Back To 1977

Lounging around in the sixth form, chasing girls, drinking Boddington's and wishing I was as cool as Bryan Ferry. That was me, and half the teenagers in the country in 1977.

Bryan Ferry has written some of the finest pop songs ever written and has always played with some of the world's best musicians. Here is one of his finest from that vintage year of 1977, the title track from his fourth solo album, In Your Mind:

In fact I'd forgotten what a damn fine album In Your Mind is, so here's a bonus track from it, Rock of Ages:

Couldn't agree with you more Greg. I may not agree with all your politicking stuff but your taste in music's still pretty good!

Eh up Dave, belated Happy New Year, great to hear from you. Hope you're well.

Only got the Best of Roxy at home, but yeah Ferry was clearly a very cool dude.

Listening to bands like Icehouse makes you realise just how inflential he was on the music that followed him.

Maybe a cliched choice, but 'More than This' is my fave of his work.
