BF was never one to "overshare " with his fan base, but it is noteworthy that the last communication was back in June (seven month ago!)

Oh well, either he's OK or he's not. I guess we'll be updated at some point.

Maybe he's hoping to go out on tour sometime this spring/summer and is trying to navigate the future impact of Covid on his plans. And he wants to keep mum until he's ready to officially announce his tour dates. Just a guess...

And then there is the issue of celebrating Roxy's 50th anniversary. Who knows what that might entail...

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the seventies Ferry, reacquainting myself with my teenage years.
Such a wealth of material, and the one album that has really grown on me is Another Time, Another Place. It rocks in places, it has great sax in places, it has fabulous bass in places , and super backing vocals.
To my mature ears You are my Sunshine is not the aural labour of my youth , now it has soul, trumpet ( I think ) and real meaning.

Cher avalon_eyes,
Yet again you display consummate good taste.
ATAP is a brilliant showcase of our hero’s capacity to really make a song his own.
He chose great songs but he didn’t just cover them, he interpreted them - marvellous arrangements and great vocals.
As for the title track - wowser !
Salutations,
W2

My 1999 Subaru Wagon had a cassette tape player and I listened to my tape of ATAP all the time while driving here there and everywhere.

Those were good times.

When it came time and I had to sell the car (it had over 203,000 miles and the transmission had reached the end of the line) the last song that I listened to before driving into the dealer's lot was ATAP.

Drive Down Any Highway indeed!!!!

But I must admit that there were more than a few times when I fast forwarded through YAMS. I didn't hate it, but sometimes it was just to slow and long... Mea Culpa
