Very Rare Actual 1973 Japanese First Pressing Still In Nice Condition! Gatefold Cover Includes 4-Page Insert With Lyrics In English & Japanese. An Absolutely Storming Album From David Bowie, Which Includes “Drive-In Saturday”, “Panic In Detroit”, “Cracked Actor” & “The Jean Genie”.
Condition – Vinyl: EXCELLENT! Couple of very light surface marks, which do not affect play. Sounds fantastic!!
Condition – Cover: EXCELLENT! Shelf wear, some age spots / discolouring, but overall in amazingly good condition for a record cover that is over 48 years old ~ especially a white one!!
Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their premium sound quality and beautifully presented packaging. The sonic quality of Japanese records is regarded as the best in the world. No wonder all the original Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab records were pressed in Japan! The covers are printed on better quality heavy stock paper too. Top condition ’70s Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ and therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
