    1. Fame (Original single edit)
    1. Right (Alternate Mix)


“Fame, What's your name?”

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.

The b-side of the single at the time 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 mastering error it was released at the wrong speed. For this release that issue has been rectified.

The colour image used on the A-side of the picture disc is by Andrew Kent taken whilst David was performing Golden Years on the Soul Train TV show in November 1975. He also performed Fame on the show on account of its recent success on the Billboard Hot 100.

The AA side image is an outtake from a session with renowned 1940's/50's Hollywood photographer Tom Kelley.
