A hidden treasure in the Roxy canon, Country Life is an assured album covering many styles and honeyed pop hits; All I Want Is You and Out Of The Blue are the classics, but just listen to the sweetness of A Really Good Time.
Roxy Music's self-titled seminal debut album, released in 1972, firmly put Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno at the forefront of the art-rock movement. Their penchant for glamour was showcased in the lyrics and immortalized in the 1950sstyle album cover.
Stranded gave Roxy Music their first #1 album in the UK and brought with it an undeniable presence that would see the American audience take note. It was becoming all too clear that Roxy Music were ahead of their time.
It was preceded by the single "Over You," a #5 UK hit that also provided the band with a rare entry on Billboard's Hot 100 at #80. Flesh + Blood also included covers of The Byrds' "Eight Miles High" and Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour."
