More than this?

One of the very few bands in musical history whose photo has never graced the front of one of their own LPs, Roxy Music (who are celebrating their 40 years in showbiz this year) produced some of the most instantly-recognisable cover art since the birth of the long-playing record:


1972 - Roxy Music


1973 - For Your Pleasure


1973 - Stranded


1974 - Country Life


1975 - Siren


1979 - Manifesto


1980 - Flesh and Blood


1982 - Avalon

"Well i´m here looking through an old picture frame
Just waiting for the perfect view
I hope something special will step in to my life
Another fine edition of you"

  3. Thanks for the cover art! I think Avalon is one of my all-time favourite LP's. I'm sorry I don't have the vinyl edition anymore.

  4. Ah, Weissdorn - welcome on board! I don't have any of the Roxy Music albums on vinyl either, more's the pity, just their "Greatest Hits" from 1977... Jx
