Bryan Ferry: The In Crowd (a-side)

Bryan Ferry while still the vocalist and principal songwriter with Roxy Music started a parallel solo career in 1973. Initially specialising in cover versions of old standards, such as on the album "These Foolish Things" released in October 73.
Members of Roxy Music did play on Ferry's solo albums to some degree but Ferry's solo career eventually out lived the first coming of Roxy Music.

After tours to support the "Siren" album in 1976, Roxy Music disbanded, only to re-form three years later when Bryan Ferry's solo career was on the slide.

"The In Crowd" is a cover of the old Northern Soul song by Dobie Gray. It peaked at # 13 in June 1974 on the UK charts.
