Bryan Ferry - Boys and Girls (1999) Retail CD
When Bryan Ferry's sixth studio album was released in the June of 1985 as a long-standing fan of "Bryan's" music and that of "Roxy Music", I bought it with out hearing a single track apart from the single "Slave to Love" (which was featured extensively on the soundtrack to the movie "9 ½ weeks" and reached number 10 in the U.K. charts, the album itself gave Bryan his first solo number 1 album. What we the listening public where treated to was basically the continuation of the ideas and themes on the last "Roxy Music" album "Avalon" which is full of soundscapes and sonic textures.But for thismore… version of Bryan's vision it looks like he created a wish list of musicians for the project and everyone he asked came to the party, the list reads like a who's who of the music world at that time, David Gilmour (from "Pink Floyd"), Nile Rodgers (from "Chic"), Tony Levin (from Peter Gabriel's recording sessions), Mark Knopler of "Dire Straits" fame and David Sanborn from the jazz world, to name but a few of the 30 musicians that Mr Ferry used in recording "Boys and Girls" various recording studios round the world from "Air studios" in London to "Power Station" in New York, in total there was 7 studios used. The album as before opens with what sounds like an orchestra tuning up and then the sound of a kick drum can be heard being the track "Sensation" to life, this track has many layers of textures that can be best described as a soundscape, with David Gilmour's guitar at the forefront of the track, his distinctive playing bringing real sense of drama to the song. The following song "Slave to Love" with the sounds of rolling thunder and hooting of an owl in the background, now have these effects panning from left to right as they did before, but now even more so, a real audio treat.The second single from the album "Don't stop the Dance" has David Sanborn as the featured solo artist and with the higher resolution of this version you the listener are treated to clearer sounding saxaphone playing from Mr Sanborn you can now really feel what he playing now as well as hearing it. The next track "A Wasteland" is very short and feels like an introduction to the next song "Windswept".Now with this version of the album the listener can hear the stellar cast of players and musicians that Mr Bryan Ferry has assembled with greater clarity across all 9 tracks that this album contains.This version was re-mastered to HDCD standard in September 1999 by one of the masters of the process one Bob Ludwig of "Gateway studios", a couple of weeks earlier to this release the mini-LP version came out, which is the same sonically the only difference is the packaging re-creates the vinyl sleeve in miniature.
