Roxy Music: Flesh + Blood (half-speed master/gloss-laminated finish) LP
|Out of stock
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. 1980's Flesh + Blood found the group trying their hand at a couple of well-chosen and disparate covers in the shape of the Wilson Pickett/Steve Cropper soul classic "In The Midnight Hour" and The Byrds' equally pristine psych-rock gem "Eight Miles High," alongside the original compositions "Oh Yeah" and "Over You." The album peaked at No. 1 in the UK, spending 60 weeks in total on the albums chart, while also climbing to No. 35 in the U.S. 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.
