Roxy Music, the art rock band synonymous with both style and substance, are releasing ‘Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Albums’, a box set of their eight acclaimed studio albums for the first time on vinyl, since their original releases. The eight vinyl albums, the first ever to be mastered in half-speed mastering, come packed in a glamourous box set, befitting of a band that intoxicated with its cool cocktail of fashion, romance, nostalgia and futurism.

‘Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Albums’ presents Roxy Music’s studio albums as they were originally meant to be seen and heard. The band’s album covers are legendary and became an integral part of what Roxy Music represented: cinematic imagery set to startling, otherworldly music. This elegant vinyl release allows a new generation of music fans to discover why Roxy Music, with Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno for the first two albums, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson, is considered one of the most influential British bands: adventurous, bewildering, stylish, sexy and beguiling. For all their imitators and admirers, no one has ever successfully cloned the unique and indefinable fusion of elements that made Roxy Music.

The eight albums: Roxy Music, For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life, Siren, Manifesto, Flesh&Blood and Avalon were all international top ten chart hits . The songs were often vignettes, paens to a world whose surface glitter hid heartache and lost: ‘Virginia Plain’, ‘Do The Strand’, ‘Pyjamarama’, ‘Street Life’, ‘Love is The Drug’, ‘Mother of Pearl’, ‘In Every Dream Home a Heartache’, ‘Both Ends Burning’ and ‘More Than This.’

Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Albums was mastered in half-speed mastering at t Abbey Road Studios by respected engineer Miles Schowell.
