Anyone else notice the labels are misprinted? The sleeve has the correct tracklisting for side 3, with “Fame” first, followed by “Beauty and the Beast” closing the side. Meanwhile the label incorrectly lists them backwards, with “Beauty and the Beast” as track 4, then followed by “Fame” as track 5.
Error parents
for me the best live recording of the master. better then the stage, more dynamic, all.are on fire. the intro to station is breathtaking and heroes never sounded better. a must have.
Is it an upgrade to the soundboard bootleg that has been circulating for a few years now?
Easily one of the best live Bowie recordings ever. Best part is hearing Zappa introduce Bowie in the opening rap to TCV15 - this taking place right after Adrian Belew left the Zappa tour to join Bowie's outfit.
A fantastic trip down Memory Lane. Even better than the 2017 3-LP version of STAGE. Buy both of them!
Is there any record of which song is from which show?
2 shows - June 30 and July 1. I am asking if there is any info about which of the 2 nights the songs came from.
Does there seem to be any quality issues with this pressing? The whole set sounds phenomenal to me, except for about midway through side 4 (at around “Star”). A lot of static and hiss during those tunes... but it’s not apparent on any other side of the three LP set for me. Maybe I just got an unfortunate shoddy pressing? I did manage to have all three of the correct LPs (I’ve been seeing that some folks wound up with duplicates) so at least there’s that,
My local record store in Ashford, Kent just got a new shipment of RSD stock... not entirely sure how that works, but I've had one of these put aside at £34.99... makes me doubt the original limited numbers though!!
I think this was classed as a RSD release, rather than a RSD limited edition. So no limit to numbers - CD version is also out now as well.
What limited numbers?! Label hasn't disclosed this year, So your suspicions are well founded.
How many of this album was pressed upon release for RSD ???
They must've pressed a large amount, because I see copies of this everywhere I go. Every record store I go to has several in stock.
I would say at least 3k based on the number of haves here. lol
They didn't disclose the numbers this year, so probably about 100,000 lol
I'm fortunate enough to have the 3 right discs in the package.
I just opened my copy due to reading some of the reviews earlier about mis-presses and duplicate lps, and am happy to say that mine is fine. Records all sound great, no defects and the labels are all correct. This is also a fine press, as the sound mix is pretty darn good for a show that's 40 years old. LP cover is a nice tri-fold sleeve with high quality record inner sleeves. As for the music, well, this is classic BOWIE that is a must have for any fan.
I'm in the same boat as you are. From an audio quality viewpoint, I personally think the pressing plays wonderful.
Does anyone know what the srlp was for this release?
I wonder what the distribution numbers are on this release?! I understand Parlophone haven't given any info this year.
Noticed the label on record 2 (3/4) has Fame and Beauty and the Beast in the wrong order.
Why can't they get this right? It's not rocket science doh.
Anyone else get a mispackaged version? I ended up with Side 3/4 twice. :(
I'm in St. Louis MO. It is seems odd that a major label, making a special RSD pressing of a unreleased concert would allow such messed up copies to exit the plant. Where's the quality control. Sorry to anyone who does have duplicate records.
I hope you and everyone affected can get a replacement with no hassle. Best wishes.
Thanks bbark01. My LRS is trying to get me the 3rd LP. They told me I was the only one who has reported this issue. Bad luck I guess :(
Aron75, I don't know if this will help but the first thing I'd do is contact the store you purchased it from. Small chance, but they may be able to help, or at least tell you your next step, which I would say is probably contacting the record label.
I just opened my copy. I have two sides 3 & 4. I played them both to make sure and indeed they are identical. No side 5 & 6. What can I do about that?
My copy is the same way ! Thanks Neaton77 for posting about them being the right discs with the wrong labels. I was on the verge of a minor freak out when I opened my copy. Out of all the RSD 2018 purchases, this was the one I wanted the most, and saved it for last to open. I'm curious, what country and state are you guys in who got the mislabeled copies, and just how widespread these got? I haven't heard anyone else in other forums talking about the issue. I'm in Atlanta, GA.Beyond that, great sounding recording, and my copy is very nice.
Mine is the same way. But I'd advise you to take a real close look at the vinyl. Lay them side by side, my 2 records have different number of tracks and track lengths. The record that is really 3/4 the tracks are labeled wrong as well. I hadn't seen full track list until this listing came up. This the case with my copy. I was also very displeased when I first opened it up today. Hope yours is the same as my copy. On the positive side, if yours is like mine we have a label variation which would be more rare. Or they're all like this and the pressing plant was just dumb that day. Good luck
Very interesting to read the credits and finding that this was mixed and essentially ready for release in 1978. Curious how Sound and Vision and TVC15 were apparently mixed for this release, considering that Sound and Vision was released in the mid-90's on that RarestBowieOne compilation from Main Man. Anyway, it's an amazing performance, definitely better than Stage in my opinion, as you can tell that by the end of the tour, the band was really in their element and the performances have more passion. The intro of Station To Station is one of the highlights for me.
The mix for Sound & Vision on "RarestONE" is more of a rough mix, the guitars are a bit out of tune and Bowies vocal isn't very well sung, mixed or placed in the mix. So that mix was not meant for release it's more of "rough listen-to-mix" - before the real mix or no mix. They probably deemed it to shaky of a performance to use it for whatever it was Bowie & D. Richards mixed almost the whole concert for. It is very easy with todays technology to tune the guitars and fix Bowies vocal - therefore it was used on this release! Defries also used the mono mix of All the Young Dudes on RarestOne. The stereo mix didn't turn up before years later.
Awesome album great sound quality and yeah should have been released years ago, but have to admit my favourite Live albums are still Have to be Robin Mayhews soundboard Ziggy at Hammersmith 1973 and Reality Tour 3 Record set. this is a very close 3rd..
One of those albums you wonder why they hell it wasn't released before. Best official Bowie live LP I've heard to date. Simon House in particular really shines through on this. Stealing him from Hawkwind was a bit shit of Bowie, as Hawkwind were never quite the same till he rejoined in the late 80s.
A fabulous album indeed. Superb packaging and the audio quality is tremendous...Bowie produced it himself! It gave me goosebumps! Bowie is amazing in this 1978 London recording. Price here in New Zealand was NZ$79.99 and worth every dollar. Get yourself one!
maybe it's more expensive in NZ because of the country being far from the manufacturing plant in Europe?
Edit Rsd 21/04/18 19:02 :Have : 577want : 77
Maucage the way how is the sound quality (for those who have listened to it) ?Live in Berlin was pretty bad, hence my question
  tom : check the Bowie facebook page there's a snippet of a few seconds, everything indicates that it's even better than Stage, more room
I got one today, and I'm almost afraid to unseal it. How much better is it than the bootleg of the same concert? (Added to "videos.")
AMAZING QUALITY, It's an official release obviously, so I would rate it higher than the Stage 2017 version because it also has 2-3 extra tracks as well. Overall, worth the wait in line.
