Offered for sale is a still sealed numbered clear vinyl U.S. pressing of Diamond Dogs by David Bowie, including 2 bonus tracks and a gatefold cover that features the album’s original intended cover art.
This copy is number 2672 of an unknown number of copies.
About this copy: This copy of Diamond Dogs is a 1990 pressing on the Ryko label, issued as part of their short-lived Ryko Analogue series.
All albums in the series were pressed on clear vinyl and were direct metal mastered (DMM.)
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears or holes.
A beautiful copy of a rare David Bowie LP, as this album sold poorly on vinyl when first released.
Background: In the late 1980s, the small Ryko label earned the right to release David Bowie’s back catalog on compact disc. The discs, which were well mastered and which included bonus tracks, were well-received by the public, and this inspired Ryko to produce them on vinyl, as well.
The “Ryko Analogue” series didn’t last long, as stores weren’t interested in stocking vinyl LPs at that time, and the David Bowie albums in that short-lived series are quite rare.
Diamond Dogs includes 2 bonus tracks:
- Dodo (unreleased 1973 track)
- Candidate (demo version)
Released in 1974, Diamond Dogs was the eighth studio album by David Bowie.
The album reached #1 in the UK and #5 in the U.S.
David Bowie fired the Spiders from Mars shortly after the release of Pin Ups, but he didn’t completely leave the Ziggy Stardust persona behind. Diamond Dogs suffers precisely because of this — he doesn’t know how to move forward. Originally conceived as a concept album based on George Orwell’s 1984, Diamond Dogs evolved into another one of Bowie’s paranoid future nightmares. …Diamond Dogs isn’t a total waste, with “1984,” “Candidate,” and “Diamond Dogs” all offering some sort of pleasure, but it is the first record since Space Oddity where Bowie’s reach exceeds his grasp.
