I heard the news today, oh boy...
Among the other new releases today, (see above and below) you may have overlooked the SACD releases of three classic Bowie albums that we first told you about back in July (07/11/03 NEWS: ZIGGY, SCARY AND DANCE SACDs DUE IN SEPTEMBER) ...and now here we are in September!
You can read all the technical stuff about the releases if you go back and check out that story from July. But I can tell you these three sound superb. You haven't heard Ziggy Stardust until you've heard it in 5:1 surround... well, you have actually, but you know what I mean.
It's hard to beat the sound of Mick Ronson slicing through the air from one speaker to another, while Ziggy sings a few feet in front of you and a couple of Spiders thump away behind you... truly magical stuff.
We will be running yet another contest to win copies of the Ziggy Stardust SACD next week sometime. You will let me know if you're getting fed up with all of these competitions, won't you?
