It has been over four years since legendary rocker David Bowie died as a result of cancer; while gone, he is long from forgotten.
Bowie’s family is celebrating the 45th anniversary of the release of “Young Americans” in 1975 on September 18 with a gold limited edition vinyl release.
The gold record release will only be available in stores and is set to coincide when Bowie’s single “Fame” hit number one. Bowie wrote the song with Beatle john Lennon and Carlos Santana.
“Young Americans” was Bowie’s ninth album and marked his transition from glam rocker to music that leaned more toward R&B and soul.
A top 10 album in a number of countries, “Young Americans” was certified gold by the RIAA – Recording Industry Association of America – for selling a 100,00 copies in the United States.
“Young Americans” is the latest of anniversary editions released by Bowie.
The tracklisting for “Young Americans”:
“Somebody Up There Likes Me”
“Across the Universe”
“Can You Hear Me?”
