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.
