Now that's tempting!

My old Japanese issue is not as good as I had hoped :(

JB online are doing this edition for $32 postage included, versus £20 plus postage from the U.K.

I was hoping mine would arrive today but did not.£11 pre order price from Amazon UK.So far fans are happy with the Vinyl release being as close as the first UK release as you can get.Here is a coment from Ken Scott from the Hoffman site...

OK people, time to jump in. Yes this is the first time I have really been involved in any Bowie re-masters. Hence the use of Ray Staff, the mastering engineer that worked on the album originally. I can tell you that Ray used the original master tapes and that he worked analog right up to the last minute. All eq is analog and I'm sure, going by past experience, there will be some of you out there that will disagree, but I happen to think this is the closest we've got to the original vinyl pressings.

As far as Starman goes, unless someone sometime swapped the original mix for the alternate one that I don't remember doing, this is the mix I, David, Mainman and RCA approved.

One last thing, TOTAL self promotion, but Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust is released on June 6th and I'm prepared for the onslaught.

Cheers
