Great album and perfect pressing. Parlophone and Bowie makes vinyl come alive!
Got this one for Shopping For Girls to find out later that it is actually a Tin Machine release, but this acoustic stripped down of rocky guitars version sounds way better in my opinion.

I love this album. Pressing quality is perfect, but more importantly the intimate texture of that voice is there in your room. It isn't a big s t e r e o thing it punches near mono perfection

Amazing sound quality on this release. Very intimate recording and the better for it.

Finally listened to this and WOW. It’s by far one of the most pristine sounding vinyl I own. Such a joy to listen to from beginning to end.

This is a sonic masterpiece. The recording is excellent. Further, it's like you are being treated to David Bowie and a few musicians performing in a small intimate setting for you. I can't recommend it enough.

Bought on RSD just getting to now. Wow worth the wait. Acoustically driven takes loving the guitar. This was worthy of the other Bowie RSD Live 74 price. It went for stupid money, playing now David lost his voice on first side. Anyways Changes Now is stellar reminds me of the Rykodisc releases from late 80's with all the great demos. This more polished but just as good.

The limited edition aspect is a red herring: this is a major Bowie release. Other available versions of these songs are usually with a full band and busy arrangements; here you get an unusual repertoire, taking in selections from 'Hunky dory', 'Lodger' and the second Tin Machine album, played by a four-piece band (including Bowie) with an emphasis on acoustic guitar, and in several cases without drums. Some of the tracks feature drum machine, in a basic, metronomic role.

Bowie doesn't sing very loud for most of the set – in places he's at speech level – but is loud in the mix. As usual his performance is beautifully measured, and he can still hit the hard and high notes on 'The supermen'. I'm not a huge fan of Gail Ann Dorsey's singing, but she does a good job with the second verse of 'Aladdin Sane'. This rendition misses Mike Garson's piano solo but is otherwise great.

The minimal take of 'White light/white heat' is Bowie's best version of the song. The absence of a full band, and the reduction of the drums to nothing more than a four-to-the-bar thud makes the performance more urgent and livid. There's also an appropriately hillbilly reworking of the wife-beating story 'Repetition'.

I have tons of Bowie records, and this is one of the best. It's small-scale without trying to be 'intimate'; Bowie is a star throughout; and some of his lesser-known songs are rethought without being tamed.

Not enough superlatives to describe how good this recording sounds. My copy is faultless.

I've been listening to this on a almost weekly basis since it came out on Spotify, I was very eagerly awaiting the release of this as a vinyl record. So, is it any good? Well, since you can see I've rated this 5 stars, you probably know the answer.
First, let's talk surface noise: What surface noise?
Here's what this record not only does well, but does magnificently well:
Bass, mids, treble, all sounds mostly accurate to what I've been listening to for the past few months.
Dynamics are fantastic, you can really tell that whoever pressed this record truly knows what they're doing, and not only has a love of the source material, but also for the medium.
Of course, the music itself is fantastic, it's Bowie, what else can you expect?

Here's what I didn't like as much:
A paper sleeve for the record? I mean, really? I get that it looks nice and all that, but anti static sleeves should be STANDARD. Not something I have to buy separately.
I said this for 'Is It Any Wonder?', judging by the length of the record, this could have very well been a 45rpm 12 inch disc with increased fidelity.

All in all, a fantastic pressing, and a fantastic album. Seriously, pick it up before it's too late, because this thing is going to be worth so much more in a month or so when these become so much more scarce.
