  • Young Americans

    Released in 1975, the 9th studio album by David Bowie was a sudden change in style for Bowie but nonetheless, “Young Americans” was both a fan and a critic favorite.  After composing several years of glam rock style albums, Bowie chose instead on this album to add a little soul to his album.  With backing from a then non-famous Luther Vandross, this album was definitely not his usual style.  Slower and with more R&B mixed with what Bowie himself referred to as ethnic music, “Young Americans” contained the hit “Fame” which was actually co-written with Beatle John Lennon.  The album itself reached #2 on the UK chart and the song “Fame” went to #1 on the Billboard pop singles.  Although rather short in quantity of songs, it sure makes up for it in quality.
