An essential collection for the casual listener
The best of many Roxy/Ferry collections.

""Bryan Ferry" once sang with "Roxy Music", and between them there are many collections. "Bryan Ferry" himself has no "best of", that I'm aware of, other than an album of his ballads. "Roxy Music" has one, but no "Ferry" solo stuff on it. Then there are a few "Roxy/Ferry" collections around. The 20 track "Street Life", which is pretty good, but out of print. The "Ultimate Collection", which is 15 tracks, not as good, and out of print. Another entitled "More Than This", which is roughly the same as this one, and out of print. And Finally this one, which is also called "More Than This", and IN print, but is an import. These are all fairly similar, in length and song selection, but the others you may have to search more for. But between them all, I think this one has the best "Roxy Music", and "Bryan Ferry" songs, just at an import price. So you could get this, or look through the used stores in town for the others. Or you could always just get "Avalon" from "Roxy Music", or "Boys & Girls" from "Bryan Ferry". Luckily, it's all incredibly cool."
Most of the essentials from his peak years

"Bryan Ferry, either solo or as lead singer with Roxy music, made the top ten of the British charts in the seventies and eighties with fifteen singles and an extended play EP. He also had several other hits so they couldn't all be included here.Bryan wrote a lot of his own material but he also recorded some distinctive covers. Two of the songs here date back to the thirties. Of course, most people remember the Platters for Smoke gets in your eyes, but it was actually written in 1934. The other oldie, These foolish things, was originally an American number one hit for Benny Goodman in 1936. Bryan eventually emphasized his love for such songs by recording a whole album of them later in his career. Other distinctive covers include Jealous Guy (John Lennon), which provided Bryan with his only UK number one hit, and A hard rain's a gonna fall (Bob Dylan).Most of the essentials are here including all the songs already mentioned plus Let's stick together, Virginia plain, Love is the drug, Dance away, Angel eyes, Oh yeah and More than this - are here. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that apart from some of the minor hits, Over you (a top five UK hit) and the UK top ten hits Price of love, This is tomorrow and Pyjamarama are also missing.A single CD cannot do full justice to Bryan's music but this is a strong collection."
