A nice copy of a scarce (and pretty good) Roxy Music LP.
Background: First released in 1972, Roxy Music was the debut LP by the band of the same name and one of only two albums by the group issued while Brian Eno was a member.
The album reached #10 on the UK album charts but did not chart in the U.S.
The U.S. release included “Virginia Plain,” which had been a non-LP single in the UK.
Falling halfway between musical primitivism and art rock ambition, Roxy Music’s eponymous debut remains a startling redefinition of rock’s boundaries. Simultaneously embracing kitschy glamour and avant-pop, Roxy Music shimmers with seductive style and pulsates with disturbing synthetic textures. Although no musician demonstrates much technical skill at this point, they are driven by boundless imagination — Brian Eno’s synthesized “treatments” exploit electronic instruments as electronics, instead of trying to shoehorn them into conventional acoustic patterns…. That was the trick that elevated Roxy Music from an art school project to the most adventurous rock band of the early ’70s.
