A very rare Japanese album entitled "Best Deluxe" - boldly signed in Tokyo at the Park Hyatt Hotel on March 9th 2004 prior to departing for the 4.30pm soundcheck at the Budokan.
Japan-only double sampler LP of tracks from Bowie's then 5 RCA-issued albums, though not in chronological order on the vinyl, with these being: 'Ziggy Stardust.', 'Aladdin Sane', 'Space Oddity', 'The Man Who Sold The World' and 'Hunky Dory'.
Issued in double-pocket gatefold sleeve and 2-page insert with notes (Japanese) and lyrics (English) that complete notes and lyrics from inner jacket.
Both records are labeled Side 1 / Side 2 and are in inner anti-static liner bags.
The vinyl (which has not been played) looks as thought it has been professionally "washed" and spindle marks are present but light. There is only one noticeable scratch on one track.
The cardboard sleeve is in very good condition with light scuffs to the edges as can be seen in picture 1.
The inner gatefold and lyric sheets are in good condition with mild discolouration as can be seen.
