This leads me to a question for all. I have a CD (and vinyl of course) of Ziggy but the sound quality is not very good. Does any know of a well mastered release? Any digital form, not vinyl.

SACD, CD, MOFI, HDCD, Flac, .WAV DSD... any quality download??

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

I got Heroes as part of a boxed set, there were several I didn't have, this being one of them, don't recall what I paid but it was not cheap. 24K Gold CDs. So... I can't compare it to a regular issue or any other... The set was produced from 20 bit master. Sounds good to me but then I flunked the sonar test in Navy bootcamp Yup, sounding good.

David Bowie HEROES Au20 image, 3 & 4 from the left show the wrap around paper cover over the CD case (2nd from left). The back view has some info on it. A rather expensive proposition if you only wanted this one CD I see someone is selling "Changesbowie", supposedly out of the set, for $60 on Amazon. I say supposedly because the jewel case does not have the Au20 down the left side, just looks like a regular case... Just checked eBay, $80 for Heroes; http://www.ebay.com/bhp/david-bowie-au20-cd?rmvSB=true

Hope you find something to meet your wants,

Ken

The Flock - Dinosaur Swamps




So .......... I know I've seen that image of the Pterodactyl before - deja vu! - Oh Yeah!

Went digging and found this - The Flock is one that I forgot about but bought decades ago because of Jerry Goodman. Another I'm digitizing while I post.
