“Just about the best you can hear”

Back in the first week of this month, the Top 10 biggest selling vinyl albums of 2012 were announced by The Official Charts Company in the UK.

And, as you may already know, David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars was placed at #2 on that chart.

In celebration of that fine achievement, EMI has kindly donated ten copies of the 40th Anniversary Vinyl/DVD Edition, along with an A4 print of Mr Stardust himself taken by Brian Ward, the man responsible for the original Ziggy album cover shoot.

This 40th Anniversary edition of Ziggy Stardust was remastered by original Trident Studios’ engineer Ray Staff and reviews of the release single out just what a great job he has made of it, with everybody in agreement that the recording hasn’t sounded better since its original release in 1972.

Check out the tracklisting for both the vinyl and DVD over at EMI Catalogue.

For your chance to win this Ziggy Stardust Vinyl/DVD/Print package, go to the contest page.

The competition ends at midnight UK time on 31st January 2013. Winners will be notified directly, shortly afterwards.
