New Release: David Bowie The Road to the Railway DVD

David Bowie: The Road to the Railway scene

The Thin White Duke returns in The Road to the Railway.

On July 12, 2011, Entertainment One released documentary film David Bowie: The Road to the Railway on DVD.

The hour-long examination of the events and influences that led up to the creation of Bowie’s seminal 1976 rock album Station to Station carries a suggested retail price of $19.99.

Considered by music scholars as the essential bridge between Bowie’s just completed “Plastic Soul” phase and his “Berlin Trilogy,” the movie traces the journey from the end of Bowie’s chameleon era (Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and Diamond Dogs) to the release of Station to Station, his 10th studio album, in early 1976.

Featured are exclusive period interviews of Bowie (The Sacred Triangle), rare performance footage, previously unseen archive material, contributions from those around Bowie at the time, seldom-seen photos, news reports, location shoots and more.

Among the bonus features are extended interviews, a digital interactive gaming feature and more.

Oh, and this DVD is NOT authorized by Mr. Bowie!
