The back cover of David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars carries a very simple message: "To be played at maximum volume." How can one refuse such an invitation like that?
Those who took Bowie up on the offer found themselves enveloped by the sounds of an album that sounded very different than nearly everything that had come prior. 40 years beyond the original 1972 release, Ziggy Stardust is still an engaging listen.
On vinyl, the masterful segue between "Ziggy Stardust" and "Suffragette City" is striking. For every time that we hear "We Will Rock You" into "We Are The Champions" and "Feeling That Way" into "Anytime" on the radio, why does it not make similar sense to segue "Ziggy" into "Suffragette?"
In honor of the 40 years that have passed, Ziggy Stardust is being celebrated with an appropriately lavish anniversary issue that is available in several different configurations, including vinyl.
We've got your chance to win a copy of the newly reissued vinyl edition of Ziggy, which has been remastered on heavyweight vinyl. Additionally, the vinyl edition comes with a bonus high resolution audio DVD which contains extra tracks and both the 2012 stereo remaster, plus 2003 remixes engineered by Ken Scott, who co-produced the original album with Bowie.
