, creating some of the most unique compositions committed to tape. Right up until his final album, Blackstar, Bowie was constantly reinventing his sound.
His untimely passing in 2016 has left a hole in the music world, but his legacy lives on through fans and collectors. You can see just a small selection of the highlights we currently have in stock below, as well as watch a video on some of the items we have had. You can browse our full catalogue at eil.com.
