The CD2 ("Heroes") replacement disc is "Heroes". It is not currently considered part of this box set.
Explanation. Damage to the original master tapes for "Heroes" required the remastering team to make decisions that resulted in noticeable differences in some tracks on the final master and public releases. A month after its release, Parlophone issued this statement regarding CD2, "Heroes", Track 2:
"Concerning ‘Heroes’ what fans are hearing is not a level drop. This is, through mastering, an attempt to resolve an issue that exists on the original master tape.
"On the flat unmastered transfer, there was a temporary loss of energy on the track just before 2.50. During the album mastering some high-frequency automation (in the region of +- 6dB) has been added in order to compensate for this. So to clarify, there is not a drop in volume, there is a high frequency boost for a couple of seconds at the loss of energy which then returns to normal and the track continues to the end at a level consistent to the start." (ref. http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/parlophone-respond-to-david-bowie-berlin-box-set-mastering-criticisms/)

Despite this statement, Parlophone (Warner Music Group) offered gratis to all owners of the box a replacement Disc 2 with a remastered "Heroes" track that did not contain what sounded like a volume drop. (ref. http://www.davidbowie.com/news/heroes-album-update-57416 and https://www.facebook.com/davidbowie/photos/a.424610777664.193516.30899502664/10154971240237665/?type=3&theater). Warners replacement disc offer ended 1 Jun 2018.

Are newer copies issued with the replacement disc, or do they still have the weird "Heroes" remaster?
