8-Trackin’: Ben E. King Meets Average White Band (1975-’77) — 1 Comment

  1. It’s curious how much “Supernatural Thing” sounds like David Bowie’s “Fame” – yet as far as I can tell the two songs evolved in parallel, without one influencing or inspiring the other. Seemingly “Supernatural” was cut in December 1974 but not released until Feb ’75. In the interim (Jan ’75) Bowie undertook the studio sessions (with John Lennon in tow) that yielded “Fame.” I guess that was just the sound back then!
