STATION TO STATION was the soundtrack to Bowie's nightlife. This time around he fashioned himself as the king of slick, the "Thin White Duke/Throwing darts in lover's eyes." This new persona enabled Bowie to show his sensual side and his affection for American soul music--something that would have seemed out of context on previous efforts.

The album's smooth vibe is evident in the funky guitar of "Golden Years," and mixed with a dangerous charm and the "side effects of the cocaine" on "Stay." Bowie had miraculously done it again--he picked up a new musical identity, and molded it to perfection.

STATION TO STATION was a refining period for Bowie. Gone was his other-worldly sexuality; The Thin White Duke was right here on Earth, no alien veneer, just a man completely run by his desires. It is then purely appropriate that the medium through which he expressed this lustful angle would be soul music. Carlos Alomar's biting guitar on "Golden Years" is straight out of the James Brown catalog, while the frantic drums and background vocals of "Stay" are pure strobe light disco.

Personnel: David Bowie (vocals, guitar, alto & tenor saxophones, Moog synthesizer, Mellotron); Warren Peace (vocals); Carlos Alomar, Earl Slick (guitar); Roy Bittan (piano); George Murray (bass); Dennis Davis (drums).

Principally recorded at Cherokee Studios, Hollywood, California. Originally released on RCA.
