I’ve just posted this in another thread and I’ll post it here for those who missed. The tape dropout during the English version of “Heroes” in the most recent Bowie box has been addressed and replacement discs are available free of charge from Warners.
I won’t link to the SDE site as it breaks the AW, so here’s the text.
The record label have issued the following statement:
We can now confirm that the “Heroes” audio has been updated via all digital download and streaming partners. CD and LP discs (in a plain sleeve) will be ready to ship week commencing 11th December.
Those who have bought the ANCIANT box set and would like an updated disc of “Heroes” should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email should contain the following info:
• SHIPPING ADDRESS (and any delivery instructions)
• EMAIL ADDRESS
• PHONE NUMBER (required by some delivery providers)
• FORMAT PURCHASED (CD or LP)
• PROOF OF PURCHASE (email attachment / photo / scan / screen grab / etc.)
Please ensure that you limit the content of your email to these details only so that the Warner Music Customer Services team can process your order as quickly and efficiently as possible.
