New David Bowie Box Set Includes Previously Unreleased Album A new David Bowie box set is on the way and will include an unreleased album from the late music icon. Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) will include The Gouster, a record that eventually morphed into the material on Young Americans. A post on the official Bowie Facebook page says that more details about the box set are on the way next week but its artwork will feature a "previously unpublished picture from the original photo session for [The Gouster]."
Longtime Bowie producer Tony Visconti penned the liner notes for Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) and an excerpt was posted on Facebook as well. Visconti writes, "Gouster was a word unfamiliar to me but David knew it as a type of dress code worn by African American teens in the ‘60’s, in Chicago. But in the context of the album its meaning was attitude, an attitude of pride and hipness. Of all the songs we cut we were enamored of the ones we chose for the album that portrayed this attitude."
