EMI America has issued a press release today regarding the upcoming reissue for David Bowie’s 1976 album Station to Station. It highlights further details of the content (including the exact edits of E.P. of singles included in the deluxe edition, among other things).

[end press release]

So the single edits are the only real diversion we are getting from the album, besides the various mixes of the album tracks. No B-sides existed from these sessions, not to mention any officially available outtakes or unofficial studio leaks that I know of. Correct me if I am wrong, fellow Bowie fans (and provide any mp3s to back that up, too).

I’ll leave with a nice, big advertisement promoting the album and Bowie’s then U.S. tour. Reminisce…
