This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

To coincide with the band celebrating their 50th anniversary, Roxy Music's career-encompassing collection from 2001 is available for the first time on vinyl. Containing all of their classic singles including "More Than This", "Jealous Guy", "Love Is the Drug", "Virginia Plain" and classic album cuts, it's a definitive testament to one of the most influential and daring artist catalogs of all time.

This beautifully presented 2 LP set includes enhanced artwork and full song lyrics.

The Best of Roxy Music is an excellent summary of the group's hits and album highlights between 1972 and 1982. There are really two editions of Roxy Music, the glam rock unit that achieved widespread U.K. success from 1972 to 1975, and the more polished one that was a broader international success from 1979 to 1982. The compilers have dealt with the dichotomy and the more lasting popularity of the later recordings by presenting the compilation in reverse chronological order, so that soft rock hits like 'Over You' and 'Dance Away,' which scored in America, come before U.K.-only hits like 'Street Life' and 'Virginia Plain,' which rock much harder.
-William Ruhlmann, AllMusic
Love the middle period when they were shedding the angular rhythms and modular synth squawks and heading more toward a lush pop sound? Head to side two where 'Dance Away' and 'Same Old Scene' reside. Just go for the early, funny stuff? Side four is your best bet as it features classics like 'Pyjamarama' and 'Street Life.' Whatever the sequence of tracks, there's not a duff tune on this collection and they sound better than ever thanks to the mastering work of Miles Showell.
-Robert Ham, Paste Magazine
