Essential music from Roxy Music – and a set of albums that have made our lives more wonderful for decades – and which still delight us tremendously as the years go on! Despite countless attempts to copy their sound and style, there's really never been another group like Roxy Music – a careful balance of sharp sounds and sensitive sonics, wit and wickedness, rock and restraint – all delivered in a complicated array of guitars, saxophone, keyboards, and basslines, topped with vocals by Bryan Ferry that send the whole thing home beautifully! It's hard to even begin to describe the power of these albums – especially the first five classics, Roxy Music, For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life, and Sire
n – but fortunately we don't have to, because the set includes them all – plus lots more. You also get the later gems Manifesto, Flesh & Blood, and Avalon – in which Ferry reinvented himself for the younger generation who was stealing his groove. The package is beautiful – a textured, super-heavy slipcover, filled with all the records in original artwork – and all albums are half-speed mastered, for really stunning sound!
