Sweet
Got last copy at local Best Buy today, this is beautiful looking package. It is really a CD size hard bound book with 40 pages of very cool photos and info. The graphics on CD are also much cooler, this EMI/Virgin remaster is best sound ever for this classic. The thin hard treble of previous versions has been better balanced with more body added to treble, very good sound now for 1972 rock recording.

Buy this now you fools!..............also someone please buy my old Virgin remaster for sale at half.com

Whats on the bonus Cd DA?
I thought you would never ask, 12 tracks in total. Ziggy album is the pinnacle of glam-rock........the velvet goldmine.

First two Arnold Corns early acoustic versions before Ziggy album
-moonage daydream
-hang on

Next more acoustic versions
-lady stardust
-ziggy stardust

next you have various non album band material
-john, i'm only dancing
-velvet goldmine
-holy holy
-amsterdam
-supermen

then you have a Chuck Berry rock-a-billy tune
-round and round

then we have
-sweet head
-moonage daydream ( this is an inferior remix of album track for TV commercial)

When you read the 40 page book interesting that Bowie was able to do many vocal tracks in one take. Also very interesting
how Bowie and Mick Ronson collaborated and their great synergy, Bowie would often draw pictures and symbols to illustrate musical direction of song, and Rono would improvise and fill in the pieces.
I want to again repeat this remaster is the best sound ever for this classic CD..........BTW my old copy already sold at half.com.
