Sound + Vision is David Bowie's box set compilation released on Rykodisc in 1989. By the end of the 1980s, the rights to Bowie's pre-1983 catalogue originally issued by (Phillips/Mercury Records and RCA Records) reverted to Bowie and his former management company MainMan. Rykodisc had approached Bowie in 1988 to re-release albums on CD and Bowie agreed, and in September 1989 the Sound + Vision box set was released

Bowie’s description of the music may have advertised its inauthenticity, but that only enhanced his consistent outsider stance. In 1976 he varied his new dance-funk sound on Station to Station, adding elements of avant-garde German rock, an interest he would elaborate exponentially on in his next three releases, together known as the Berlin trilogy.
A special programme on the life and music of David Bowie, presented by Jeremy Vine. Bowie was one of the most influential musicians of his time, constantly re-inventing his persona and sound, from the 1960s hippy of Space Oddity, through Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke to his later incarnation as a soulful rocker.

David Bowie spent most of the Sixties trying desperately to become a famous musician. He knocked around in groups like the Manish Boys and Davie Jones with the King Bees and released solo singles like "The Laughing Gnome," but nothing seemed to work. Finally, he teamed up with Elton John producer Gus Dudgeon to create "Space Oddity," a song he'd been fiddling with all year. Bowie's 1970 album The Man Who Sold the World was his first with his classic band, the Spiders from Mars, who helped steer his sound from folk-tinged to forward-thinking rock & roll. This Lovecraft-ian science fiction song - with a title inspired by Robert A. Heinlein's novella The Man Who Sold the Moon - is evidently about an encounter with a doppelgänger - perhaps Bowie's past self.
