Station to Station [Special Edition] (3CD) [$34.98]

True Bowie diehards will tell you 1976’s Station to Station is one of his greatest accomplishments. Drawing upon his role in Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth, Bowie inhabits his last great character, the Thin White Duke, crafting an album equal parts European and American, bridging the gap between the plastic soul period of Young American and his move to Berlin the following year.


This gargantuan box set features five CDs, three LPs and one DVD, including single edits of “Golden Years” and a rare French single version of “Station to Station”, as well as his much sought-after concert performance at Nassau Coleseum in 1976.
