Previews

Rolling Stone (2/3/00, p.61) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...ferry's voice has aged handsomely as the rest of him, with a rough, smoky edge making his instrument more intimate than ever....a painfully erotic meditation on age, memory and staying power..."
Spin (12/99, pp.226,228) - 6 out of 10 - "...covering the classic standards of cabaret....he's so purist, so '30s....His covers are smooth and warmhearted, making this album...pleasant..."
Entertainment Weekly (10/29/99, p.115) - "...his elegant restraint works wonders on the material ['30s standards], and the minimal arrangements are lovely..." - Rating: B
Q (12/99, p.131) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...there is a reflective, jazz-swing mood to these tracks....Ferry always was a theatrical crooner, and here he is in his element. What could have been an exercise in whimsy comes over instead as subtle and full of emotion."
Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, p.122) - "...a slope through the 1930s....Bryan gets into character as some kind of Hungarian-born Cockney, a weird amalgam of Anthony Newley and Zsa Zsa Gabor..."

Back in the early '70s, Bryan Ferry released a pair of albums, THESE FOOLISH THINGS and ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE. With the exception of the title track on the latter, both records consist entirely of Ferry's reinterpretations of other artists' songs, all of which bear his own personal stamp. AS TIME GOES BY, which was released in 1999, is another collection of covers, which were taken primarily from the '30s. This time around, however, the songs are fairly faithful renditions of the originals, even down to the addition of artificial "surface noise" and the "canning" of Ferry's vocals to simulate the sonic idiosyncrasies of a old-fashioned, hank-cranked record player.
The best tracks here are the ones on which Ferry is clearly having some fun, as on "When Somebody Thinks You're Wonderful" and "Sweet and Lovely," both of which feature the kind of scat trumpet playing that Louis Armstrong made famous. Other standouts include "Lover Come Back to Me," with its jazz guitar/piano combination; "I'm in the Mood for Love," which recalls the brilliance and sophistication of Ferry's late-period work with Roxy Music circa-FLESH + BLOOD; and "Where or When," which features one of his great tortured vocals, accompanied by graceful strings.
