David Bowie - Aladdin Sane

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: bowiealadd_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

THE BIG BOWIE SOUND for this wonderful follow-up to Ziggy Stardust! We just finished shooting out a number of imports and domestic pressings of this album, and this British Orange Label pressing was THE KING -- on both sides! This one’s got the kind of "meat on the bones" sound that takes these great glam-rock songs to a whole new level! You won't believe how dynamic the sound is!

David Bowie - David Live

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: bowiedavid_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

The best copies have Live Rock and Roll Energy like you will not believe. The band is ON FIRE. These are the A List players of the day and they gell like a band that's been together for years. The sonic treats include multiple horn players (David Sanborn KILLS on almost every track, and the baritone sax and oboe are rendered beautifully ) and multiple percussionists, all-male chorus background vocals, the seering fuzzed-out guitar leads of Earl Slick, piano and Mellotron by Mike Garson, the amazing Herbie Flowers on bass -- the list goes on.

David Bowie - Diamond Dogs

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: bowiediamo_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The sound on this copy is KILLER. It's incredibly big and open with tons of space around the instruments and wonderfully present vocals. Super rich, full and Tubey Magical yet still clean, clear and spacious -- good luck finding another copy with sound anything like this!

Both sides were shootout winners and earned A+++ grades. This copy was better than the rest of them in every way we could imagine -- livelier, more transparent, cleaner, more present and all that good stuff.

David Bowie - Hunky Dory

Our Shootout Winner from 2014

  (Item #: bowiehunky_2014) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The sound is rich, spacious and sweet with a HUGE soundstage. Drop the needle on Changes and check out how dynamic it is. Side one is where the most popular material for this album is found (Changes, Life On Mars, Oh! You Pretty Things) so this copy definitely a great way to go on Hunky Dory.

David Bowie - Let’s Dance

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: bowieletsd_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D

Another MoFi LP debunked.

The MoFi pressing is decent, probably better than the average domestic copy I suppose, but c’mon, this album is about punchy bass and drums. Since when does any half-speed mastered LP have punchy bass and drums? Blurry blobby bloated bass and drums is more like it. Compressed too.

David Bowie - Let’s Dance

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: bowieletsd_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

This Let’s Dance may look like an ordinary record, but it sure doesn’t sound like one. The sound is OUT OF THIS WORLD! You’re looking at THE Big Beat Demo Disc of All Time. What the Hot Stamper copy of Back in Black was to Super-Fidelity HARD Rock, this White Hot Stamper of Let’s Dance is to Super-Fidelity FUNKY Rock. In other words, this is the FREAKISHLY HOT STAMPER copy that gives you As Good As It Gets, Demo Disc, Mind Altering Sound.

David Bowie - Low

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: bowielow_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This is the first Hot Stamper copy of Low to ever hit our site, and it's a darn good one -- especially on side one, where all the "pop" songs are found. We just had a huge shootout for this album featuring all the copies we've picked up over the years, and this domestic (!) pressing shocked us by blowing away our Brit copies on side one. If you aren't interested in the instrumental Bowie/Eno synth-heavy soundscapes that fill side two, this is THE copy to own.

David Bowie - Pin-Ups

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: bowiepinup_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

We just finished our biggest-ever shootout for this fun Bowie album and this one was DRAMATICALLY better than most other copies. We played copies from all over the world -- England, Germany, France, Canada, and the good ol' USA -- and heard all kinds of bad sound. This one is no Demo Disc (I don't there's a copy in the world that would fit that description) but it's a HUGE step up over just about anything else you could expect to find. The sound is lively, natural, and smooth with all the tubey magic you could ask for.

David Bowie - Station To Station

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: bowiestati_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Here's an amazing White Hot Stamper copy of one of the toughest nuts to crack in the whole Bowie catalog! Full, punchy and present with a wide open soundstage and super dynamics, this is exactly the right sound for this material. This is dense, difficult music, and the typical pressing just can't do it justice! Bowie fans, I'm sure you'll agree this has been a long time coming.

David Bowie - The Man Who Sold The World

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: bowiemanwh_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The sound is rich and full, just the way the Brits like it. The heavy compression that both Bowie and Scott favor works its magic at every turn, adding fatness and richness and lovely harmonics to the guitars and the drums.

David Bowie - Young Americans

Our Shootout Winner from 2007

  (Item #: bowieyoung_2007) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

THE BEST SOUND I HAVE EVER HEARD FOR THIS ALBUM! We’ve been playing this album for years, but we’ve sure never heard it sound like this. Both sides have BIG, FULL-BODIED SOUND that takes this soulful music to an entirely new level.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: bowieyoung_listen) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

The average RCA copy of this album is bright, grainy and hard to some degree, like most RCA pressings I come across. If you've been stuck with an average copy, you're not going to believe how smooth and sweet the best ones sound.

This is one of my favorite Bowie albums. Nobody seems to care about it anymore. They dismiss it as disco junk, but it actually has some of his best music on it. I especially like the song Win. David Sanborn's saxophone sounds like it's coming from 60 feet behind Bowie, a nice effect.

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: bowieziggy_mofi_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: C-

The MoFi pressing is decent, probably better than the average domestic copy I suppose. The colorations and the limitations of their cutting system make it painful for me to listen to though, especially the sloppy bass. Compressed too. You can do worse but you sure can do a lot better.)

MoFi did two of the greatest Bowie albums of all time, Ziggy and Let's Dance, and neither one can hold a candle to the real thing. If you want to settle for a pretty poor imitation of either or both of those albums, stick with your MoFi. If you want to hear the kind of Demo Disc sound that Bowie's records are capable of, try a Hot Stamper.

Simply Vinyl & EMI Debunked

  (Item #: bowieziggy_svlp) 



Sonic Grade: D

This version sounds just like the EMI that came out in the '90s; in short, not very good.

Breaking the Price Barrier in 2007

  (Item #: bowieziggy_2007) 



The following is our 2007 commentary for the best Ziggy Stardust we had ever heard.

This RCA Import has DRAMATICALLY better sound than any Ziggy LP we’ve ever played here at Better Records. Whatever you think you know about the sound of this record, THINK AGAIN. The sound of this copy is so far beyond any expectation I had that hearing it was nothing short of a REVELATION. It's TWO FULL GRADES better than any copy we played in our shootout.

Ater hearing this copy we had to lower our grades for every other pressing we had played. This was a completely new standard.

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

Our Shootout Winning Copy from 2011

  (Item #: bowieziggy_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Is this one of the Greatest Rock Albums of All Time? Unquestionably. It's the pinnacle of Glam Rock. Every track is superb; not a moment is less than stellar from beginning to end.

Is it Bowie's Masterpiece? Absolutely. No other Bowie record ranks higher in my book. No other Bowie record would command a similar price, regardless of its sonic merits.

Is it amazingly well recorded? You better believe it. This is not just Bowie's masterpiece; it's Ken Scott's as well. For BIG, BOLD, wall to wall, floor to ceiling sound, look no further.
