Early On (1964–1966) is a compilation album by David Bowie, released in 1991. It is notable because of it being the first and only attempt to compile a comprehensive collection of all of Bowie's pre-Deram material and encompasses multiple labels including Vocallion, Parlophone, and Pye. Tracks three and four are alternate versions to the official singles, while "Do Anything You Say" is also a different mix to the normal single. There are also five unreleased songs included that came from Shel Talmy's collection. Talmy produced Bowie's second and third single. A cassette version was released, however this omitted "Lize Jane", "Louie, Louie Go Home", and "Good Morning Girl".[1]
