Roxy Music: Avalon (half-speed master/gloss-laminated finish) LP
Roxy Music, the art rock band synonymous with both style and substance, intoxicated with its cool cocktail of fashion, romance, nostalgia and futurism. Their album covers are also legendary and became an integral part of what Roxy Music represented: cinematic imagery set to startling, otherworldly music. For all their imitators and admirers, no one has ever successfully cloned the unique and indefinable fusion of elements that made Roxy Music icons. The most commercially successful Roxy Music album and also their last, Avalon, was originally issued in 1982, charting at No. 1 and lingering on the UK album charts for over a year, with three singles including the Top 5 "More Than This." The album art features Ferry's girlfriend and soon to be wife Lucy Helmore as the cover girl. This vinyl reissue is mastered at half-speed and cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. It also features revised artwork with a gloss laminated finish.
