      3 out of 160 releases of this album are listed as gatefolds.
      Does anyone know if any other pressings are gatefolds and just don't have that specification on their submission?

          My copy is UK pressing, Japanese poly-lined deluxe RCA inner, lyric sheet insert, US stamp sheet, matte cover. If only it was purple...!!!

            A new repress is coming out on February 23 and that was remastered in 2017, and it will be on a 2 disc LP, so not sure if it will be better than the original.

              For me ashes to ashes remains the most emotional, beautiful song , that bowie did in his long carrier.

                There a tons of counterfeit 're-issues' allegedly Made in Portugal currently flooding the market these days. Easy to spot because the cover has some serious printing issues - most notably on the back side where the green is just way off (original is also green but much less saturated).

                  Should someone change the title of it to "Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)"?
