Offered for sale is a limited edition half speed mastered pressing of the 1983 LP Let’s Dance by David Bowie, issued by Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs.
Let’s Dance, released in 1983, was the 15th studio album by David Bowie. The album was a huge success, reaching #1 in the UK and #4 in the U.S., where it spawned three hit singles – “China Girl,” “Modern Love,” and “Let’s Dance,” which reached #1 on the charts.
Another reason fans like the album is that a then-unknown Stevie Ray Vaughan played guitar.

Every title ever issued by Mobile Fidelity is collectible in its own right; their pressings from 1978 through 1989 were pressed in Japan by JVC on their proprietary Super Vinyl, an exceptionally resilient, dead-quiet vinyl compound, with later issues pressed in the U.S. by RTI on 200 gram vinyl.
These records were mastered at half speed; both the tape and the cutting lathe were run at half the normal speed, allowing the cutting head to cut a more accurate groove in the acetate. The finished product featured dead-quiet vinyl, with improved dynamics, better imaging, and tighter bass. By their very nature, all of Mobile Fidelity’s titles were limited-edition pressings, and Let’s Dance was limited to an unknown quantity of numbered copies
