Product Description

Product Description

An eerie dispatch from the furthest reaches of Bowie's cocaine paranoia, Station To Station has not become easier to listen to with the passing years. At this stage, Bowie was wrapped up in his peculiar--even by his standards--Thin White Duke period, which revolved largely around dressing like a fugitive war criminal and not blinking, at least not in public. Appropriate to such a detached, deranged persona, Bowie set about making what was effectively a soul record devoid of any soul whatsoever. He did it, as well. Station To Station spawned one lingering hit, in "Golden Years", but the album was littered with malevolent miracles. Bowie crooned like a replica Sinatra on "Word on A Wing" and "Wild is the Wind" and may have single-handedly invented the New Romantic movement with "TVC15". He sounds throughout on the verge of cackling dementedly and wandering off into the night; Station To Station is an absorbing postcard from somewhere you're kind of glad you haven't been. --Andrew Mueller

Station to Station has always been a favourite Bowie album of mine. The sound is so clean and precise, and there is no excess on it.

The '70s stereo remaster of the studio album alone is worth the sticker price, once you're rediscovered the title track on headphones (as it was meant to be). Beautiful restoration.

And then there are the two live discs. I have had a crappy Italian bootleg of the radio broadcast for years. This issue is a completely new beast. Beautiful sound, lots more tracks... they even controversially edit down the old 10-minute drum solo in "Panic in Detroit" (it's available in full as a digital download).

As a live Bowie document from an era when I was too young to see him play, I think this show blows both David Live and Stage out of the water. If you are a fan, you have to own this. No other live versions of songs from the album quite do them justice. And "Stay" will blow your mind.

To many this is Bowie's best record. It may not be his biggest or most famous but it is solid from begining to end. Bowie made this album at what he calls "a low point in my life". He was doing lots of drugs and he had just pulled his soundtrack from "The Man Who Fell To Earth". So the fact that he was able to make this record is kind of amazing. But thats not all! He also said the tour for Station To Station (Or the White Light Tour) was the best he ever did. Well up until now there has only been two extra tracks on the Ryko Station To Station remaster. But now we get a great remaster as well as the 1985 remaster (don't really know why they put that in), A CD of the single edits plus for the first time a complete show from the tour. There is also a DVD with 96/24 5.1 and stereo mix of the album. The 5.1 mix has amazing sound but 90% is coming from the front speakers so the mix itself could have been better but it still sounds great. You also get the Station To Station remaster and the Live cd's on record (I do not see why Vinyl people should have to buy the CD's and why CD people shoud have to buy the vinyl). The box set has an essay from Cameron Crow as well as a timeline and some great tech notes for us die hards. You also get Buttons, Photo's, ticket stub and a whole lot of other stuff. But again the real treat is how great the music sounds. If you are new to Bowie you might want to scheck out the three disc version of Station to Station (It's the remastered CD plus the two CD live show). However if your a die hard bite the bullet and get this one. It's alot of money but you will know where it went.

I've read that Bowie was so messed up on coke when this album was recorded he doesn't even remember it. Maybe his subconcious mind was writing these songs and recording them, if so, let's hear it for Bowie's subconscious mind!
I was thinking very carefully about WHY I love this album so much and consider it Bowie's best album, which is saying a lot because he's recorded some fantastic albums. I hate to endorse drug use, but maybe the coke had something to do with it. Would Bowie have come up with this album without the influence of coke? Would the Beatles have come up with "Sgt. Pepper" without the influence of acid? I would say highly unlikely on both counts.
Whatever the coke did to Bowie's brain at this time, I definitely find Bowie's musical statements compelling. Bowie's pre-"Station to Station" albums found him searching for the voice he achieved on "Station to Station."
All his albums have flashes of brilliance, but "Station to Station" finds that brilliance sustained throughout. Bowie sings better. That nasal "Anthony Newley" voice of yore is gone. There is a depth and resonance to his voice on "Station to Station." His vocal control is amazing. His finest recorded vocal of all time may be his track, "Wild is the Wind." Bowie writes better. Gone are the wordy, precious, pretentious lyrics he could so annoyingly write on his earlier albums. His words are sharp like razors. He keeps the words clean and concise, but with an edge of danger.
Like the Beatles did with "Sgt. Pepper," Bowies hits just the right balance of pop music and experimental music. His post-"S.T.S" albums with Eno would veer further into the experimental realm.

Earmarking a more experimental phase, Station to Station provides a more angular take on dance rhythms (most obvious on this album through the sublime funk bass of George Murray). Preference herein was for a more chilly alienated mood, percolated through Bowie's heavily stylised vocals and increased use of electronica.
Bowie adopts a new persona, the Thin White Duke. This cold New European, forever restless, introduces the whole album on the title song. Station to Station is about the strains of the three-day train journey from New York to Los Angeles - all condensed into ten minutes of music. It begins with the sound of a train moving from speaker to speaker and ends as an all-out rocker. "It's not the side effects of the cocaine - I'm thinking that it must be love", he tells us. Only the song's coldness and desperation prevents it from being as commercial as, say, Modern Love from his 1983 Let's Dance album.
The next song, Golden Years, was the album's only hit single. A melodic but restrained disco song with strong lyrics, it became the follow-up to to his US chart-topping song Fame. Legend has it that Bowie originally wrote the song for Elvis Presley, he reportedly rejected it.
Word On A Wing on the other hand, is a ballad about Bowie's restless searching - this time for God. Perhaps inspired by The Man Who Fell To Earth, refuge is found in the Lord and prayer. The song is literally heavenly with is choir-of-angels effect.

TVC 15, a bizarre, raunchy song inspired by a (supposedly drug-inspired) story Iggy Pop told Bowie - about how Iggy's girlfriend was swallowed by his TV set!
Stay is a smooth effort from the master. Running breathless on a funk groove, it continues on the "it's too late..." theme ("Stay . . . or do something...").
