Not sure if this is a glitch or if this is what the site thinks Bowie's 80s music is worth.
This is 125 tracks from the fourth David Bowie boxset. This focuses on his work from 1983-1988.

The physical box is around £99. Amazon & 7digital are not selling digital versions but Qobuz has this same FLAC version for £97.99

qobuz.com/gb-…yub

The £12.49 is for the FLAC version but for a few pounds less you can get an mp3 version at 320 kbps. Just select the required format before you buy.

Here is the list of contents. I think it is worth it for the live concerts.
The eleven CD box, fifteen-piece vinyl set and standard digital download box set is named after the opening track from the ‘Tonight’ album and includes newly remastered versions of David’s most commercially successful period ‘LET’S DANCE’, ‘TONIGHT’, ‘NEVER LET ME DOWN (ORIGINAL and 2018 VERSIONS)’, the live album ‘GLASS SPIDER (Live Montreal ’87)’, the previously unreleased ‘SERIOUS MOONLIGHT’ live album, a collection of original remixes entitled ‘DANCE’ and the non-album/alternate version/b-sides and soundtrack music compilation RE:CALL 4.

Exclusive to each of the box sets is ‘NEVER LET ME DOWN (2018)’, a new production of the 1987 album. The seeds of this reimagining of the album were first sown in 2008 when David asked Mario McNulty to remix the track ‘Time Will Crawl’ and record new drums by longtime Bowie drummer, Sterling Campbell, along with strings. The track was issued on the iSelect compilation to much acclaim, and in the notes, for that record, David remarked ‘Oh, to redo the rest of that album’.

Fast-forward to early 2018 McNulty entered Electric Lady Studios in New York with Sterling, Tim Lefebvre on bass, who was in the ★ (“Blackstar") band and Reeves Gabrels and David Torn on guitars. All of the musicians had a history with David, so were a perfect fit for what now sound like brand new songs. Nico Muhly, whom Mario first met when they were both interns working for Philip Glass in 2001, has handled the string arrangements.

The re-workings have revealed ‘Never Let Me Down’ as a very strong collection of songs with a dark thematic thread running through them. Fans listening to ‘NEVER LET ME DOWN (2018)’ would be forgiven for thinking that they were listening to a brand new ‘lost’ Bowie record.

This 2018 version of the album will also feature newly 'remixed' artwork reflecting the album’s subject matter and features unseen images from the original cover photographic session from the archive of Greg Gorman.

Also in each box is the never before released ‘SERIOUS MOONLIGHT’ live album recorded in Vancouver, in 1983. Originally mixed at the time by Bob Clearmountain, the double album captures Bowie on what at that time was his most successful tour. The artwork features shots taken by photographer Denis O’Regan.

Also included is the 2CD / 3LP GLASS SPIDER (LIVE MONTREAL ’87) album, making its debut on vinyl (which is exclusive to the LP box). The tour’s innovative set and marriage of music and theatre has been cited as a big inspiration to acts in the 2000’s. Speaking in 1991 about Glass Spider Bowie said, “It was the first time I'd had the opportunity to spend that kind of money and do shows like that! The first time since Diamond Dogs, anyway...I thought, right! Let’s really spend some money! I had all these thwarted dreams of what I'd tried to do with rock 'n roll in the early '70s”.

Exclusive to each box is ‘RE:CALL 4’ and ‘DANCE’. The former a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles, album edits, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks such as Labyrinth, Absolute Beginners and When The Wind Blows. ‘DANCE’ features 12 contemporaneous remixes some of which are appearing on CD and vinyl for the first time and is named after an unreleased Bowie remix album that was originally slated for release in November 1985.

I think you tagged "glitch" by accident...
I don't know if it is a glitch or not. We will see if the price goes up in the next day or so.
Think we’ve crashed the server on this one
update: seems to have accepted order now

Priceless (in a worth a lot sense)
Put "Glitch" in the title.... instant heat... The Man Who Sold The World.

£12.49 isn’t a glitch. It’s not physical media
Love Bowie, hate the word "glitch" (when it's tenuous)
I can see why this would be seen as a typical price, especially for those who either torrent or use legitimate streaming services. Very few people buy digital music these days. Personally I use a dedicated mp3 player (Sansa) rather than my iPhone.
I would say however given that the price is £97 on another site, this is at least a good deal.
Things get pulled from streaming sites for various reasons but you can have this to keep in your hard drive for around 10p per track.

Tidal prices:

$64.99/MP3
$116.99/FLAC

In future call it a possible misprice
Not Hi-Res, standard price.
Cheers OP, shame the previous 2 box sets aren't available at a low price.

Yeah, I'd agree. Glitch is more like code stacking when it should only be one code. Or a code taking off pounds instead of percentage. Or some other discount being calculated incorrectly when applied (by the customer).

This is just the price of the item without any misconfigured discount codes to apply.

Ace deal though!

Regardless of the cost as a big Bowie fan I was looking down my nose at this release, but had it on the last few days ( Spotify ) and you can't help but be impressed with the amount of content here, even if a lot of it on the surface seems repeated.
Showing as £9.16 now. Huge Bowie fan but his stuff after scary monsters and before outside was truly terrible
Thanx OP
Link no longer works.
This was a HUGE bargain - and clearly a mistake.

Standard MP3 is £60.99 on Amazon.

Fair enough. What's your definition of a glitch?
@last poster It looks like it's been pulled and you should at the least be refunded for it. It seemed to get quite a bit of exposure beyond here

I'm really tired and I've found the zip folders. I must have moved them from my download folder after downloading during the night the deal went live. Didn't spot them at first in the music folder I use this evening. Then found them there. That's why I decided to delete my post. Had a really stressful week, and not much sleep. I've done some daft things like this, this week.

However, the album related downloads are not available in my account. The downloads section is just blank. The order number and order information is there under my orders. They may have pulled the album from the store.

Glad I've found the albums and songs.. hope there aren't going to be any errors with the downloads, when I start listening to them.

I wasn't questioning why you deleted it I was going to reply, but got distracted looking it up and following a Google trail...Before I knew it you'd deleted your post and I'd downloaded it free whilst researching it
I'm not a massive Bowie fan but I can appreciate the value in this
I paid but haven’t downloaded yet. it’s still available in my account though.
Hope they do same thing with Kate Bush remasters

Thanks for looking into it and your help. I probably should have just edited that post and put 'Ignore this comment'. I didn't want fellow members to spend time trying to help; as I had sorted it. As the comment had only gone live a few minutes, I thought it could be deleted without anyone noticing it. You were quick

I like some of Bowie's stuff and this was a cheap deal. Years ago I was given as a present, a DVD of Bowie songs and music videos. The Dancing in th Street music video with Mick Jagger, always makes me laugh from their dancing antics and facial expressions.

This deal reminds me of the Pink Floyd massive album mp3 collection, which I got via a deal posted on here, from Amazon.

The Flac files in the compressed folders are randomly stored. Something like song 99 is found in compressed folder 4. Bit odd how the folder contents are a bit random.

Haven't started listening to it all yet. I have ended up with 125 songs Hopefully all fault free.
Heard back from Juno customer services. They've added the songs so they appear again in my account. I'm pleased as it did not take long to get a reply to my enquiry.
