In celebration of the 45th anniversary of David Bowie’s US release of Fame becoming his first #1 single anywhere in the world, Parlophone will issue a limited edition ‘bricks & mortar’* only, gold vinyl version of the album from whence it came, Young Americans.

The Young Americans gold edition will be released next month on Friday 18th September, Fame peaked at #1 45 years earlier to the week, on 20th September, 1975.

Fame was preceded by the Young Americans single in the US, a release which was also a Top 30 hit on the BILLBOARD HOT 100 in May of the same year.

Young Americans is the latest in a series of 45th anniversary Bowie vinyl albums reissued in recent years. Previous releases in the series have included gold vinyl versions of Hunky Dory and The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, a silver vinyl release of Aladdin Sane plus a red vinyl edition of Diamond Dogs.

* For those unfamiliar with the term, ‘bricks & mortar’ refers to physical stores as opposed to online retailers.
