Listen to 2010 Maslin Mix of TVC 15

on September 07, 2016

 

“Transition, Transmission, Transition, Transmission”

 

For those of you who weren’t able to access the 2010 Harry Maslin Mix of TVC15 last week, here it is now on Spotify.

 

This mix was previously available on the 5.1 surround sound DVD only, as part of the 2010 Deluxe Edition of Station To Station.

 

Here’s a bit from Mr Maslin’s sleeve notes regarding the difficulty of mixing tracks in a pre-computer aided studio, taken from the David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) book set book.

 

“The project was mixed at The Hit Factory in New York which was my home studio and wherein I was

WCIBN? Album Focus: Station To Station

on September 05, 2016

 

“Such is the stuff from where dreams are woven”

 

This week Station To Station is the selected album from the upcoming David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set.

 

Station To Station celebrated its 40th birthday earlier this year (January 23rd 1976). Considered a classic among fans and critics alike, the record was unusual for a Bowie album in that it contained just six tracks, even though it still clocked in at a little over thirty eight minutes.

 

For the first time ever, a David Bowie album was a bigger commercial success Stateside than in the UK.

WCIBN? Album Focus: Gouster/YA - Part 2

on September 03, 2016

 

“Fame, makes a man take things over”

 

We’re looking at The Gouster and Young Americans from the upcoming David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set (smarturl.it/Bowie7476AZ), before we move on to Station To Station next week.

 

One of the more obvious differences between The Gouster and Young Americans is that the latter contained Bowie’s first ever #1 single. (Compare tracklisitings here.)

 

Fame was the second 45 released from the Young Americans album (the title track was the first), and it reached the top spot on the American Billboard Hot 100 in October, 1975.

WCIBN? Album Focus: Gouster/YA

on August 30, 2016

 

“All right, You want the young American”

 

This week we’re focusing on The Gouster and Young Americans from the upcoming David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set.

 

We’ve lumped them together because, in a nutshell, The Gouster is the previously unreleased album (a kind of Young Americans v1), on its way to being the final version of Young Americans, which was actually released in March 1975.

 

To kick us off, and in an attempt to try and make things less confusing, we’ve posted the tracklisting for each album below...
