Roxy Music to Drop 40th Ann. Set

 

Hugely influential UK band to drop Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Recordings on Aug. 6 in the UK and Aug. 28 in the States.

by Blurt Staff

 

“Love Is the Drug?” Nah, it’s Roxy Music. If you don’t already know this venerated UK group through their own hits (“More Than This,” “Avalon”), chances are Roxy inspired some of your favorite artists (Sex Pistols, Depeche Mode, Concrete Blonde, Morrissey). Either way, you’ll want to dig in to the comprehensive 10-disc set Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Recordings, coming later this summer from EMI. 

 

The label has remastered all eight of the Roxy’s studio albums: Roxy Music, For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life, Siren, Manifesto, Flesh + Blood, and Avalon. Naturally, there is bonus content – not one but two discs containing non-album singles, B-sides, and remixes including the US 7-inch mixes of “Do the Strand,” “Love Is The Drug,” and “Take A Chance With Me,” two edits of Country Life‘s opening track “The Thrill of it All,” its B-side “Your Application’s Failed” and the 7-inch single versions of “Oh Yeah” and “Avalon.”

 

Track listing below. Commence fiending.
