The second half of Bowie's Thin White Duke years in the studio – slightly less sublime as his Young Americans outing in Philly with Luther, but still surprisingly soulful nonetheless! The format here is much more compact – with a small group working alongside Bowie in an effort to create the same sort of flowing grooves as on the Young Americans record – an approach that's got a bit more of the rock of his roots creeping in, yet which also hits some great mellow grooving moments too – more than enough to appeal to our Dusty Groove-tuned ears, while still also making for a record that's easily one of the best Bowie outings of the 70s. Titles include the classic "Station To Station", plus "Golden Years", "Word On A Wing", "TVC 15", "Stay", and "Wild Is The Wind". This amazing limited box set features "The Ultimate Fan Experience" – CD1 features the full original analogue master of the record, CD2 features the 1985 RCA master of the album, CD3 features rare singles versions EP of 5 tracks from the album, CD4 & CD5 features a live concert from Nassau Coliseum from 1976 – with titles that include "Station To Station", "Fame", "Stay", "Queen Bitch", "Life On Mars", "Changes", "TVC 15", "Jean Genie", "Rebel Rebel", and "Five Years". Then, the set also features a DVD with three different mixes of the album. Plus LP1 features the original analogue master, and LPs 2 & 3 feature the Nassau Coliseum concert! There's also loads of other cool bits too – replicas of a backstage pass, a bio, press photos, fan club folder, fan club card, certificate, more photos, badges, a ticket, and even a poster!
(Box is crushed on top seam – split on two edges – but all the rest appears to be in good shape.)
