“Another Time, Another Place” by Bryan Ferry - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1974Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

Predominantly another covers album from the smooth one, although he did write the title-track which closes the LP. There may not be anything to rival “Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall” but, all in all, the set is consistently stronger than the debut. “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” is completely wonderful, a big production job which does justice to the great song. The Joe South cover “Walk A Mile In My Shoes” is another fantastic highlight – Ferry is such a great expressionist, his soul girl choir are a nice touch, and the ensemble make for a glorious support with strings, horns and brass bursting out with craziness left, right and centre over the funky rhythm section. This glamorous brand of soul is a very uniquely cultivated creation. “You Are My Sunshine” is another good example – another winning psalm from brother Bryan and his disciples, a sure-fire winner with the worshipers.
