Where it all began . . .

Roxy Music’s ground-breaking debut album is expanded in an exclusive super-deluxe package featuring rare and previously unavailable material. The release is nothing short of a milestone; the first time Roxy Music’s archives have been opened, offering rare and genuinely never-heard-before material outside Roxy’s inner circle.

Roxy Music, led by the inimitable Bryan Ferry, were the first post-modern pop group; stylishly mixing culture, art, film and music into one singular, space-age cocktail. And, unlike many performers of their era, they had no past – they emerged fully formed with no visible artefacts of dalliances with beat or hippydom; here they were, as if beamed from another planet with their love songs about the golden age of Hollywood, cars and the Battle of Britain.

45 years later, with the group’s involvement, we get an opportunity to fully assess the album, and most importantly, listen as Roxy evolved and developed. The box set provides a thrilling capture of Roxy Music in 1971/1972. Hear the demo tape that caught the attention of writer Richard Williams that ultimately led to their deal with EG Management and then Island Records. Listen to the BBC Sessions which saw the group hone their craft. Enjoy something very special indeed with unheard glimpses into their working methods in the studio – prepared exclusively by Bryan Ferry and producer Rhett Davies, alternate session versions have been put forward for every album track, plus Virginia Plain. The original album is presented in the 1999 Bob Ludwig master, while the reminder of the audio has been mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road.
