Limited Edition 180g 8LP Box Set! Half Speed Mastered at Abbey Road Studios!

‘Roxy Music: The Studio Albums’ presents Roxy Music’s studio albums as they were originally meant to be seen and heard. The band’s album covers are legendary and became an integral part of what Roxy Music represented: cinematic imagery set to startling, otherworldly music. This elegant vinyl release allows a new generation of music fans to discover why Roxy Music, with Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno for the first two albums, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson, is considered one of the most influential British bands: adventurous, bewildering, stylish, sexy and beguiling. For all their imitators and admirers, no one has ever successfully cloned the unique and indefinable fusion of elements that made Roxy Music. Aesthetically ‘The Studio Albums’ takes its cue from the collectible, long-deleted vinyl set from 1980, ‘Roxy Music – The First 7 Albums.'

The eight albums: Roxy Music, For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life, Siren, Manifesto, Flesh & Blood and Avalon were all international top ten chart hits . The songs were often vignettes, paeans to a world whose surface glitter hid heartache and loss: ‘Do The Strand,’ ‘Pyjamarama,’ ‘Street Life,’ ‘Love is The Drug,’ ‘Mother of Pearl,’ ‘In Every Dream Home a Heartache,’ ‘Both Ends Burning,’ and ‘More Than This.’ Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Albums was mastered in half-speed mastering at Abbey Road Studios by respected engineer Miles Showell.

From their earliest steps, Roxy left a massive footprint on British popular culture. They were formed in 1971 by Ferry, Mackay and Brian Eno, the axis completed with Manzanera's official arrival early next year, by which time the music press was buzzing. Their self-titled debut album in the summer of '72 - declared by many then and ever since as the best first album ever - cleared the path for a saunter into the U.K. top five by the ravishingly stylish first single "Virginia Plain." Before the year ended, Roxy had completed their opening tours of both the U.K. and U.S.. For once, fans in the industry and in the real world were unanimous: here was a triumph of style AND substance.

Almost everything that happened chez Roxy during the next decade, and seven more studio albums, has become part of the fabric of rock history, from rule-trashing singles like "Pyjamarama," "Street Life," and "Love Is The Drug" to Bryan's ever-influential wardrobe and those legendary album covers. Three times they topped the album charts during their active lifetime, with 1973's Stranded, 1980's Flesh and Blood and their last studio album Avalon, and it wasn't long before the compilation album Street Life raced to No.1 in 1986 and stayed there five weeks.
