David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust 40th Anniversary 180g vinyl LP + 5.1 DVD only £14.06 (pre-order) delivered @ Amazon + Nectar
I just pre-ordered the Limited Edition Ziggy Stardust 40th Anniversary 180g vinyl album (with bonus DVD containing hi-res, multi-channel audio and bonus track content) for £14.06 delivered. This seems like an excellent price; especially as HMV are selling it for £28 and the recent Pink Floyd Immersion Boxset included tat for a premium price! Here's what you need to know about it:
1) The 180g Vinyl 2012 Remaster has been mastered from the original 1/4" analogue tapes.
2) The DVD contains the following hi-res, multi-channel audio and bonus track content:
-----(i) a hi-res 2.0 2012 Remaster mastered from the original 1/4" analogue tapes,
-----(ii) 5.1 (DTS 48/24 + DD) and 2.0 (48/24 LPCM) mixes of the entire album,
-----(ii) four bonus tracks with 5.1 (DTS 48/24 + DD) and 2.0 (48/24 LPCM) mixes.
1) There has been NO digital processing applied to either the LP or hi-res 2.0 DVD 2012 Remaster mixes.
2) The lo-res 5.1 and 2.0 DVD mixes are based on the 2003 SACD release.
3) The bonus tracks are Moonage Daydream (Instrumental), The Supermen, Velvet Goldmine and Sweet Head.
4) The DVD appears to be a regular DVD and not a DVD-A. If however, it is a DVD-A, then some, if not all of the content might not play on a DVD Player (or similar device) if it doesn't natively support DVD-A playback.
5) The CD release doesn't include a bonus DVD.
6) Amazon's release date is 4th June.
