- One of the best copies to ever hit the site, with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or close to it on both sides
- This original UK Island pressing is bigger, richer, more Tubey Magical, clearer, and with better bass – it knocked us out
- Outside of the first three Roxy albums, there is simply no recording by the band that as good as the first three Bryan Ferry solo projects
- “Ferry for the most part looked to America, touching on everything from Motown to the early jazz standard that gave the collection its name… Wrapping up with a grand take on “These Foolish Things” itself, this album is one of the best of its kind by any artist.” – All Music
We had a nice stack of British copies to play and are happy to report that this one had an unbeatable Triple Plus (A+++) side two backed with a killer Double to Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side one, both on very quiet vinyl. Anyone who digs Roxy Music or Bowie’s Pin-Ups is going to find a lot to like here. Check out the cool cover of A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall that kicks off side one!
The sound positively JUMPS out of the speakers and fills the room. There’s loads of Tubey Magic, big punchy drums, and depth to the soundfield. (more…)
