    I managed to find this for my mam at a carboot sale, she was very happy with it. She says she really likes how David Bowie looks on the front, like he is trying to grapple with a really hard maths sum or work out how to operate a complicated microwave.

      sorry but this is not a 40th anniversary picture disc, it's only a picture disc for the record store day 2015

        The offical site stated it's limited to 15,000 not just 6000 likr rsd site said

          Overall, this pressing isn't great, but it's not too bad either. Some minor surface noise and some stray pops in the quiet segments. Popping during the loud parts on side A, but not awful (bigger grooves, more space for dust to get in?). Picture discs are really more to be looked at, and not played, so this serves it's purpose.
          The package isn't great, it had some general guff on it in the store when I got it, and to open it, you need to slice the sticker on top, which will probably give collectors a migraine.

            Is this version of Eight Line Poem available anywhere else? I can't find any other releases that have this "GEM Promo Version"

            Nevermind, it's on the Bombers promo.

              According to Bowie's facebook page there are 15000 of it. So grab it while you can it's very rare...
              It looks great and I'm glad I could get it this year but to call it limited is ridiculous

                What a waste a low fi picture disc wrong label and not a sought-after track was a massive massive seller both as a picture Sleeved RCA Maxi-Single and a later B side,

                Now had this been The Laughing Gnome in its glorious Stereo mix on a retro dinked 4-pin Optional centre pressing then yeah that would be a massive seller, I dont get this at all

                  How can there be three already having that item if RSD is three weeks to go??? This is ridiculous..... for me RSD is every day!

                    Already a copy for sale!? RSD is becoming a bigger and bigger joke every year. Just wait a year and you can get all this overpriced, repackaged crap for half the cost. Record Hype Day 2015.
