Sounds pretty awful - quiet, lifeless, muffled. Seems like it was taken from a slow running tape, or perhaps everyone on the stage that night took the same downers?

Yep this isn't a great recording and is from a slow tape, so sounds brutally sluggish without adjustment. I've upped the fine pitch on my deck by +3.5%. I just compared it side by side to Welcome to the Blackout, so it's a rough match. It's the least essential of the three official '78 tour releases but it's a pretty orange! Still had copies in Brooklyn last weekend for $25.

Anyone have a copy at a reasonable price that can ship to Norway?

Brooklyn Museum had a few copies today, plus a whole batch of the iSelect compilation....

this was most probably recorded on a cassette from the soundboard (either for the band to hear and correct things, or semi legally for the staff) , so don't expect sonic quality, it's worth 10€ (20 if you're a Bowie completist) but not much imo, it's really muffled, check it on youtube

I went to Brooklyn today and was able to get a copy of Berlin '78. They had plenty of copies in the lobby gift shop and the Bowie shop at the end of the exhibit. They also had plenty of copies of the "Time" single. However, they didn't have any copies of the iSelect LP. Unfortunately, when I got home and put it on the turntable, I immediately noticed that the performance felt sluggish. (I checked my turntable, it's fine.) I compared two songs against an original Japanese LP of Stage, and another against the 2017 CD of Stage. In all cases the songs on the Berlin LP were in a lower key (1/2 step down.) So, unless the band was lowering the keys of some songs for the European leg of the tour (which doesn't seem likely), this LP was made from a slow tape. :-(

Picked up two of these on Friday 3/23... Anyone in the UK need a copy? (not at an insane price)

I'm a sucker for any releases documenting the Isolar I or II tours and this mini lp delivers with a punch. Hold's up with the performances on both Stage and Live Nassau Coliseum '76.

Today - March 18th - they have it back in stock (at the moment) at the Brooklyn Museum.

Today, march 13th. 11 days after the opening of the Exhibition and still 4 months to go.
Commercially spoken it would be a bad strategy not to make this edition available again. Already sold out and an urgent need
to bring in a new stock.
