The original RCA release of 'Station To Station', the current edition of
Rolling Stone and the "Toy Soldier" version of 'White Light/White Heat'.
The Thin White Duke is a real cool cat...
The current issue of Rolling Stone magazine has a list of the fifty coolest records ever made, compiled by the magazine's staff. Topping the list is a particular favourite of David's, the Velvet Underground's 1968 classic, 'White Light/White Heat', the title track of which will be very familiar to Bowie fans. The U.S. version of the Rolling Stones' 1966 'Aftermath' album grabs second place, followed by another Bowie favourite, James Brown's 1968 release 'Live At The Apollo'.
David Bowie's own 'Station To Station' was voted in at number 21, and who can deny the coolness of a record made by the iceman himself, The Thin White Duke. David still has his original copies of both 'White Light/White Heat' and 'Live At The Apollo', and I wouldn't mind betting he has a copy of 'Station To Station' somewhere too...how cool is that?
