There is not a poor song on this album which contains probably the two most accessible pop songs in Bryan's solo career with the upbeat "Let's Stick Together" and "The Price of Love". Previously released on earlier Roxy albums, the inclusion of "Sea Breezes, Remake Remodel, Chance Meeting, Casanova" and "2 HB" sound more polished and may indicate that Bryan thought he could improve on the originals - personally I like the differing versions of the songs anyway - it's as though he has 'ready-made' his own songs over. The versions here sound more intimate, particularly "2HB, Casanova" and "Chance Meeting". The foot stomping "Shame, Shame, Shame" is a great, rocking, solid track that is instantly likeable. "You Go To My Head" and the Beatles penned "It's Only Love" are good inclusions, and I also like Bryan's version of Gallagher and Lyle's "Heart On My Sleeve" which is a great way of ending the album.

The remastering on this cd is very good and the 8 page sleeve contains lyrics to all of the songs as well as a list of players.

In 1976 this was Bryan Ferry's first release since the break up of Roxy Music the year before. It brings together a series of singles, b-sides and 5 re-interpretions of earlier Roxy numbers, 4 of them from the 1st album plus a new version of "Casanova" from Country Life. As such it is a fine compilation for Ferry fans pulling into one place tracks previously only available on singles. The new versions of the Roxy tracks are smoother than the originals foretelling the direction Ferry would take when he reconvened the group in 1978. Not withstanding that they are all worth hearing though I believe none surpass their original incarnations. The singles are great showing Ferry's gift of interpreting other peoples work and making it his own. Stand out tracks are the title song and a cover of the Beatles' "It's Only Love"
