THIS is a re-issue of Bowie's work in the mid-1970s: a time he described as his "plastic" period.

More than just a re-issue it is, too, Bowie's admission that he has a liking for rhythm and blues.

It may have come as a shock at the time, but 30 years on it shows that there was more to Bowie - as we certainly know - than the glam-rock persona.

The tracks here include Win, Somebody Up There Like Me and, obviously, Young Americans.
