Filename F:\Bryan Ferry\1995 - More Than This (The Best Of Bryan Ferry + Roxy Music)\Bryan Ferry And Roxy Music - More Than This.wav

That first album provided a musical template for Ferry’s solo output, although his own songwriting gradually came to the fore, particularly after the break-up of Roxy Music.Taxi’ shot to #2 in the UK Albums Chart upon its release, five years after the critically revered 1997 album, ‘Bête Noire’. ‘Taxi’ was produced by Bryan Ferry and British guitarist, Robin Trower, and features a cast of formidable supporting musicians including Nathan East, Steve Ferrone and the singer Carleen Anderson.

The second single, " Will You Love Me Tomorrow" narrowly missed the U.K. top 20, peaking at No. 23. The third and final single, " Girl of My Best Friend" peaked at 57. [11] [12] Production and recording [ edit ] Ferry then devoted himself to the revived Roxy Music, not making another solo record until the mid-’80s, by which time the group had begun another long rest. When Roxy Music again ceased to exist, Ferry’s solo career took on new significance. Unfortunately, his own music is not that different from end-time Roxy Music: perfectionist studio technique and seamless production of songs that are at best bland and frequently lifeless. Boys and Girls (dedicated to Ferry’s late father) doesn’t sound that different from Roxy Music’s 1982 swan song, Avalon, but it’s so short on material that several of the numbers rely on fatiguing one-note vamps to carry them along. “Slave to Love” and “Don’t Stop the Dance” have proven to be enduring hallmarks of Ferry’s post-Roxy existence, but they don’t make the album soar. Exceptional lyrics might allow one to overlook such inadequacy, but there’s nothing much happening on that front, either. It’s impossible to dislike the album with any enthusiasm — given the considerable care, thought and effort that obviously went into its creation — but it’s dismaying to hear the iconoclastic rebel sound so tamed by the very thought of romance.

OCLC 29800226– via World Radio History. As ‘Taxi’ nears its 30th anniversary in March 2023 we are reminded of Bryan Ferry’s long tradition of reimagining songs from across the history of music, free from the bounds of genre and time. The ‘Taxi’ album features his refined, inspired interpretations of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ ‘I Put A Spell On You’, Goffin and King’s ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ and Lou Reed’s ‘All Tomorrow’s Parties’. Certainly this kind of repertoire perfectly suits his rich, elegant, and seductive voice, while matching the suave, sophisticated and gentlemanly image he portrays. Another great example is his enchanting reworking of “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” a 1933 Jerome Kern/Otto Harbach from the Broadway musical Roberta, but which Ferry would have known as a teenager as a single by The Platters. Featured on his second album Another Time, Another Place, it became a UK Top 20 for him in 1974, 15 years after the US vocal group’s recording had topped the chart.Classifiche".

In spite of all this, Taxi was in fact the most swiftly realised Ferry collection since 1978’s The Bride Stripped Bare, and proved vital to reigniting his creative energies – a further two albums would see the light of day during the following six year stretch. To understand this paradox, one must investigate the circumstances that surround the record’s creation.Filename F:\1988 - The Ultimate Collection\Bryan Ferry with Roxy Music - The Ultimate Collection.wav Six years elapsed between the release of Taxi, Bryan Ferry’s eighth solo album, and his previous release, Bête Noire. It was the most protracted artistic silence of his career, and in the intervening time he had become a father again, twice over, experienced the sad passing of his mother Mary Ann (to whom the record is dedicated), released two ‘Greatest Hits’ collections and witnessed the dissolution of the world’s largest nation state, the former Soviet Union.
