 The sound you are referring to is the same on this release as well as the RCA Gold Series release of "Fame" backed with "Golden Years" released afterward, so I have always assumed this was intentional and not some sort of defect. This version is much better than the "remix" made for and released on the "ChangesBowie" Greatest Hits compilation CD, I was very disappointed to hear what they did to this song when I bought the CD hoping to have clean versions of these amazing classics I grew up with.

 I don't know if "distortion" is the word - unless you're talking about right after the recorded-backwards piano note, when the rest of the band kicks in. I also noticed a different mastering house handled the 45 vs. the whole of the Young Americans LP - Kendun on the former, the Master Cutting Room on the latter.

 DOes anyone elses copy of this record sound horribly distorted during the intro to "Fame"? It's not any record damage I can detect on my copy. It just sound like a bad mastering.

 Orange label copies (as on {Images #218167 & 218168}) was from Hollywood, tan label copies {Images #214553 & 214554} mostly from Indianapolis.
