I really will be resisting this one.
The majority of Bowie remixes on albums are usually so so boring.

I can't be bothered to go and find the three vinyl or so copies I have of the album, let alone the CD variations, but I think, you can see more of the right hand side of the pic than before? Ie more of the wall and the litter bag?

Less of the left though?

"Fascinating", I know.



------------------
The next EMI Expanded Editions:
* What are your hopes for these releases?
* Let's have The Man Who Sold The World with the complete Paris Cinema Studios, Feb 5, 1970 radio concert, and the complete April 1970 radio session. Hunky Dory - add the complete Paris Cinema Studios concert, June 1971 in stereo, from the BBC Stereo Transcription LP if the master is lost!
* Any future live 1974 release MUST include a recording of Drive In Saturday from the early part of the tour, it's classic!
The next DVD release?
* Cracked Actor / Omnibus documentary must be released on DVD!

Mist, the important question for me is how is the sound quality of the 2012 mastering? How does it compare to the Ryko and Virgin masterings?

so it hasnt changed then?
damn i was hoping there would be an extra surprise like a super deluxe issue which they were holding back the details for.
looking unlikely now.
will be a first but i'm not buying this unless the packaging makes it worthwhile.
the dvd is probably not gonna be much use for quite a few of us.
i don't even have a record deck anymore.
for me this is the worst bowie reissue ever it seems like a hastily put together last moment thing to me, and i'm sure the sound on the cd will be barely noticeable.

would it have made it worth buying. I don't know anyone (in my circles at least)these days who uses 5.1. It is a real lost chance to do something great. There is absolutely no thought gone behind this re-issue.

It's still a way off yet - and if this is actually real (which I doubt) then there is still the possibility that the extended version is being held back.

I have the EMI press release, which substantiates this cover. I gave a copy to PK, he might put it on the news page. BTW, the Alzheimer story's a lot of nonsense too, Bowie's been seen out and about in NY loads of times recently.

Well I'm buying the DVD ( and the included vinyl ) around 14 quid on pre order at Amazon at the moment which isn't too bad I suppose.

Ok so this release isn't what everyone would consider the best effort when it comes to content but the fact is some of us are into 5.1 surround sound and some of us missed the 30th Av release, also some of us are into vinyl as well still. At the end of the day to say its a totally pointless release isn't strictly true since some of it appeals to some of us for the reasons Ive just given. As with all releases of this type you buy with your head or your particular need and not just because it's something being released.

It's a pointless release for some but not for all of us it isn't. I'm passing on the CD btw simply because for me personally I don't really need it. Yes this could have been better but it's not a total disaster for some of us.

well, nobody screws up Bowie's back catalogue quite like EMI.

Besides, his deal runs out, about now, so, howcome they still get to release this ?
And why is it just Ziggy, if there is one "additional" period that deserves a well cared for re-release it's the Berlin trilogy.

oh well, glad to hear he's around in New York. Must mean he's seeing or doing stuff he's still interested in.

well i'm guessing this will probably be the final release of the current deal with emi, and its obvious emi wanted this to tie in with the 40th anniversary and with it being his most famous album thats why they have gone with this instead of another album. i suppose they think with the timing and press reports it will help sales and they probably think all the fans will buy it but sales could have been much better if a bit more thought had gone into it.a dvd is not enough reason for the majority of us to buy it and even less of joe public will be interested.
like i said bowie has granted it's release due to the anniversary reasons and a final parting shot to emi.
he does'nt seem to be bothered with it at all and i'm sure we will get a another better release in the future where bowie will be involved along with the rest of the back catalogue.

What I said just before might appear to be a contradiction on some of my previous replies on the subject ofconstant re releases of db's albums. It's what are re release actual offers that's the key.

This 40th Ziggy release offers something we haven't got unless you bought the SACD of Ziggy ( which I did back in the day when I bought everything! but could never play because SACD never really took off and I didn't ever get a SACD DVD player ) this latest release gives 5.1 to a much bigger audience since a lot of 5.1 surround sound systems are out there and now fairly cheap to buy also there is still is a thriving market for vinyl. These two things alone make this a worthwhile release.

Things like the Friday Music Hours CD to me are pointless since it doesn't really offer anything new that we haven't been able to get / source before. Some fans will appreciate it but enough to warrent a full production run? I'm not so sure? If you have the expanded edition etc then really what is the point in buying it unless you are someone who really must have every single release that comes our way ??

There isn't a definitive answer to all this is there? so like I said we should all buy according to our actual needs and not be ruled by our hearts.

Just my opinion.

i'm just disappointed along with quite a few others i suspect. its a golden opportunity missed.
just as we seemed to be getting back on track with reissues/remasters with the last few being really good, its like we're going backwards again.
i can accept the dvd and vinyl but they could have made the dvd more worthwhile and included some visuals like the promos/tv appearances for example.
a bonus disc would have been nice with the complete bbc sessions included which they started to do with david bowie and space oddity.
i feel we've been shortchanged it could have been a lot better but yeah it's quite clear it's a rush job.
you just know this won't be the final say on the ziggy stardust reissue i was hoping it would be the final ultimate version but alas no.
it's annoying that there's no kind of set formula with bowie reissues, his back catalogue stands as being very bitty, its kind of a joke really for an artist of bowie's stature.
he needs to take a leaf out of mccartneys book and do what he has been doing get involved and be the executive and take control of his own back catalogue.

Great to see the price has come down on Amazon trev When I pre-ordered mine last week it was £23.00 vinyl and DVD.

I'll buy it if the cd / stereo version is any good. I have no use for 5.1, DVD, surround etc and already own several vinyl versions, so it'll be interesting to hear the cd. I'm not going to buy it until I've heard it first, though.

I am not a collector.

I have no idea what 5 point 1 means.

bonus tracks? this mix or that?

or whether a picture from the album is smaller or larger.

all good working class people swapped lp's in the seventies.

Ziggy was was one of them.

We gathered and heard.

Let it be.

That's exactly how I got into Bowie big time. Sharing/swaping Lps together, having listening parties. At the time I was about 11 so I coudn't really afford to buy his records. My first vynil version of Aladdin sane was a swap from my friend. I gave him a copy of Bad Company ( forget the title). I was never a headbanger.

£14.99 for 180g vinyl including the DVD is an absolute steal IMO

This release is worse than Liverpool's home form this season.

I would not even pay £2 for this release let alone what they are asking. Anyone who buys it is a fool and panders to EMI and Bowie's view that fans will buy any old shit with his name on it.

I can see it now....March 2012 in the EMI office....

"Hey, isn't Bowie's Ziggy album due for a 40th slap up? Let's not worry too much. We can just put out any old load of shite and those mindless, pathetic and hopeless fans will shell out for it."

And I bet Bowie thinks exactly the same too.

So what is so "previously unreleased" about the bones tracks? yet more different versions? or does it mean previously unreleased on the 5.1 format?

The 5.1 audio is new and it sounds rather groovy.

This could have been something to really shout about if it had been planned out properly.

I'll get the dvd for packaging, the 5.1 and the new mix which is hopefully a far better mix than the last that EMI did.

I've ordered my copy on Amazon. Only because I don't have Ziggy Stardust on Vinyl and to get 5.1 as well for only £14.00 or so is a bargain. Still I'm disappointed in the bonus material. They could have at least put a a lot more thought into it.

at least the same one's as the 30th, plus apparently loads of Beeb sessions that still haven't been released.

The artwork should be a photoshopped original Ziggy against the modern day backdrop.

It might be too much to ask, but I would have thought something like this is about due:

Disc 1:
Original Album Mix Remastered

Disc 2:
2012 Album Remix
This would feature a "heavier" more rock driven mix, based on Bowie's comments regarding the "polite" nature of the album. Something like what was done to Moonage Daydream.

Disc 3:
The Complete BBC sessions.

Disc 4:
Single Edits, and the Complete Arnold Corns Releases

Disc 5:
Outtakes, Demos, and Material from the Ziggy Musical

Disc 6:
Another complete show from the Main Man vaults. Boston?

DVD:
The two album mixes in 5.1
The complete Ziggy Era Music Videos and TV spots
TV Interviews
A montage of Home Footage taken by Bowie, Mainman, and Bowie's friends.
A documentary on the recording of the album.
A documentary on the costumes, make up, and hair.
A documentary on the character, Ziggy Stardust.
A documentary on the many narrative interpretations of the album, and the abandoned musical.
The Mick Rock Films from the Rainbow show and anything else he shot.

Packaged with a hardbound book featuring essays, the Mirabelle Diaries, pictures of the different sleeve artworks, and of course, Mick Rock photos galore.
