Roxy Music – On The Road Live

Roxy Music are an English art rock group formed in 1971 by art school graduate Bryan Ferry, who became the group’s vocalist and chief songwriter. They attained popular and critical success in the UK and Europe during the 1970s and early 1980s, beginning with their Top 10 debut album, Roxy Music (1972). The band was a significant influence on early English punk music, as well as providing a model for many New Wave acts and the experimental electronic groups of the early 1980s. The group is distinguished by their visual and musical sophistication and their preoccupation with style and glamour.

Roxy Music – On the Road Live was recorded in the year their avant-garde album Manifesto was released, and the live concert reflects just how progressive and, at the same time, ultra-cool, this group was (and, judging by the recent Australian revival tour, still is). The concert includes songs the Roxy aficionados have always loved – In Every Dream Home a Heartache, Editions of You, Virginia Plain and more. Recorded at a packed house at Manchester’s Apollo Theatre.
