Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

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

OK, here's a review from someone who's actually heard the release.

CD1 is the original album remastered. And what an excellent job has been done. I have the original 1991 Rykodisc era Sound+Vision release and this tops even that. Not only are all the instruments clear as a bell, the bass is more prominent, which really brings the music alive.

CD2 and 3 are Bowie's March 1976 Nassau Coliseum concert. Long term fans have long cherished bootlegs of this night - the band is far less cabaret than Bowie's 1974 outing and less cold and brittle than the instrumental-dominated 1978 Stage incarnation.

The concert has a good mix of Station to Station tracks - of which the title track, Stay and Word on a Wing are masterful - and older hits. Some of the recordings are a little ropey - Life on Mars and Five Years are (superior) bootleg quality and the mix on the 2nd half of the concert is somewhat unbalanced - cymbals dominate, you can only hear one guitar for a lot of the time, the piano is very quiet and the bass just a low rumbling. Whilst Jean Genie and TVC15 suffer most from this - both sound thin and even weedy during choruses and solos - Changes, Diamond Dogs and Queen Bitch are by contrast hugely entertaining - and Panic in Detroit is positively furious.

The packaging is great. A Cameron Crewe essay puts the album in context, followed by a detailed chronology of the preparation and execution of the album. Three CD sized postcards complete the box.

Station to Station has always been a masterpiece - a satisfying and consistent yet diverse collection of powerfully realised signature tunes. This set puts Bowie's mid-70s journey into context, gives us his most satisfying live album to date and reinforces his mastery of both art and entertainment.

Quite simple magnificent - if i could give 10 stars I would! From the crunching bass notes and insistent piano of the opening to Station to Station to the last notes of the haunting, emotional and beautiful Wild is the Wind, this is the work a master at his peak. For many this is Bowie's best album, and I would find it hard to argue against that although there are a good few other contenders for that title.

There are no filler tracks here - everything is an absolute gem, from the guitar based funk of Stay, through the disco soul of Golden Years, to the mesmerising Word on a Wing.

If you don't have this in your collection, or haven't yet updated from vinyl, then you really must buy this now. You won't regret it

After Ziggy Stardust, and Aladdin Sane, after the theatricality of "Diamond Dogs", and the plastic-soul of "Young Americans" there came perhaps Bowie's most haunting persona, The Thin White Duke, and this is his record.
At time of recording Bowie was in the depths of a serious cocaine addiction. It is said that he now remembers very little of the recording of "Station To Station". But once you have heard this album you will not forget it easily.
The title track is a ten minute epic in which Bowie's vocal range travels in leaps and bounds. Meet The Thin White Duke himself and gasp in awe as he screams: 'It's not the side effects of the cocaine/I'm thinking that it must be love'.
"Word On A Wing" sees Bowie at his most poignant as he pleads for grace in a desperate search for God. Shiver as he croons his way through the best version of "Wild Is The Wind" ever recorded.
This CD not important, it is *essential*! No collection should be without it.

Like most Bowie fans I have been somewhat disappointed to see how poorly EMI have treated the re-issue phase of the back catalogue since they took over in 1997. By 1999 we had all the albums remastered minus the impressive S+V bonus tracks and sadly in very boring packaging.

Since then there have been far too many missed opportunities by EMI to make more of the Bowie cannon. Is it any wonder they have the nick name E(very) M(istake) I(maginable)?

However likie the Space Oddity re-issue of 2009 EMI have got it just about spot on with the STATIONTOSTATION deluxe edition. I know many fans have complained about the price but for what you get I find this supurb value. The one aspect that makes this a special re-issue is the inclusion of the classic Nassau gig from March 23rd 1976. For many years Bowie fans have owned various versions on scratchy bootlegs and now, for the first time the show is here in full and cleaned up. It is brilliant!

If you are a casual Bowie fan than perhaps you will prefer the standard 3CD edition. However, if Bowie is in your top 5 of all time artists than may I suggest this box set a must for your collection.

People will always whine about what is and isn't included in re-issue packages but for now we should just enjoy what we do have. In closing my only reason for not giving this set 5 stars was the lack of out-take material of which the sleeve notes even mention 3 out-takes that for some reason failed to appear in this set. Otherwise a sublime effort from Bowie and EMI.

Most people who purchase this (expensive) box set are going to be hard core long term Bowie fanatics of which there are undoubtably millions around the planet. What can be said about the original album? not a lot really that hasnt been said time and time again and i cant imagine many people will be buying this boxset that doesnt already own at least one copy of STS. The remastering and remixing on the DVD disc is superb and although there is very little happening in the rear channels the overall effect is simply stunning. The clarity took my breath away. The packaging is very well done and the extras that are included took me back to my youth when id collect anything and everything from newspaper cuttings to huge posters on my bedroom wall of the man. The cds are inserted inside the respective vinyl album sleeves of both the Original album and the live show from the tour of 76. This isnt something id expected and wouldve much prefered the cds to have their own case or even cardboard sleeve as it means constantly manhandling both album covers and pulling the cds out of their tight little pockets inside the gatefold cover which will over time cause wear and tear on the card. I wont be getting my Turntable out of the loft to play the vinyl either and wouldve preffered a box set that didnt include them at a cheaper price but as a long term collector i can understand many oldies will want a vinyl copy included.
Station to Station was Bowie at his best. Coke addled with delusions of superpower he embraced his demons and came out as the Cold Genius that became the Thin White Duke.
