All Saints is the name of two different compilation albums by David Bowie, the first released privately in 1993, and the second in 2001 by Virgin/EMI, both featuring his instrumental work.

The first All Saints compilation was a two-disc set made as a Christmas gift to Bowie's friends and family in 1993. Only 150 copies were made.[2] Due to its rarity the album became a highly desirable collector's item over the years.[3]

In 2001 a second album titled All Saints was released by Bowie. For this release all tracks originating from the Black Tie White Noise album as well "South Horizon" from The Buddha of Suburbia were dropped, with "Brilliant Adventure" from 'hours...' and "Crystal Japan" appearing in their place.

Neither release is a complete compilation of Bowie's instrumental material.
