“All right, you want the young American”

 

David Bowie’s ninth studio album, the Bowie/Visconti/Maslin produced Young Americans, was released on this day in 1975.

A top ten album in both the US (#9) and the UK (#2) it also furnished Bowie with his first ever #1 single in the shape of the Bowie/Lennon/Alomar composition, Fame.

Young Americans still sounds a remarkable work today and that’s not just because it was written and sung by a 27-year-old white man, it’s a true classic however you look at it.

But don't take our word for it, if you've not listened in a while, go check it out again on Spotify now.
