Win Some Classic David Bowie
On June 5, Virgin/EMI will release The Best Of David Bowie 1980-1987: Sight & Sound. It's one of those CDs with a DVD snuck in there. 19 audio tracks of Bowie’s best '80s jamz like "Blue Jean" , “Let’s Dance,” “Modern Love,” and “China Girl”. Plus 15 videos from that era plus DVD release debut vids for “The Drowned Girl” and “When The Wind Blows.”
Virgin/EMI will also re-release the Bowie classic Young Americans, 33 years after it came out, giving it all the expanded Special Edition CD/DVD magic we've become accustomed to. That CD/DVD will also come out on 06/05/07.
To celebrate, we will be giving away both of these cds to a random reader who leaves a comment below explaining where they think the Eastside of LA ends and the Westside begins. So tell us and maybe you will win!
Contest ends noon on June 1 so get to it.
