Bˆte Noire [Remaster]


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Digitally remastered reissue of the 1987 solo album from ex-Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry.
  • Shortly after the release of their 1982 masterpiece AVALON, Roxy Music went their separate ways. Singer Bryan Ferry, who had already released a handful of excellent solo recordings during his time with the band, put out a flurry of first-rate pop albums. First came 1985's BOYS AND GIRLS, followed by 1987's more rhythmically complex BETE NOIRE.
  • More resolutely dance driven than AVALON or BOYS AND GIRLS, BETE NOIRE features several international club hits, including "Limbo," the gentle "Zamba," and the excellent title track; all nine tracks are veneered with smooth Latin percussion. Ferry's solo recordings, with BETE NOIRE and BOYS AND GIRLS in particular, occupy an interesting if not altogether unique space in '80s popular music. More romantic than Talking Heads, and more world-weary than the Pet Shop Boys, Ferry has remained commercially successful without compromising his unique vision of lush, sophisticated pop music.
Professional Reviews
Q (2/00, pp.99-100) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...having been stylistically frozen by high concept soul....[it] lends Ferry's work a timeless quality....BETE NOIR is essentially a [step-] sister album to Roxy Music's sublime swansong [AVALON]....but with added percussion..."
