However, aren't so-called "limited editions" identified as such by being numbered?



Not always. A true limited edition will be (and they are usually restricted to about 10,000 copies) but sometimes they'll be given a longer run but one that will eventually be superceded by a standard pressing. The 2CD version of Heathen, for example, is becoming somewhat harder to find and will, eventually, be almost impossible to buy new. However, the standard edition will be around for many more years to come.

Que? [re: diamondogz74]  

In reply to:

I didn't know there was a Spanish performing version of "Day-In Day-Out"



It's called Al Alba and it sounds really bad because it was recorded from a Spanish radio transmission. Unfortunately (or perhaps not), the master tape was destroyed so that low quality copy is likely to remain the only one available.

Lodger [re: trevorgensch]  

The last Bowie album a bought was Lodger, a couple of weeks ago. I had put off buying it because I had heard most of the songs and thought I had the gist of it, but I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful and experimental it is.

Re: What was the *last* Bowie album you bought? new [re: trevorgensch]  

For me it was Tin Machine 2 that completed the back catalogue.
"Baby Universal" is really quite good! The rest...well...it's not as bad as I thought but musically not so interesting.

Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well

Actually, last year an mp3 is superior sound quality and without the DJ overdubs from the spanish DJ did surface. So it's a bit uncertain if the tape was destroyed.

It's also interesting to note that the translation of the track was done by Carlos Alomar.

Although it's known everywhere as Al Alba.

Re: Where do you live... in a cave? new [re: Tristan]  

Yes i agree Tristan it does come in a beautifully designed package ( if only more Bowie releases were to be as well designed?),So you mention that you had all the material already?,But surely you did'nt have the DVD content did you?.
And i agree being a completest myself is darn hard work at times and very expensive.Im left wondering why the American release of BTWN special edition was so highly priced?.
