Red or white ‘random’ vinyl • Physical shops only
Parlophone will reissue David Bowie‘s 1976 album Station to Station on vinyl for its 45th anniversary.
The special limited edition will be pressed on ‘random’ red and white coloured vinyl and will only be available via ‘bricks and mortar’ record stores (i.e. physical shops).
Station to Station was first issued on CD in 1984, by RCA, and then was remastered and slightly expanded by Rykodisc in 1991 (the Ryko version featured a full bleed colour image on the front cover). In 1999 EMI remastered and reissued it again (without any bonus tracks) although that version is not liked much by fans due to the use of ‘NoNoise’ technology.
In 2010, EMI reissued the album again as a super deluxe edition – or make that ‘Ultimate Fan Experience’ – box set (watch the SDEtv unboxing video) and also as a three-CD deluxe package (with the Nassau ’76 concert on CDs two and three).
Six years after that, the album was remastered again for the Who Can I Be Now? box set (which also included a stereo version of the 2010 Harry Maslin mix) and then in 2017 that same remaster was made available separately on CD and vinyl.
This new version will undoubtedly use the 2016 remaster and will be released on 22 January 2021 (a day before the actual anniversary). You should be able to acquire from physical stores’ websites as well popping in. For example, Rough Trade in the UK have a placeholder product listing in place right now.
