Mott the Hoople: All The Young Dudes


David Bowie wrote and produced this track. It was released by Mott the Hoople in July 1972, reaching No 3 in Britain and No 37 in America. It is No 256 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Here is a recording from the studio session with Bowie on vocals.

Bowie recorded it himself in December 1972 but it was not released until 1995 on his album Rarestonebowie.  I think this is it – readers, put me right if I am wrong.
