Re: "Young Americans" 30th Anniversary new [re: diamondogz74]  

Maybe there will be 'Blue Eyed Soul' liner notes tribute written by Hall and Oates?

Ah! well you see Tristan it is my fav Bowie album of all time and I take it from your post that you arn't that keen on Young Americans? yet I distinctly remember you saying that both "It's Gonna Be Me" and "John Im Only Dancing ( again )" sounded great on the Wealth and Authority boot

Own up please


Yes, but those songs weren't on the original album when it came out in 1975. I'm always excited when a new Bowie album comes out, but YA was such a change from AS and DD I probably wasn't ready for it. That's not to say I didn't like it when it first came out, but the only songs I find myself wanting to listen to today from that album are "Win", "Can You Hear Me" and "Fame". Thanx to the Ryko CD for the 3 bonus trax of which I listen to the 2 songs mentioned in your post.

I know most people consider this to be Bowie's soul album, plastic soul I guess, maybe Philly soul, but it aint soul music to me. Want to hear some real soul music? Stax. Stax. Maybe Bowie should have stuck around Memphis a little longer when he was there in 1974.

Absolutely. It is soul music for people who do not like soul music, like myself. It is soul influenced pop music. Love it.

I just knew you would say that but of course it's true none the less.

All of which are truly wonderful songs I agree with "Can You Hear Me" probably being the best love song he has ever written, the Ryko disc as you mention is in my humble opinion the best Ryko disc there was, the bonus tracks being such an integral part of the album.

I've never been that keen on the term plastic soul It makes it sound cheap and false, I think it's Bowies interpretation of soul music at that time.

Thank you for the stax links Tristan, yes I've heard a bit about the label Stax and the sites were very good, I've seen the Shaft films with Issac Hayes and the sound is great and as for Bowie sticking around Memphis longer? I think he should return there immediately and make some music

One of my fav soul bands that IMO were different to the huge anount of soul music at that time were the Isley Brothers now that was soul with some rock.

Stax new [re: diamondogz74]  

The Stax museum is a 2 hour drive from where I live. If you're ever in this part of the country I'll take you.

You're on Tristan and I still havn't forgotten that meal we eventually will have when I visit your neck of the woods

I think it would be neat if the YA discs were issued resembling little black vinyl albums with the RCA logo in the centre.

The Lennon 12' "interview" is a 5:30AM morning call to DJ Alex Bennett of New York's WPLJ, placed at the conclusion of (or during a break in) the post-Grammy partying. Bowie and Yoko are also in on the 'fun'.

It would be extremely neat, but unfortunately (if I have understood correctly), EMI cannot use RCA labels because RCA is owned by BMG these days.

Of course, they could make labels that look like the old RCA labels, just with the letters EMI on them.
