Ten-page Young Americans feature in UNCUT
“Me, I’m fresh on your pages“
To mark the 40th anniversary of David Bowie’s 1975 masterpiece, Young Americans, the February 2015 edition of UNCUT magazine has a ten-page feature by John Robinson, titled Heart and Soul.
The magazine also has a Bowie cover (albeit a flipped picture...eye and bangle give it away), and it’s available any day now.
Here’s the intro to the piece...
August 1974, and DAVID BOWIE is a man carrying a heavy burden. Management problems, extravagant stage set, a whole wardrobe full of personae. Soul music was his rescue: it poured balm on his problems, and pointed the way ahead.
In exclusive new interviews, Carlos Alomar, Andy Newmark, Earl Slick, Geoff MacCormack, Ava Cherry, David Sanborn and Mike Garson recall how Lulu, Luther Vandross and 10 days of “freaky soul“ in Philadelphia helped Bowie lay the ground work for YOUNG AMERICANS, and s whole new direction. “It may be his best album,“ says Mike Garson, “It was straight to the music.“
If you've not listened in a while, go check out Young Americans now on Spotify and see for yourself if Mr Garson has a point.
