Background: Released in 1974, Country Life was the fourth album by Roxy Music.

The album reached #3 on the UK charts, and #37 on the U.S. charts.

The album cover was controversial in the United States, where it was originally sold with green shrink wrap covering the front cover.  Later U.S. pressings used a different photo without the two women.

Allmusic.com gave Country Life a well-deserved 5 star review:

Continuing with the stylistic developments of Stranded, Country Life finds Roxy Music at the peak of their powers, alternating between majestic, unsettling art rock and glamorous, elegant pop/rock. …And, in many ways, Country Life offers the greatest and most consistent set of Roxy Music songs, illustrating their startling depth. From the sleek rock of “All I Want Is You” and “Prairie Rose” to the elegant, string-laced pop of “A Really Good Time,” Country Life is filled with thrilling songs, and Roxy Music rarely sounded as invigorating as they do here.
