I got two presentation packs and two Edinburgh packs. I still have a couple of sets from a few years ago when they did the Ziggy ones. It didn't feel as much of a cash in than as it does now!

I also have a set of Pin Ups ones which aren't legal tender, but they're money in the bank anyway!

I think it is a great tribute...not a cash in.

They've actually correctly reproduced the "I don't know where I'm going..." quote too.


Weird that the multi album sheet omits Buddha and Young Americans, but leaves a space to put in a Starman lyric.

the LP peeking out at the side. Would have been better with just the album cover artwork in my humble . . .

The reason i reckon Young Americans was omitted is the cigarette.

Buddha? Still not a db album in the public's eyes?

Sound of the devil, breaking parole.

"The reason i reckon Young Americans was omitted is the cigarette. "

We wouldn't want to encourage impressionable ageing Bowie fans to start smoking.

buddha is considered a soundtrack. if you look up the discography on wiki they don't count it as a studio album...indeed young americans could have been omitted for just that stupid reason

I seem to remember that they airbrushed out the fag in Pollock's mouth on US stamps?

Don't know why it's left out so often as the music was re-arranged for the album so was not really a "soundtrack".

The Fan Sheet is spoiled for me with the omission of this album. Deliberate because of the cigarette or a big bloomer?
