Ferry and company. reissue their eight studio albums during the year 2022.
Discussing Roxy Music’s self-titled debut album ahead of its historic anniversary, NME wrote: “After being fired as a ceramics teacher for singing in class, County Durham Fine Arts graduate Bryan Ferry auditioned to sing in London progressive rock band King Crimson. Although his voice didn’t fit, Robert Fripp of the band was still impressed and suggested Ferry call EG Records if he ever formed his own band.
In 2019, Bryan Ferry reunited with some of his Roxy Music bandmates for the band’s first performance in eight years as part of their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
