Actual 1980 Japanese First Pressing Pressing ~ Still In Top Condition! Includes 4-Page Insert With Lyrics In English & Japanese. Very Well Preserved For An LP That Is Almost 40 Years Old!
Featuring contributions from Pete Townshead, Robert Fripp, Roy Bittan and others, ‘Scary Monsters’ is an amazing album, which includes hit singles “Ashes to Ashes” and “Fashion”. Bowie achieved what biographer David Buckley called “the perfect balance”: as well as earning critical acclaim, the album peaked at #1 in the UK and restored David Bowie’s commercial standing in the US.
In 2000 Q magazine ranked Scary Monsters at #30 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. In 2002 Pitchfork Media placed it #93 in its Top 100 Albums of the 1980s. In 2012, ”Slant” Magazine listed the album at #27 on its list of “Best Albums of the 1980s”.
Condition – Vinyl: NEAR MINT!
Condition – Cover: VERY GOOD PLUS! Some shelf wear, discolouring from age on white areas.
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. Near Mint condition Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer — therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
