About this deal

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.

Originally released in 1993, the album sees Ferry continue in his rich vein of sophisticated and contemporary cover versions of classic rock, pop and soul songs, forging his reputation as the greatest living interpreter of the popular song. The first 3 cuts are killer and there's only one let up, for me, on the entire CD and that's the title song-which is still excellent but in comparison to the other tracks, it's the my least favorite. When Ferry was asked about the album, he said "Since I started work on the Taxi album, everything has gone great for me. Rob Sheffield wrote in his three-star review of the album that " Taxi is a consistently inspired set that ranges from 'Amazing Grace' to 'All Tomorrow's Parties. The unlikely pairing of Ferry and bluesy guitarist Robin Trower works particularly well, the sound is full and atmospheric, and Ferry is in fine voice throughout.Reviewing for AllMusic, critic Ned Raggett wrote of the album: " Taxi shows a mature Bryan Ferry, suave and controlled, very much in line with his general career from 1979 on . It was first released in Japan on 10 March, before being released in the UK on 22 March and then in the US in April.

Bryan Ferry is an artist who, by his own admission, suffers frequent crises of confidence in his own music, and has junked whole albums that he feels do not meet his exacting standards. As ‘Taxi’ nears its 30th anniversary in March 2023 we are reminded of Bryan Ferry’s long tradition of reimagining songs from across the history of music, free from the bounds of genre and time.

Recue Me' is cool, and I find his almost robotic take on the hymnal 'Amazing Grace' utterly mesmerising.
