Annotation

This 30th anniversary 2CD edition has

* swapped stereo channels
* muffled sound on some tracks (notably Suffragette City)
* missing starting piano note attack on Lady Stardust
* missing « one, two » count‐in at the start of Hang On to Yourself
* missing the little tiny three‐note guitar lick at the end of Ziggy Stardust. It’s faded out so that this track no longer flows into the next track, Suffragette City
* low sound quality on 'Round and Round’s mix/take on bonus disc (same as the Rykodisc bonus track ?) compared with the one on Drive‐in Saturday B‐side (original) and Rare'' compilation

There is only one partially fixed edition of the 30th anniversary edition : The Japanese ♣ (leaf symbol) edition.
