Station to Station (Special Edition)

The whole sordid story of Seventies rock is in the grooves of Station to Station: London's prettiest pop star moves to L.A., samples the local chemicals, loses what's left of his mind and starts calling himself the Thin White Duke. He ends up on Soul Train fumbling the words to "Golden Years." This zonked-out space-funk epic could be Bowie's greatest album, even if he can barely remember making it. The reissue adds the legendary Nassau Coliseum show of March 1976. When Bowie covers the Velvet Underground's "I'm Waiting for the Man" and yelps about "$26 in my hand," you know that wouldn't cover his drug budget for the next five minutes. But he still sounds unstoppable.
