Just received an e-mail stating that Warners are no longer sending out "Heroes" replacement discs. Anyone else received this? Seems very shoddy indeed.


January 16, 2018
Got the "Heroes" replacement LP. I have Submitted here: David Bowie - "Heroes".


December 31, 2017
Hast anyone already received a replacement disc or got a response upon his request?


October 31, 2017

No complaints here. Yes Low has that thing but that aside I am very pleased. Love Bowie and all these three box sets. Recall albums could have much more interesting material though but i knew what they would have before I bought each box set. I would recommend this to any Bowie fan. Very pleased to own on vinyl Bowie's best albums with a good sound. 10/10


October 27, 2017
Anyone knows why the LOW LP have a sticker in the back with the tracklist? some error corrected?

I really don't know what most of the complains heading for.
My Vinylbox Set sounds pretty good, and the "Heroes" issue isn't as bad as most assume.
I have all the origin vinyl of Bowie and compared them to the new so-called remaster.
Some stuff sounds better in details, some don't.
I quite like the new mix of "Lodger", even though I like the old version most.
I sometimes believe, that this discussion is more a "religious discussion", rather than a matter of taste, because everyone's taste is different.
The only complain is the Recall 3. They should've released "Baal" in its origin design (gatefold cover).
And I am not a fan of the "single-versions". They should've taken some other real rare stuff instead, maybe some of the original stuff from the supposed soundtrack of "The Man Who Fell To Earth" would've been very interesting.

FB post 2017-10-11:
While attempts were made to maintain the integrity of the issue that existed on the original master tape of the "Heroes" album, fans’ concerns have been listened to and a new master is being created to replace the current one.
As soon as the new file is available, the digital versions will be updated and those of you who would like a replacement "Heroes" album will be eligible for one. Further details on how to obtain your replacement CD and/or vinyl will follow in due course. In the meantime please retain your proof of purchase.
Thank you for your continued patience and sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused."

Listened to heroes and scary monsters, and compared to the German and UK 1st pressings, these are notably inferior. My initial impression was loud, boomy and lacking low level detail and bass extension (when there was low frequency information in ashes to ashes and fashion that was defined). Really nice packaging, flat vinyl, etc., but so far, a disappointment to my ears. I'm not a millionaire, but I have a high quality setup that is pretty good at pulling a lot of information out of those grooves.

Not crazy about the volume drop on Heroes. That aside, I really think this box sounds excellent, and isn't overly compressed or bass-heavy (at least not on my system, anyway.)
