“The Right Stuff” was issued as the lead single from Bryan Ferry’s seventh solo album, “Bête Noire.”  The track’s foundation is derived from “Money Changes Everything”, an instrumental written by Johnny Marr for the B-side of The Smiths’ single “Bigmouth Strikes Again”, released a year earlier. The track was mixed by Alan Meyerson and edited by The Latin Rascals.

INFO > Bryan Ferry is no stranger to a soundtrack—his music has been featured in multiple movies, dating back to the 1976 flop “All This And World War II”, and more recently in the 2013 cinematic adaptation of “The Great Gatsby.” Penned by Bernie Taupin and produced by Trevor Horn, “Dance With Life” was recorded for the 1996 fantasy film “Phenomenon.” The single release includes two more of Ferry’s soundtrack contributions: “Is Your Long Strong Enough?” from 1985’s “Legend”; and “Help Me” from the 1986 remake of “The Fly.”

LIVE > The legendary Mr. Ferry will grace Philadelphia’s historic Tower Theater this evening as part of a globe-trotting tour to promote his pending new album, “Avonmore.” Ferry is expected to perform classic songs from his 40+ year solo career, as well as choice tracks from the Roxy Music catalog.

Love Is The Drug (1996)

Very special thanks to Musicus for sharing this addictive single.

02 Love Is The Drug (Rollo & Sister Bliss Monster Mix)
03 Love Is The Drug (Original Version)
04 Love Is The Drug (Rollo & Sister Bliss Deep Mix)

INFO > The 1990s were the defining decade for dance culture, giving popular rise to the remix, the mix album, the superclub, and the superstar DJ. During that halcyon period, many classic tunes were dusted off and polished up for new audiences. Roxy Music’s 1975 hit “Love Is The Drug” was injected with new energy by Rowland Armstrong and Ayalah Bentovim for this 1996 reissue.

What’s the deal with Ferry’s eyepatch?

INFO > The UK commercial issue of “Limbo” was posted back in March 2011; curiously, that was the most dl-ed file before MF pulled the plug this past May (although I’m always suspicious of their stats; FYI – it’s back up). The ‘Brooklyn Version’ is digitally exclusive to this promo, as is the ‘Latin Version’ here with the cold ending.
