1976 - "Station to Station" (AUS/NZ)
1. Station To Station
2. Golden Years
3. Word On A Wing
4. TVC15
5. Stay
6. Wild Is The Wind

Introducing a more Euro sound, Station to Station became Bowie's 5th Australian top 10 album on the trot.

The album corresponded with Bowie's first major European dates but Australasia was unfortunately still lacking from the tour agenda.

During 1976, Molly Meldrum conducted an interview with Bowie for Countdown, the footage of which seems to have eluded Youtubers thus far.
