David Bowie Golden Years on Limited Edition Picture Disc 7" Vinyl

"Golden Years" will be the last of the David Bowie 40th anniversary 7" picture disc releases for 2015. Originally released on November 21, 1975, the single had a lot to live up to. 1975 was a very good year for Bowie chart action. "Fame" had given Bowie his first #1 Stateside and the "Space Oddity" re-release became Bowie's first UK #1.

The UK press advert for "Golden Years" reflected this success while making the following bold prediction: October No. 1...Fame...USA / November No. 1...Space Oddity...UK / December No. 1...Golden Years...Worldwide! In the event, "Golden Years" did make it into the Top Ten in the UK, peaking at #8. Nevertheless, it was a great advert for the upcoming Station To Station album, even though it was a bit of a curveball stylistically.

The general upbeat flavor of "Golden Years" didn't begin to hint at the emotionally cold Thin White Duke who was waiting in the wings of 1976. Both the A-side ("Golden Years") and AA-side ("Station To Station") feature photos by Steve Schapiro. The AA-side is a previously unpublished shot.
