David Bowie - Fame (40th Anniversary 7" Picture Disc)

Originally released in summer 1975 FAME was taken from the album YOUNG AMERICANS, it was co-written with John Lennon and guitarist Carlos Alomar and was Bowie's first #1 in the USA. This is the first appearance of the single edit since a ‘Best Of Bowie’ LP in 1980, its only other appearance being the original single itself.

The b-side of the original single was the YOUNG AMERICANS album track RIGHT, for this 40th anniversary RIGHT is now the AA-side and appears as an alternate mix previously released by Ryko/EMI in 1991. However, due to a mistake it was released at the wrong speed but for this release that has been corrected.

A-Side Fame (Original single edit)

(David Bowie)

Produced David Bowie & Harry Maslin

AA-Side Right (Alternate Mix)

(David Bowie)

Produced & mixed by Tony Visconti & Harry Maslin

The photo used on the A-side of the picture disc is by Andrew Kent taken whilst David was performing on the Soul Train TV show in November 1975. The AA side image is an outtake from a session with the famous 1940's/50's Hollywood photographer Tom Kelley.
