When was the last time you gave David Bowie's Station to Station a listen? Have you listened to "Golden Years" since your own golden years were over—or are they still in full swing and does the 1974 nostalgia not apply? Hey, were you even alive in 1974? Well whatever, we are giving away a copy of the deluxe reissue of Bowie's arguably finest album. It features a transfer from the original stereo analogue master, a two-disc recording from Nassau Coliseum in '76, and a lot of other goodies. Dude doesn't even remember recording the album (due to well-known rock-n-roll influences), but maybe one lucky FADER reader can get it together and enter the contest. To do so, leave us a note in the comments telling us about the Bowie-esque things you did (or would have done) in 1974, and be sure to use your real email address so we can contact you if you’ve won. And if you're hankering for some Bowie in the meantime, stream the three-part album in its entirety on KCRW. The ten-minutes of ambient train noise in the beginning will be good preparation for your long journey home on the subway tonight... or maybe you are rich and have a driver! In that case you could probably just buy the album.
