Runtime is not a typo, it's really 7:34, I checked it. All the digital files you can buy and stream are only 5.18, so this RSD vinyl version is really something special.

This reissue sounds better than all the recent Bowie reissues I've heard combined. What did they do here? This mix packs a punch. A very raw, energetic version of the classic 'Let's Dance.' Damn it sounds good. The drums are heavy as hell and really pack a punch. A very open and spacious sounding mix, with nice dynamics and balance. Nice separation and detail. This has to be cut from tape, the sound is just so powerful it's hard to believe otherwise. A real treat for Bowie fans. I really enjoy this demo version.
