Originally released 23rd January 1976, Station To Station was David Bowie’s tenth studio album. Considered a classic among fans and critics alike, it was unusual for a Bowie album in that it contained just six tracks, clocking in at just 38 minutes, but was his first release to chart higher in the US than the UK, from where he originated.

To celebrate the album’s upcoming 45th anniversary, a very special limited edition, red or white vinyl pressing has just been announced.

Four and a half decades on from its release, Station To Station is often cited 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.

So – because any excuse will do to enjoy some awesome live Bowie performances – we thought it the perfect opportunity to look back at Bowie delivering some of the album’s iconic tracks in his Thin White Duke persona.
