Waterstones Says

Full of romantic allure and cinematic imagery, this sumptuous collection of lyrics from the Roxy Music frontman and solo superstar covers all Ferry's classic songs alongside some little known gems.

Signed Edition

A Standard Edition is available here

Bryan Ferry's evocative lyrics of aspiration and romantic longing, introduced by the author and published on the 50th anniversary of the first Roxy Music album.

Bryan Ferry's work as a singer and songwriter, both as a solo artist and with Roxy Music, is legendary.Lyrics collects the words written for music across seventeen albums, from the first iconic Roxy album of 1972 via the masterpiece of Avalon to 2014's Avonmore, introduced by the author, with an insightful essay by James Truman.

All the classic Roxy anthems are here - 'Virginia Plain', 'Do the Strand', 'Love is the Drug', 'The Thrill of it All' - songs in which the real and the make-believe blend in a kaleidoscopic mix, shot through with cinematic allure.

Also included are the evocative lyrics of romantic longing and lost illusions for which Ferry is rightly revered: 'Slave to Love', 'Mother of Pearl', 'More Than This'. As he writes in his preface, 'The low points in life so often produce the most keenly felt and best loved songs.' And, it might be added, some of the best poetry.
