Earlier this year, I spent an entire episode of my weekly "rock report" to SIRIUS XM OutQ's Morning Jolt with Larry Flick talking about David Bowie archival releases, and mentioned that a big Station To Station reissue would be out later this year.  Well, it's out!

Station To Station was a transitional album for Bowie, bridging the gap between the funky Young Americans and the more experimental Low, Lodger and "Heroes". I think Bowie has said that he barely remembers working on it, but that doesn't take away from its greatness. The 10 minutes + title track is awesome, but he also has shorter hit singles like "TVC15" "Golden Years."

I don't have the super dexlue version - it has vinyl and lots of collector item stuff.  The regular deluxe version has the album along with a 2 CD live album from the tour, and is really rocking.  Even if you have a remastered version of Station To Station, I recommend getting at least the deluxe version, if not the super deluxe one.
