Offered for sale is a still sealed white label promotional copy of For Your Pleasure, the second LP by Roxy Music.
This is the first issue on the Reprise label with a gatefold cover and includes a bio sheet that was issued only with promo copies.
About this copy: This copy of For Your Pleasure is an original 1973 pressing on the Reprise label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact except for a 2 inch (5 cm) tear at the center of the bottom edge.
There is a sticker that says, “Promotional Copy Not for Sale” attached to the cover.
There is a band biography sheet under the shrink wrap on the back cover. These biography sheets were only issued with promotional copies of the album, so the disc should have white promotional labels as shown on the third photo.
A beautiful copy of a very rare Roxy Music LP and likely your final upgrade.
Background: Released in 1973, For Your Pleasure was the second album by Roxy Music.
The album reached #193 on the U.S. charts, and #4 on the UK charts.
On Roxy Music’s debut, the tensions between Brian Eno and Bryan Ferry propelled their music to great, unexpected heights, and for most of the group’s second album, For Your Pleasure, the band equals, if not surpasses, those expectations. However, there are a handful of moments where those tensions become unbearable, as when Eno wants to move toward texture and Ferry wants to stay in more conventional rock territory; the nine-minute “The Bogus Man” captures such creative tensions perfectly, and it’s easy to see why Eno left the group after the album was completed. Still, those differences result in yet another extraordinary record from Roxy Music, one that demonstrates even more clearly than the debut how avant-garde ideas can flourish in a pop setting.
