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

Some interesting insight on the new edition from Tony Visconti's website:

In reply to:

Now that the news has been announced on Bowienet www.davidbowie.com, I can tell you that it hasn't been quiet around our studio in the past month (or two). EMI and DTS are really hot on releasing David Bowie's classic albums in newly mixed 5.1 Surround Sound. I have mixed David Live and Stage, which are available now. I've just finished mixing the amazing Young Americans in 5.1 Surround Sound, too, for its 30th anniversary (has it been that long?). The release will be in a few months. There will be bonus tracks and a surprise.

All the tracks have been mixed from the master tapes to 96khz high definition digital audio. That translates to 'freakin' scary' quality. Mr. Bowie is front and center, but the backing is now spread 360º with Mr. Vandross hovering over your left shoulder for most of the album. John Lennon's six string acoustic is almost entirely in the right rear speaker on "Across The Universe" and you just might hear a comment from him when the song is over. What really brought it home to me was how great David's vocals were, and a lot of them were live takes with him standing in the same room as the band at Sigma Studios in Philadelphia.

You have never heard "Young Americans", "Fame" and "Across The Universe" like this. Oh, don't get excited about young Mr. Springsteen in the photo. He was there only for a visit and we couldn't get him to sing or do anything on "Saint In The City," which was never finished. But it's such a cool photo, isn't it?(below)



Bowie said of the time, "[Springsteen] wasn't happy about [Bowie doing versions of his songs] . . . I was on another planet at the time. I have this extraordinary photograph of us all — I look like I'm made out of wax."

What do you know — he does.

Don’t think about Young Americans as a makeout album
