Bryan Ferry / The Jazz Age 10-inch signed folio limited edition

Bryan Ferry / The Jazz Age Folio edition

Folio edition contains six 10″ vinyl records

A few weeks ago we informed you about Bryan Ferry‘s new album, The Jazz Age, which takes some of his classic songs and transforms them into 1920’s style instrumentals performed by a  Jazz Orchestra.

We mentioned that the album was being released in a 10-inch ‘folio’ edition but didn’t realise at the time that this was going to be a very special limited edition produced by The Vinyl Factory.

This release consists of six 10-inch vinyl records, housed in a hardback folio with exclusive screen printed artwork, with each of the 500 copies hand-signed and numbered by Bryan Ferry.

Limited Edition details:
• 500 copies worldwide, each hand signed and numbered by Bryan Ferry
• Hardback Folio with screen printed artwork by French poster artist Paul Colin
• Six x 10″ vinyl records, each with bespoke label artwork
• Essay and credits screen printed on folio, outer spine silver foiled

None of this attention to detail comes cheap and this edition will retail at £150. It is available to pre-order now, exclusively from The Vinyl Factory. Release date 3 December 2012.

    As a long-time Ferry/Roxy fan I find this release somewhat baffling, in as far as it raises the question of how little music involvement is required from Ferry himself before it ceases to be actually a Bryan Ferry album. Note – it’s billed as The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, not Bryan Ferry. It is totally instrumental and, from what I’ve seen elsewhere, Ferry doesn’t play a note on it himself – he’s listed on the credits as “Director and Co-Producer”. The Ferry voice is not what it was in days of yore and writer’s block has plagued him since the 80s – gone are the days when he and Roxy churned out 3 albums in a year (1973), hence a re-cycling of old material in a new incarnation. The “As Time Goes By” album and tour in the late 90s were highly enjoyable but at least the man himself was centre stage. This is like Jagger booking the London Symphony Orchestra to record a version of “Gimme Shelter” and then calling it a Stones album. There are some terrific musicians on this, no question about that, but it’s not the new Bryan Ferry album in my book.

    • ridiculous! he did the arrangements. Did Jackie Gleason play on his albums? Does Sir Neville M. play on his albums? Nelson Riddle? Come on. This is a work of genius… on so many levels.

    Given that it’s a single song per side, in a 10″ format, I wonder if they are recorded at 78 rpm.
    I have it in digital format and the album is wonderful.
