Bowie’s classic ‘Plastic Soul’ ninth studio album remastered here on CD.
What’s the hook?
Originally released in March 1975, Young Americans was Bowie’s ninth studio album, and a huge departure from his previous Glam Rock style. Produced by Tony Visconti, they created a sound during sessions in Philadelphia and New York that Bowie described as ‘Plastic Soul’. The album's two hit singles, the title track and the John Lennon co-write Fame, are viewed as amongst Bowie's very best with the latter giving him his first US #1.
Featuring the 2016 remastered audio, the album is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
