‘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’.
