Bryan Ferry in ‘truth in advertising’ shocker. Despite boasting contemporaneous recordings, Avonmore, his last long-player, sports a cover pic that’s over 40 years old, and was previously used to plug his second solo set, Another Time Another Place
In fact, the last time the Roxy Music mainman dared to use an up to date photo on an album was 1999’s Sinatra-style swinging covers project, As Time Goes By.
Time marches on for all of us, Bry, but why do bother when you’re still the coolest looking elder statesman of pop? You’ve aged far better than virtually all of your pop rivals, including, it has to be said, David Bowie in his final decade.
