Young Americans, Young Americans, I want Young Americans...
It is with great pleasure that we can finally give you exclusive details regarding what was the 30th anniversary edition of Young Americans.
We first told you about the release back in February, (02.21.2005 NEWS: YOUNG AMERICANS 30TH ANNIVERSARY CD DUE) but due to the fact that the album will now be released in March 2006 (31 years since it's original release) it will now be refereed to as the Young Americans Collectors Edition.
The Young Americans Collectors Edition will include a previously unreleased version of It?s Gonna Be Me with strings and a 5.1 surround sound mix of the whole album by Tony Visconti and will comprise a CD and DVD.
Here's how it breaks down:
01 Young Americans
05 Somebody Up There Likes Me
06 Across The Universe
07 Can You Hear Me
09 John, I?m Only Dancing (Again)
10 Who Can I Be Now?
11 It?s Gonna Be Me (with strings) (previously unreleased)
The DVD will contain the same tracklisting as above, but will be made up of new 5.1 surround sound mixes by Tony Visconti, (DTS 96/24 and Dolby Digital) and again in stereo as the CD but in higher resolution (PCM 48kHz/24 bit).
The DVD will also contain footage of Young Americans and 1984 from the Dick Cavett TV show.
Those of you that have heard Tony's previous 5.1 surround sound mixes know what a treat you are in for.
