Never No Turnin’ Back

Recorded at Sigma Sound Studios, Philadelphia, sometime between 8th – 23rd August 1974. This is the first recorded version (now regarded as a demo) during initial sessions at Sigma. However, the track was left unfinished and unreleased, and a second version was then recorded at Sigma later in the same year, to be re-titled as “Right” and finally included on the Young Americans album in 1975.

This demo has previously appeared on several bootlegs including the Absolute Rare CD albeit in a much poorer sound quality.

The film for this video was shot on location in and around Philadelphia, including at Sigma Sound Studios, where Bowie and his backing singers are shown rehearsing the vocals for the song.
