    wouldn't give you $1 for it. as i say, if that album works for you then you needn't spend big to get what you want.

    Not discussing this anymore with you.....you have made your point. I get it, you are the be all end all of Bowie vinyl :rolleyes:;)

    Wouldn't have asked about earlier pressings if I wasn't planning on getting them.

    Enjoy your night/day, whatever time it is for you

    I’m confused. You asked for advice on earlier analog pressings, and then immediately grabbed two new digital remasters known to have severely reduced dynamic range and poor editing issues. When someone tries to help, you get defensive about it. If it’s really more about just getting the cheapest thing you can find...why not just listen on Spotify?

    That really is a strange reaction to the advice you were asking for.

    First off I asked for advice to get early analog pressings because I want to get earlier analog pressings.....what's so hard to understand about that??? Seems pretty simple and straight forward to me. I think my 7 year old would understand. :confused:

    B, I got them before asking for the advice....hence the reason I asked

    Third.....Because I'm the first person to buy multiple pressings of the same albums on here?

    D - No one ever said anything about the cheapest I could find.....that would be streaming which I only do in work. Recently spent $100+ on a porcupine tree record....certainly don't cheap out. Forgive me if I don't feel like searching for originals and wanted to know of good, earlier represses/reissues

    Lastly, I don't use Spotify but I have already listened to things on tidal.....again....I must be the first person on here to get multiple pressings of the same album. Weird precedent I have set. I sure hope no one else makes that mistake! :D

    No....it's a reaction to repeated "snobbish" remarks on the new vinyl after I already got the advice I wanted....from people who didn't feel the need to act that way. I didn't feel like going through a circle jerk of debating so I decided to be a wiseass/sarcastic....stop taking things so seriously...hence the emoticons. Did I set a precedent with being a wiseass/sarcastic as well?? ;)

    Sorry if people got offended, Jesus

    Your attitude in your last few postings stinks - sounds like you don't really need any help from the rest of us if you're going to start mouthing off like that - I politely suggest you exercise more restraint and composure in your replies in future...

    The Bowie catalog is too much of a mess to reccommend a particular batch or campaign. Sometimes the German RCA is best, sometimes the Japanese RCA, sometimes the Ryko, sometimes the new remaster. Too many options to form a consensus.

    Apologizing is stinky attitude?

    Didn't realize we all had to be 150% serious all the time on here and that everyone except me can be offended. Noted.

    My sincere apologies for any misunderstanding.

    You don't have to be 150% serious on here all of the time but your tone has hardly been apologetic until now, more attacking the very people who were offering to help you.

    We're all on the same side here, at the end of the day everyone wants the best sound quality possible without breaking the bank.

    I wasnt attacking anyone.

    I apologized above when I realized people were offended.....On an earlier post I sincerely said have a good night after I ended my sarcastic comment with emoticons indicating such. I got asked a really stupid question and responded with sarcasm, again indicating such with emoticons. I got responses acting like I am an idiot that doesn't know what he talking about (which is far from the truth).

    I shouldn't be made to feel awkward and unwelcome asking a simple question and having discussions on here even though I don't post wave forms and charts and am not looking for perfection like some (which is what I meant by "everyone else can be offended but I can't?") If I wanted to be a dick I would have been a dick.....trust me, that wasn't me being a dick.

    If you look back at all the recommendations I received I replied and I tried to thank people personally. Whoever I missed was because I didn't want to overload the thread, I can't get the multiple quote posting to work.

    Like I said, it was a complete misunderstanding. But I will take the responsibility and apologize.

    I am starting to see that.....Just trying to get best bang for buck and it seemed like there were a couple recommendations. I enjoy him but he isn't one of my top favs where I am willing to go nuts. After that, who knows, I may branch out even more the more I listen to his music. I tend to create my own rabbit holes haha
