Golden Years will be the last of the 40th anniversary 7" picture discs for 2015. Originally released on November 21 1975, the single had a lot to live up to.
As we said in our previous item, 1975 was a good year for Bowie chart action. Fame had given Bowie his first #1 Stateside and the Space Oddity rerelease 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 flavour of Golden Years didn't begin to hint at the emotionally cold Thin White Duke who was waiting in the wings of 1976.
