Roxy Music - The Complete Studio Albums Collection

This is an excellent box set covering the remarkable studio output of Roxy Music. What you get are these wonderful albums:-

Roxy Music (1972)
For Your Pleasure (1973)
Stranded (1973)
Country Life (1974)
Siren (1975)
Manifesto (1979)
Flesh & Blood (1980)
Avalon (1983)

(To read in depth reviews of the individual albums, click on the title).

An extra CD of non-album singles, all their ‘b’ sides and some extended “dance/12” versions
The sound quality is superbly and subtly remastered, although the sound is a bit low so you have to turn the volume up a little compared to other recordings. Personally, I didn’t have a problem with the 1999 remasters, so I am happy to play either as I own them all. I don’t have a problem with the facsimile album covers all being gatefold either, even though some of the original vinyl covers were not designed as such. It really doesn’t bother me. It is the music that I go for, and it sounds great, with a nicely balanced sound. Highly recommended - a fine collection of music from this innovative, ground-breaking band. I have reviewed all the albums’ music under their individual listings.
