If only! Sadly, the £25 is a DEPOSIT price.

The actual price from whatrecords at the moment is £169.99

Still - cheaper than Amazon, whose price has just gone up

I must admit I'm tempted...

RE: David Bowie
Is this going to be the next stage of the 24 bit releases then? I'd assume so.

amazon are trying it on.
It was £177 inc free delivery when first listed cheaper than whatrecords when you add the £8 P&P to the £169.99 .
I do like Tim and he pays his taxes.
As a independent he does a brilliant job fighting the majors and hope he continues to do so.

Yes, although neither of the 24 bit options include the 'Recall 3' collection of rarer material. Also, Lodger (Tony Visconti 2017 mix) is not included in the 192/24 digital box set but does form part of the 96/24 package. Allegedly "content varies from other formats due to the resolution of the available original source material".

Full details for the 24 bit versions are provided at Davidbowie.com as follows:

Digital download 192kHz/24bit box set:
Low (remaster)
“Heroes” (remaster)
“Heroes” E.P.*
Stage (original) (remaster) *
Stage (2017) (remaster)
Lodger (remaster)
Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) (remaster)

Digital download 96kHz/24bit box set:
Low (remaster)

Yup, just re-read the full listing. Very misleading if you ask me. Why have the same product listed twice. They should have been clear and shown the full price.

Order cancelled. Sad

RE: David Bowie
Mozart,
Did you really think you could buy the vinyl box set for £25 ?
It was made very clear the £25 was the deposit order.
Tim has always offered large box set preorders this way so people don't have to shell out the full price straightaway on a preorder.
The whatrecords special price preorder has gone up now.
Amazon's first listing price of £177 has also gone up to £199.99
