Just received an e-mail stating that Warners are no longer sending out "Heroes" replacement discs. Anyone else received this? Seems very shoddy indeed.
Me too :( what a shame, Warner, I bought box in this year.
Got the "Heroes" replacement LP. I have Submitted here: David Bowie - "Heroes".
Hast anyone already received a replacement disc or got a response upon his request?
Replacement CD arrived 16 February. Apparently more people requested replacements than they expected and so needed a further supply of discs.
Brian_Damager Hast anyone already received a replacement disc or got a response upon his request? today I received the replacement. all right! my letter of 06.01.2018. LP shipped to Russia. Without problems.
Mine was OK: in a poly lined inner (as they said it would be at the time) but the record is fine.
Had a reply email after 2 weeks. A shipping email 3 days later and the replacement vinyl arrived today. It's in a poly lined inner but unfortunately that's all. In a normal sized LP envelope so the album was an inch out of the inner and rubbing against the cardboard. Otherwise a fairly impressive response from Warners. Better if the erooro hadn't happened in the first place of course...
No - what I mean is that the record has arrived.
yep, i got the same email, we have to be patient.
Arrived in the UK today - requested on 9 December.
Today I got an email from the Warner store customer service with a case number for the replacement. It seems they have a high demand for a replacement.
The replacement sounds good. No drop in the Heroes song anymore, After I mailed for request the replacement took 2 weeks receiving it.
Seems you wont get a response apart from a shipping notice. It may take two-three weeks before your request has been processed.And yes, people have received their replacement discs already, though I do not know yet how it sounds.
Info on requesting a replacement "Heroes" discDetails are here here: http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/warners-issue-update-with-regards-to-heroes-sound-issue-in-bowie-box/
Thanks for that info I'd completely missed this. Email submitted and awaiting a package (I hope)
Just received the replacement. Nice job Warner, Heroes is now proper
No complaints here. Yes Low has that thing but that aside I am very pleased. Love Bowie and all these three box sets. Recall albums could have much more interesting material though but i knew what they would have before I bought each box set. I would recommend this to any Bowie fan. Very pleased to own on vinyl Bowie's best albums with a good sound. 10/10
Anyone knows why the LOW LP have a sticker in the back with the tracklist? some error corrected?
That's the way the first LP edition was. They have tried to re-create the albums as originally released.Label color, fan club brochure, etc.
No it's not an error. It's like the first UK edition.
I really don't know what most of the complains heading for.My Vinylbox Set sounds pretty good, and the "Heroes" issue isn't as bad as most assume.I have all the origin vinyl of Bowie and compared them to the new so-called remaster.Some stuff sounds better in details, some don't.I quite like the new mix of "Lodger", even though I like the old version most.I sometimes believe, that this discussion is more a "religious discussion", rather than a matter of taste, because everyone's taste is different.The only complain is the Recall 3. They should've released "Baal" in its origin design (gatefold cover).And I am not a fan of the "single-versions". They should've taken some other real rare stuff instead, maybe some of the original stuff from the supposed soundtrack of "The Man Who Fell To Earth" would've been very interesting.
I know that. But as we all know, some of the ideas of the soundtrack music, he had used on the later Low album. So that would've been quite interesring to hear the origin ideas.
"The Man Who Fell to Earth" was 76'. Any material from that would have been on WCIBN.
FB post 2017-10-11:""HEROES" ALBUM UPDATEWhile attempts were made to maintain the integrity of the issue that existed on the original master tape of the "Heroes" album, fans’ concerns have been listened to and a new master is being created to replace the current one.As soon as the new file is available, the digital versions will be updated and those of you who would like a replacement "Heroes" album will be eligible for one. Further details on how to obtain your replacement CD and/or vinyl will follow in due course. In the meantime please retain your proof of purchase.Thank you for your continued patience and sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused."
can you link to the facebook page where this refund information will be posted?
Listened to heroes and scary monsters, and compared to the German and UK 1st pressings, these are notably inferior. My initial impression was loud, boomy and lacking low level detail and bass extension (when there was low frequency information in ashes to ashes and fashion that was defined). Really nice packaging, flat vinyl, etc., but so far, a disappointment to my ears. I'm not a millionaire, but I have a high quality setup that is pretty good at pulling a lot of information out of those grooves.
Not crazy about the volume drop on Heroes. That aside, I really think this box sounds excellent, and isn't overly compressed or bass-heavy (at least not on my system, anyway.)
This box set with the Berlin albums has however the lowest dynamic range of all releases.... Still, some albums like 'Low' and 'Scary Monsters' at this set sounds ok-ish.
they cut ordinary 96/24 overcompressed files on vinyl and call it original master tapes, funny guys. The main lesson you can taught them is complete refuse buying these box sets. There is no use in this overcompressed shit and their fancy "remastering" while the original material sounds much better.Also, I want to say that lodger is very weak album itself (probably the weakest, as tasteless tin machine), no need for two crappy albums, just usual rip off. Remember guys, you will be fooled everytime you buy their low quality rubbish.
Lodger is weak ?.. What ?.. What is great then ?
Tin Machine tasteless? Hardly. That's just like your opinion, man.
Haha holy shit I literally cannot believe this got soundchecked. There is no WAY someone checked the files and said "yes the first re-release of these albums in decades and this is how I want it to sound"Absolutely appalling what these wanks think they can get away with
Parlophone respond to David Bowie ‘Berlin’ box set mastering criticisms: http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/parlophone-respond-to-david-bowie-berlin-box-set-mastering-criticisms/“DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN – HEROESConcerning ‘Heroes’ what fans are hearing is not a level drop. This is, through mastering, an attempt to resolve an issue that exists on the original master tape.On the flat unmastered transfer, there was a temporary loss of energy on the track just before 2.50. During the album mastering some high-frequency automation (in the region of +- 6dB) has been added in order to compensate for this. So to clarify, there is not a drop in volume, there is a high frequency boost for a couple of seconds at the loss of energy which then returns to normal and the track continues to the end at a level consistent to the start.As the co-producer of ‘Heroes’ Tony Visconti, was both fully involved and approved the remastering of this and all original albums within the set.DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN – REMASTERINGThe albums contained in A New Career In A New Town are how Tony Visconti, who was not involved in past remasterings, always wanted them to sound. He was previously hampered by the restrictions of vinyl regarding the bottom end.Any tape hiss on the albums comes straight from the original analogue tapes. For A New Career In A New Town, there was no de-noising as had happened on the previous remastering of these records. The hiss is far more true to the sound of the original analogue tapes which Bowie and Visconti would have heard when making the record.”Well, there you have it...
It took me 3 minutes to fix that 2.5db volume drop on "Heroes"... Just saying. Not a volume drop ?? yeah right ! ^^
Maybe it's worth reading the official explanation about the sound since it may resolve some of the accusations.And to whoever said 'it's because of it being pressed from digital files' you clearly have no understanding of how sound behaves as either analogue or digital: if captured correctly at a sufficiently high sample rate/frequency using stable equipment, it is the same. If it wasn't for digital files, you would have next to no records being produced: after all, how many artists record to analogue these days? Answer: none but that doesn't stop many records sounding great.
Lots of artists still recording to analog tape these days. But your point is well taken.
Blame Tony Visconti. If you see him in a bar, don't buy him a beer.
Confirming here clearly, the volume swell then drop on "Heroes" DOES exist on the vinyl. The Heroes album as a whole is a mid-range $hitshow; the once punchy baselines are now buried. Rather then mix and master properly, the volume was simply pushed therefor distorting often. I'm not a fan of Visconti mixes to begin with as they all suffer from someone who has lost a lot of high-end hearing but this is a travesty. He needs to be removed from all things Bowie from here on out, for the love of Bowie.
If anybody bought this on Amazon, it was relatively painless to receive a partial refund. The "Heroes" issue is baffling, like a misspelled sign (do you know how many people it takes to make a sign?) I really dig the Visconti remix of Lodger. Also, Low sounds fine to me. A/B'd it with an original US pressing, and there are definitely some parts where it just sounds...different, but it's not terrible (I will continue to reach for my original pressing). Can't comment on the EP and remixes because I haven't listened and probably never will. Haven't gotten to Scary Monsters yet.
Wait until you do (get to Scary Monsters that is). It’s abysmal so I have sent my entire box back for a refund.
melody of you
I bought it on Amazon and how much of a partial refund did you receive, because if it was a good amount then I might be able to live with this set.
Returned mine as the sound quality is horrendous. This is the problem with re-issues that I have found on a few albums I've purchased, where the EQ is horrible....possibly due to the source being file based rather than tape based as it would have been back in the day....ie analog to analog rather than digital to analog. Given the price of this box set (and the price its now fetching on Discogs and eBay I think I'd sooner source original vinyl from the period and make my own box set.
After reading many comments from everywhere about the lousy sound quality on this box set, I cancelled my order today from amazon uk. Pity.
Reluctantly returned mine today Visconti must have been drunk when he Remastered Low and Heroes. Hopefully this whole set will be recalled very disappointed
WTF??? How can a volume drop in THE track of the Berlin Trilogy "Heroes" happen??? It's even in the file from the iTunes download store...
Apparently Amazon UK have just stop selling this boxset, only available from external vendors. maybe we will get a replacement after all on this one. ^^
... could you please give an information which sides you mean? Thanks!
I thought the same a few minutes ago. Before Heroes I heard Low and was surprised by the sound quality and then the Heroes track failed totally.
While beautifully presented, these box sets have all had problems. The first one is basically unplayable on a few sides. I have tried different copies on different turntables and they are a disaster. Has anyone else experienced this?
To me they did a really bad job on the whole album, it's over compressed most of the time and specially on the first part of "Heroes" which was insane, maybe that could explain the drop in the middle. That's messy. They should re do the mastering on this one, but i'm pretty sure they won't care.
I've just posted this screenshot - https://twitter.com/stephanmathieu/status/914164329733386240Too bad this is also in the 24/96 version, both of the other box sets are rather exceptional sounding in the high res digital formats.
Yep, I got the same also on my 24/96 files and if you look at the waveform it's very significant. I really don't know what happened here. And btw, looking at the waveform, the whole thing doesn't look so good, they went too hard on the compression imo.
