The sands of time have piled up over the grave of Roxy Music, all but obscuring them from our memories - sad when you listen to this CD and realise how cool they were!
'Virginia Plain' endures in the national consciousness, but it's not the best song here. 'Dance Away', 'These Foolish Things', 'More Than This' and my favourite, 'Over You' are all gorgeous songs, delivered in Bryan Ferry's trademark half-sleazy, half-romantic style.
And you can't forget 'Avalon', 'Slave to Love' or 'Let's Stick Together' either. If that pop 'reworking' of 'More Than This' that surfaced in the charts a few months ago still leaves an unpleasant taste, get this CD and listen all the way through - it's excellent.
