Roxy Music - Manifesto (Half-Speed Master) LP
Mastered at Half-Speed and Cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios
Roxy Music, the art rock band synonymous with both style and substance, intoxicated with its cool cocktail of fashion, romance, nostalgia and futurism. The band's album covers are also legendary and became an integral part of what Roxy Music represented: cinematic imagery set to startling, otherworldly music. For all their imitators and admirers, no one has ever successfully cloned the unique and indefinable fusion of elements that made Roxy Music. A four year gap preceded the release of sixth full-length Manifesto in 1979, which reached No. 7 in the UK charts and featured an eye catching album cover of mannequins conceptualized by Ferry and long time designer and Roxy Music collaborator Antony Price. Manifesto produced three singles including the No. 2 hit "Dance Away" and "Angel Eyes." This 180g vinyl LP reissue is mastered at half-speed and cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.
