BRYAN FERRY

I’ve known who / what Bryan Ferry is since 1972, when I tried the debut LP by Roxy Music.  I do not remember what I was expecting, but I had read about them (in the UK press).  I bought the LP @ Mundae Records, on the pier, in Belmont Shore, probably for $5 (or a penny less).  At any rate, I did not remain a Roxy Music fan for very long – my limited attention span notwithstanding.  And I did not initially go for Bryan Ferry solo records – at all.  It wasn’t until he started doing re-makes of Roxy Music songs that I actually liked that I bought anything of his solo career.
