Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowie's Best and Alot More Oct. 4 2010
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

There seems to be a major resurgence of interest in 1970s music as today's 15-25 year olds rediscover music from that decade. I grew up in the 70s and my friends' teenaged sons are now frequently asking me about 70s bands and looking for lesser known bands and albums from that era.

David Bowie can hardly be classified as a "lesser known" musician but I've discovered that many of the young guys asking me about 70s music have heard of Bowie but they aren't sure which of his many albums to check out first. So to help rectify that situation.......

This 1976 release is one of my three personal favourites among all of Bowie's extensive catalogue (the other two are Alladin Sane and Ziggy Stardust) and is one of the essential albums that should be in any respectable collection of 1970s music.

Bowie has changed his image and sound repeatedly over the years. This album is from his Thin White Duke period, which started circa 1975 and followed his Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars phase, which lasted circa 1972-74. If you're not overly familiar with Bowie, this is, by far, the best album of Bowie's Thin White Duke period. If your music collection only has room for a only a few Bowie albums, this should be one of them.

I recall seeing an interview with Bowie many years ago in which he said that he had such a bad cocaine habit in 1976 that he didn't remember making this album. It's still a great album in spite of Bowie's cocaine addiction while making it.

For those who aren't overly familiar with Bowie, there are also two albums from his Spiders From Mars period you should check out: Aladdin Sane; and Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've been waiting forever for this Oct. 11 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicest Box Set Yet Oct. 5 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On the heels of the "white soul" of 1975's "Young Americans", musical chameleon David Bowie changed course yet again with the release of "Station To Station" in 1976. A musical journey across a decadent, neo-fascist Europe of David's imagining, "Station To Station" works as a bridge between past efforts and his forthcoming ambient electronics heavy Berlin trilogy of "Low", "Heroes" and "Lodger".
Starting with the epic grandeur of the 10 minute title track, "Station To Station" proceeds to veer from the funky "Golden Years", through the lovely "Word On A Wing", the barrel house boogie of "TVC15", the shape-shifting "Stay" and the elegant finale "Wild Is The Wind". While not as accessible to listeners expecting Ziggy Stardust era rock and roll, "Station To Station" presents a brilliant and demanding aural landscape which will thrill those with more eclectic musical tastes.
The DVD 5.1 surround mix of the album is excellent. You might have to adjust your speaker levels a bit though. The two CDs of the 1976 concert are great as well, with the band doing a few songs from "Station To Station" and running through a greatest hits set. The different take on the Velvet Underground's "Waiting For The Man" is quite interesting.
Included in the deluxe edition box:
180 gram vinyl editions of the original album remastered and the long-bootlegged 1976 Nassau Coliseum concert.
5 CDs including the original master, the 1985 RCA remaster, the single edits from the album and the two concert discs.
1 DVD containing the original stereo mix, a new stereo mix and the 5.1 surround mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...it's not the side effects of the cocaine....
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). Read more
