Originally released on 23rd January 1976, Station To Station was David Bowie’s tenth studio album. To celebrate its 45th anniversary, Parlophone is proud to announce a special limited edition ‘bricks & mortar’ only pressing of the album on both red & white vinyl.
Considered a classic among fans and critics alike, the record was unusual for a Bowie album in that it contained just six tracks, even though it still clocked in at a little over thirty-eight minutes.
For the first time ever, a David Bowie album was a bigger commercial success Stateside than in the UK. It reached #3 on the Billboard 200 and #5 on the official UK album chart.
Four of Station To Station’s six songs were released as commercial A-sides by RCA, with Golden Years being the pre-album hit on both sides of the Atlantic. The song scored Bowie yet another top ten just in time for the Christmas UK chart in 1975, where it remained right up to the release of the album in January 1976.
45 years on from its release, Station To Station is now seen as a musical bridge between the ‘plastic soul’ of 1975’s Young Americans and the start of Bowie’s Berlin-era with 1977’s Low.
