The record reproduction play quality on this RSD Ltd white vinyl edition is atrocious. From a company as well equipped as Parlophone to produce vinyl records at lets admit it, quite expensive prices is diabolical and everyone who has a copy should be entitled to their money back. My copy for a new record plays like someone is frying eggs in the background on a very high heat. “BOWIE NOW” there’s a thought might just set my copy on fire. Do not buy.

FWIW, I've been using an AT120 for a long time as a table, so thats what I saw it skipping on a few years ago. dont think ive spun it since.

A surprisingly fine album track selection of Berlin-era Bowie tracks.

My copy skipped in three or four spots at the beginning of side B, but after repeated plays, the skipping has stopped. This leads me to believe that it was just dirty.

Please adjust your stylus pressure and anti-scaring mechanism before conclude on skipping. Some modern vinyls are reported to be very sensitive to stylus adjustment.

Great 12" if you want a collection of great songs, but mine skips on the first track of side B, so that gives it 2 out of 5 for me, as it seems a common problem, so shit production. But still, I do love the songs.

My copy of this fine release played absolutely great. It's really nice to hear this material again on vinyl. Better open up my Earls Court discs,sounds like many people had issues with that release!

I’m experiencing skipping on the first track of side b as well. the parts that play of that track sound terrible almost the entire song. Otherwise it’s a good album. I hope a spinclean fixes this - or adjusting the weight, but that’s not really great for the record or needle

No skipping on my copy, but I did experience some non-fill issues with the b-side of this album. Ripping noises, alternately in the right and left channel, and most disturbingly in both channels at a certain point in Weeping Wall. Did anyone else have similar experiences?
