Just after he finished shooting his first movie, The Man Who Fell to Earth, David Bowie charged back into the studio to record a follow-up to the slinky Young Americans. Station to Station reflected Bowie fully immersed in American culture, the excitement and lure of it. With only six tracks, this 1976 album came off as ambitious and lofty - in other words, pure Bowie. "Station to Station" clocked in at more than 10 minutes of piano-driven tempo, while "The Golden Years" followed with a groove conjuring such funk as Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious." Bowie's golden pipes sound even more impressive on this remastered version, which also offers enhanced elements, sending listeners on a journey to musical sites on the Internet.

Editorial Notes

This is an enhanced audio CD which contains regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. Personnel: David Bowie (vocals, guitar, saxophone); Warren Peace (vocals); Carlos Alomar, Earl Slick, Stacey Heydon (guitar); Roy Bittan (piano); Tony Kaye (keyboards); George Murray (bass); Dennis Davis (drums). STATION TO STATION was the soundtrack to Bowie's nightlife. This time around he fashioned himself as the king of slick, the "Thin White Duke/Throwing darts in lover's eyes." This new persona enabled Bowie to show his sensual side and his affection for American soul music--something that would have seemed out of context on previous efforts. The album's smooth vibe is evident in the funky guitar of "Golden Years," and mixed with a dangerous charm and the "side effects of the cocaine" on "Stay." Bowie had miraculously done it again--he picked up a new musical identity, and molded it to perfection. STATION TO STATION was a refining period for Bowie. Gone was his other-worldly sexuality; The Thin White Duke was right here on Earth, no alien veneer, just a man completely run by his desires. It is then purely appropriate that the medium through which he expressed this lustful angle would be soul music. Carlos Alomar's biting guitar on "Golden Years" is straight out of the James Brown catalog, while the frantic drums and background vocals of "Stay" are pure strobe light disco.
