Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of David Bowie’s 1980 LP, Scary Monsters.

After three albums of largely experimental music, David Bowie returned to more or less “normal” rock in 1980 with Scary Monsters.

Allmusic.com rates it as one of his best, saying:

Though it doesn’t have the vision of his other classic records, it wasn’t designed to break new ground — it was created as the culmination of Bowie’s experimental genre-shifting of the ’70s. As a result, Scary Monsters is Bowie’s last great album. While the music isn’t far removed from the post-punk of the early ’80s, it does sound fresh, hip, and contemporary, which is something Bowie lost over the course of the ’80s.

The copy offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing on the orange RCA label.  The cover is VG++, with just light traces of wear.  The record is M- and appears to have had little, if any, play.  The lyric insert is included. The obi is missing.
