"Decades after being put in the vault and dribbled out a track at a time, David Bowie‘s unreleased The Gouster LP is finally out in one piece — as part of the new compilation box Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976). As longtime fans are aware, The Gouster represents the musical seeds for what would eventually become Bowie’s R&B-influenced 1975 album Young Americans."

David Bowie's previously unreleased 'Gouster' LP streamed in September 2016.
