Good to see this online. I was in NYC and got a copy a few weeks back, but if you haven't it's well worth snagging - another wrinkle on the Stage/Blackout sound/performance. And if you act quick you won't have to pay some ebay flipper over odds for it.

I found it on my phone a few months back, but the real prize is the catalogue. The show was designed before "The Next Day" so the Brooklyn show has the material from that and "Blackstar." I couldn't make myself buy the $300.00 hardbound catalogue so this will do nicely.

Thank you the_starman 
I ordered Live in Berlin 1978, the one of the records from Brooklyn I really wanted, I know it runs slow but somehow I just really needed to have it, It is my favourite Bowie live tour. 
iSelect and the Time single are both marked with restocking, I doubt they get them again, but there are still more of the live in Berlin album.

I had mine sendt to an American address, it was about $7 in shipping, I dont know how much it is to ship to Europe, the reason I used my friends address was not that much the extra shipping but that I didn't wanna be hit with both vat, tax and then a stupid import fee the Danish mail can attach, that fee alone could cost the same as the record. They should sell them from the two official Bowie stores (US and Europe) so all that stuff would be sorted when we order our stuff.
I wont have if before my friend comes here or I go to the US, but now there is one less thing to hunt for this collector  ;-D

It's $45 to ship to Europe!!!! Really ridiculous. With the risk of attracting customs ($25 is dangerously close to the custom-free limit of €22) and also having to pay an additional €13 custom fee plus 21% over the total amount of $70. That would make a total of €85 ($98.32) for this EP.
So I'leave this for what it is...

$45 shipping is more than absurd, it's offensive!

it's £30 for god's sake! Less than half a tank of petrol or two takeway pizzas that would only make you fat. And postmen have to work too you know.

Sure, but the actual package & shipping cost are not $45. It’s just a sign that BM does not want to ship overseas. Plus the customs may make it even more expensive.

If one wants to pay this hefty sum, one might as well buy it on eBay or Discogs.

I would also not order two takeaway pizza’s for 30 pounds btw And a full tank (60 l) of petrol will cost me €108 unfortunately

Well next time I see something online that I think may interest proper Bowie fans who happily pay  for postage, customs and pizzas,  I will exclude you! ;-)

Your post is much appreciated, it’s not your fault they charge almost twice the item price for p&p

You're lucky - I had to buy the fcking Mail On Sunday to get it!
I think I'd sooner have forked out 50 quid and postage/customs charges than swell their profits...

Ouch! Well at least you dosh went to hard working postal workers and into the Exchequer which means it will be redistributed into worthy social projects, helping the homeless, mental health provision, etc. Not to mention supporting the arts rather than a horrible ebay flipper. (I'm not sure you're buying any of this, but it's the best I could do to help ease the pain..)

THANK you so much for this link, I have ordered two so the postage costs weren't as painful - thanks again!

I'm confused, the orange book was a new print for the Brooklyn show featuring the The Next Day and Blackstar material?

There was* a new edition of the book, which was available at the Brooklyn Museum + a few copies were available on the Bowie Store and the V&A website. 

That edition had some additional material, and the design was re-worked a bit (more info here)

*I'm not sure if it's still for sale - I just did a quick search on the Brooklyn Museum Store page, and didn't find it.

Ah! The more expensive silver Brooklyn edition. But the standard orange book was the same?

Yes, it was, but my sister needs a Christmas present-slash-souvenir of our sojourn inside Mr. Bowie’s head.
