    David Bowie’s often groundbreaking videos have been collected for a new DVD, Best Of Bowie, due out November 19. The 47-song, two-disc set is designed to complement the two separate Best Of Bowie CD releases–one single-disc set and one double-disc set–coming out October 22.

You Pretty Things,” “Five Years,” and “Queen Bitch”–taken from the British TV show, The Old Grey Whistle Test.

    The set also includes Bowie’s rendition of Martha & the Vandellas’ Motown staple “Dancing In The Street” performed with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for the 1985 Live Aid concerts.
