Your weekly Bowie piece helped me so much. Bought today in Melbourne Australia, I got a clear one!. David says:. Ordered 4 from Amazon when announced and got 2 clear and 2 black!

Craigy says:. Stuart says:. That is pretty poor — just press it on clear vinyl! The original inner sleeve square dedicated to the Bowie fan club is replaced by the track listing for side one.
The original inner sleeve square dedicated to the Peter and the Wolf album is replaced by the track listing for side two. Finally, there is no credit included for On Broadway at the end of Aladdin Sane on the vinyl label. The LP) RCA pressing featured this. I was pleased to receive a blue vinyl copy of the update. I think I prefer iSelect to Twilight.
Thanks for the mention Andrew. Did anyone notice the jpc. Received my copy today, and it is blue indeed! The Aladdin Sane silver vinyl looks nice though, wonder how much HMV will inflate that to, their prices are becoming ridiculous.
This one is confusing, I think, in that it includes early tracks too, rather than picking up from onward. It makes this more of a random mix of album tracks and singles, with not clear time period focus.
But, so it goes. Paul, ChangesTwo was actually a last minute replacement for an album Bowie had compiled called Twilight. I think I will pass …. I wonder if, given the PC and revisionist world we live in, they were tempted to take the cigarette away in the cover photo?
It looks like he is holding a cigarette that has been put out. It is not actually lit. Maybe he just fished it out of a tray. I think complaining is the only thing left to do, it might give them such a bad name that they pass the catalogue over to a company that will do it right. Are the single edits even correct or just approximations of the originals? Especially if you consideras Paul pointed out, Two includes songs from the early 70s.
This was the first Bowie album I bought and I thought it was amazing and it opened the doors to me for Bowies great albums. I will buy it on vinyl for sure to have a nice new copy. If I get a blue one even better.
I say the album was released in and that it was only ever released on CD in for a short period etc. Aladdin Sane silver vinyl? Again — SOLD! Definitely the worst Bowie compilation released. I would prefer it was released in a jewel case though, just so that it matches the ChangesOne remaster and they can sit side by side on the shelf without looking out of place. Congratulations to everyone who does want this. Somehow never bought this compilation but might to go with my original changesone, but only at well under a tenner.
It was easy to check the Changes vinyl to see if if was clear or black — this one probably will be difficult so its a stupid idea — of course i could just open them all in HMV and have a look! Although I think the bare-bones reissue of ChangesOneBowie was also a digipak?
If so, they would at least LP) up with each other, instead Diamond Dogs - David Bowie - ChangesOneBowie (Vinyl being a sore thumb in the Bowie collection on my shelf.
So maybe I will bite after all. ChangesOneBowie was, and is, in a digipack in Europe and jewel case in the USA so they match in their respective territories. I loved changesonebowie and it got me into Bowie at the time of release, but I was also puzzled by the song choices, no Starman and no Life on Mars. I thought the track listing for changestwobowie even stranger with, as Paul says, songs from Hunky Dory, Ziggy, Aladdin Sane and Diamond dogs, but nothing from Heroes.
In speculation here. I hope they release Bowie Rare. My copy got sold off years ago. A new clean version would be a great edition. The RCA disc is a very tough pull and these compilations were part of my early Bowie education. Huge Bowie fan — but no interest in this. Would anyone who owns the recent box sets really need the cd, if the versions are the same as on the boxsets. I can understand people wanting the rca version, but not this one.
I bought this on cassette back in the mid-eighties. It was the first Bowie album that I owned and it is a cool album cover. However, I can see no purpose whatsoever for buying this reissue. I prefer to listen to music instead of collecting it and I own all of these songs already.
I think changes two was issued more than once as its in y Bowie time life collection of all albums up to scary monsters. The record company have effectively turned these Changes LP releases into the vinyl equivalent of that awful football sticker nonsense that blighted my school — remember how idiots bought packs of random stickers in the hope of getting some deliberately very limited thing — then they swapped them endlessly, then talked about swapping them endlessly — they really could bore for England!
Would I come across as too cynical if I suggested the choice of Black and Blue was less for historical or aesthetic reasons and more to make it impossible to shine a torch through the sleeve and ascertain Diamond Dogs - David Bowie - ChangesOneBowie (Vinyl the colour inside might be? What is the obsession with putting things in Digipacks or worse soft card sleeves? The only way to solve this is….
With the card sleeves, of course, along with all that the discs get scuffed pulling them in and out of the sleeves. The only way to solve that is…, LP).
Anyone would think creating a product that is easily damaged was a deliberate ploy to make people buy multiple copies. So, the silver vinyl Aladdin is probably one of the ever-increasing number of Bowie releases for RSD. RSD has become a real pain or nuisance or con for multiple reasons on top of any irritations about the products they might be selling.
When it started RSD was kinda fun — not many releases so not hugely expensiveyou could potter down mid-morning and everything was still available, in the one shop the staff were friendly, helpful, and provided cupcakes and there was live music if that was your thing. Then it changed: huge numbers of releases, huge numbers of people, vast secondary selling market, and a requirement to stand in a queue from the early hours… in the cold… and wet… and, two years ago, the snow.
Not fun. When it started there were two indie record shops in my local town 10 miles away — then 3 or so years ago one closed down. This meant the second nearest indie shop was around miles away. This level of mark-up was repeated across their range of RSD titles. I made up my petrol and parking costs on just that one purchase — but not the 2 hours extra journey time! As I hinted above my health is knackered: I also have a worsening painful spinal injury and arthritis that causes me problems standing.
Now, if you want RSD titles you have to queue unless you have vast reserves of cash for eBay! Even sauntering up after the shops involved have opened means queuing for an hour or so to get in.
Unsurprisingly, I do not see people with walking sticks, crutches, or wheelchairs at RSD events — the queues, packed stores, and so on are exclusionary. And that local shop not only costs more, has unfriendly staff, a tiny premises, an utter misery of an owner who last RSD I went there spent the entire time talking to one of his mates right in the doorway….
Last year I queued for about hours better weather thankfully and guzzling painkillers to keep upright. The consequence was being bearly able to walk for the next three or so days.
Now, RSD is ill-thought through, over-priced, under-regulated, and exclusionary. RSD is no fun, no fun at all. The gold vinyls of Hunky Dory and Ziggy are still readily available. And who knows there may still be plenty clear vinyl Changesone out there. But then, who really cares? One should buy this because one loves the product and not much as an investment.
Yes they are redundant but I was introduced to Bowie by the vinyls. Or Why bother? On this page. If you feel like that then please go find another blog. It sounds really cool and classy but the actual colour is rather disappointing.
They just sit there. But I guess they are moving enough of them to keep printing new albums in this manner. This is what music buying has become — complaints about the shade of yellow and silver?
I was lucky enough to draw a clear copy of ChangesOneBowie, which was a nice treat. It would be nice to get a blue copy, but if I draw a black one, oh well. I ending up buying 5 copies before finding a clear vinyl copy of changesonebowie : The black ones were great gifts for friends that just love the music.

This is my favourite Bowie album and I shall buy a copy of the red vinyl re-release. Why are so many people whingeing about another package?
