Manifesto

LP (Item 474612) Atco, 1979 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 10

A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the same time that reflects a move away from heavier styles of earlier years, but never loses the edge of the group's best work. Manifesto also reflects some of the lessons learned by Bryan Ferry on his solo records – a bit leaner and cleaner presentation of the songs – but the album itself is also strongly a group production effort, and certainly feels that way in its use of Phil Manzenera's great guitars and Andy Mackay's horn arrangements. Titles include "Ain't That So", "Stranger Through The Years", "Trash", "Manifesto", "Angel Eyes", "Spin Me Round", "Cry Cry Cry", and "My Little Girl".

In The Morning
RCA, Late 60s. Very Good+
Swingin' vocal group pop (2 males and a female), recorded in RCA's Nashville studios, with a nice warm sound. The feel's a bit like We Five, but with a little bit less of the strident vocal sound that they have. Tracks include "Mr. Thompson", "Having Fun Again", "Sleepy ... LP, Vinyl record album
