Notes

Includes insert with publishing details and credits, a facsimile of the original fan club leaflet, and a facsimile of the original UK RCA edition die-cut inner sleeve with the text "Made in England R.S. 12-76". The track list on the rear sleeve is printed on an orange sticker, similar to the original UK edition.

This Parlophone DB 77821 2018 reissue was released with reproductions of the original 1977 fan club leaflets, including at least two different design and artwork versions of the bi-fold "Official International Fan Club" leaflet. In order to differentiate the artwork variations refer to the images or text below:

1. This version - cover profile image of David Bowie with his left arm raised. "Official International Fan Club" text on four separate lines of print, "Keep Up With David's Changes" interior with album covers on both sides.
2. Low - cover portrait image of David Bowie facing forward and smoking a cigarette. "Official International Fan Club" text on two separate lines of print, "The Many Sides Of David Bowie" interior with a fan club application on the left side and album covers on the right, back page with additional album covers.

The back of both versions of the fan club leaflet read in small text along the bottom edge "This is a replica of the original issued in 1977 and is no longer valid."

First catalog number appears on the spine, back cover and labels. Second catalog number appears at the end of the rim text string on both labels and in parentheses on the spine.

Some copies may include a "Made In Germany" on back sleeve.

    Yeah, this is absolutely fantastic. This pressing truly shines in the second half, the mastering providing a new layer to the haunting production present in the instrumentals. Must buy.

      I am actually surprised by this pressing. Bought from shop & thought well if its not good will just take back (like I have done with quite a few remastered new pressings lately !). However this is a keeper, the soundstage is not colossal but it is not exactly boxed in either. The clarity and separation is very good, the pressing is flat & there are no pops or clicks & between passages it is dead silent. I am still tempted to grab an old pressing just to see how they compare, I imagine some added static pops & clicks & a superior soundstage would be the result. Very happy with the punchy synths & nice deep bass, separation from bottom up is excellent !

        From '77, a very fine piece of experimental/art rock from maestro Bowie. Guitars by Carlos Alomar and some ambient work(side B) by Mr Eno. ;)

        David Bowie is utterly full of music, and his albums from this era demonstrate a seeming endless stream of original ideas.

        His self-produced works are always of very high quality. This contrasts nicely with the deliberate low budget artwork and sleeve, with sticker to indicate songs.

        I'm unable to compare this reissue with an original press, but this one seems quite engaging and reasonable. The vinyl is dead silent, and mastering seems quite nice.

        Recommended.

          My Side B pops throughout Warszawa and gets louder on Art Decade, not sure if everybody else got the same problem, this sucks. It's the best side of the album :( Gonna have to rebuy it!

            This remaster and pressing sounds completely different from the period pressing I own. A much more detail rich sound, but with some digititis causing the soundstage to sound flatter relative to my period pressing.

              I am so impressed with the detail level of this reissue, or should I say reproduction. Even the original inner sleeve enclosed additionally? Serioulsy? Even the sticker on the back… The quality of this pressing also leaves no doubts. All feels really special.

                Genuinely one of the best sounding records I own. Must-have if you enjoy Low.

                  Absolutely fantastic reissue. Completely silent flat pressing. Prefer this to my original!

                      I prefer the sound of this to my 70s pressing
