Changestwobowie, released in 1981, is a David Bowie compilation album issued by RCA Records. Its title and packaging followed the format of RCA's first Bowie compilation, Changesonebowie in 1976. As well as post-1976 singles, the album collected songs from earlier in Bowie's career that had not appeared on Changesone. However it did not repeat the chart success of the earlier compilation, reaching No. 27 in the UK charts and No. 68 in the United States. The album was briefly available on CD beginning in 1985 and was soon deleted along with most of Bowie's other RCA albums due to a conflict between Bowie and RCA. The album was not reissued when Rykodisc obtained the rights to re-release the Bowie catalog in 1990.
