David Bowie - Young Americans: Wikipedia Album Entry
"Young Americans" is an album by English singer-songwriter David Bowie, released in 1975.
With this LP, Bowie made a sudden and jolting step in a new direction, shedding his glam rock past and exploring Philadelphia soul with backing from a very young Luther Vandross. "Young Americans" contained his first number one hit in the US, "Fame", co-written with John Lennon (who also contributed backing vocals), and work from one of Bowie's favourite guitarists and band members, Carlos Alomar.
