A new Bowie box set contains remastered versions of the tracks on this "lost" album
‘The Gouster’ is the album in question, written in 1974 and weighing in at only seven tracks long. Made with long-term collaborator Tony Visconti at Sigma Sound studio in Philadelphia, the songs that were written for ‘The Gouster’ would serve as the base ideas for the material that would make up Bowie’s iconic ninth studio album, ‘Young Americans’.
As Stereogum reports, ‘The Gouster’ is included on a new Bowie box set, ‘Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976)’, which was released both physically and digitally today. Bowie was particularly prolific throughout this time period, releasing three studio albums in three years.
