"Roxy Music" and Country Life.

Avalon makes my ears bleed.

Life isn't about living your dreams...it's about soaking those dreams in bourbon and wine until all the pretty pictures smear into a puddle of nothingness and you forget what your dreams ever were in the first place.

My point? That Ferry's album is simply wonderful!
Great voice, great music.
Another undervalued Ferry's album is "In Your Mind":

Thanks for tips. As we speak, I am acquiring the first album the cheap way - which spells "soulseek". Frantic and demented, this is fun music!

May as well say, it's worth seeking out their boxed set, The Thrill of It All. It's four disks, which cover all the albums, except Viva!, on the first three disks, then devotes the fourth to non-LP A- and B-sides, and a couple of 12" mixes. With a few exceptions — "Virginia Plain," "Pyjamarama," and "Jealous Guy" (though typically in a shorter edit; this one runs 6:10) will usually turn up on best-ofs, and "Always Unknowing" (the B-side of the "Avalon" 12", I think) is on the Avalon SACD — you can't get this stuff elsewhere, and there is good stuff in there: "Lover," "Trash 2," "South Downs," the 12" version of "The Main Thing." It also has, in the albums part, the original mixes of "Dance Away" and "Angel Eyes" from Manifesto — these were replaced by their single remixes, but the original "Angel Eyes" blows the remix out of the water.

Of course, the negative is that if you get this, you'd need to get the individual albums to pick up the one or two tracks left off each.

I was waiting for someone to say that. I was too scared to... Thanks.

Re: Suaver than ever [re: Froggy Starlust]  

I have a confession to make, Froggy - last night I saw 'Enjoy The Silence' and although the video itself is crap I.. I actually liked that song. A lot. First it's Roxy Music, now DM.. odd.

Anyway, thanks for all the tips, people. I'm going for Country Life, saw it cheap at a local CD shop. Also, my friend lent me Avalon, nothing spectacular but still a nice pop record. I really enjoy Ferry's voice.
