Yes. I always thought it was odd that they only did one and for some reason, chose this.

The remixes on the second disc are superb. No, really! Rather than overbear the original ethos of each track, they have been skillfully updated in a way that doesn't sound too formulaic or contrived. Sure, they sound 'modern' but that doesn't detract... See full review

Interestingly, the spelling error on the spine "Insde" has been corrected on the copies included in newer versions of the box set "Remastered In Vinyl 1".

Really nice mastering on this edition. The vinyl is slightly noisy in silent areas though. What's nice is that they've used the full album versions of most tracks, including the full 7.25 length "Blue Monday" and if I'm not mistaken, the 12" version... See full review

The sound quality is pretty impressive! Minimal surface noise, no clicks or pops.

Fairly pointless edition if you ask me. No extended versions. Black vinyl. Pah!

Oh dear oh dear! The dreaded GZV strike again! Let's hope that the upcoming picture disc sounds better (though that's going to be pressed by them as well!).

Mine arrived with a very deep, 1\2" gouge cut right into the edge of side 2 that renders playing "IT" impossible for the duration of the damage. Boohoo!!!

Beware! Although not stated, "Vincent" is not the original version. It's a re recording and the video sounds very thin and somewhat distant, like a live recording.

In the week of release, my local Sainsbury's had 6 copies. Somehow (and I don't know how this happened) all 6 seals decided to open, and so I checked them all to find out their colour - of the six, only one was blue. That found it's way into my... See full review

Lovely sleeve reproduction, mirroring the original UK 7" single beautifully. Bravo too to the faithful B+W Chrysalis label repro. The clear vinyl isn't the ultra, crystal clear of the original single and boy oh boy, is it noisy! As noisy as some... See full review

All the colours are excellent. However, the green of "ABBA the album" is VERY dark, almost black. Pointless really. And the blue of "Voulez Vous" is dark too, though not black looking like "The Album". People elsewhere have bitched about the quality... See full review

Oh this is totally the business! The pressing is a beautiful clear, light blue vinyl and sonically, very pleasing to the ear. Overall ... a must have!! If this is indeed exclusive to only 1500 worldwide, then it's set to be a major Bowie collectable.
