ROXY MUSIC DELUXE AND SUPER DELUXE EDITIONS

Roxy Music's legendary self-titled debut album from 1972 received an expanded box-set reissue on February 2, 2018.

The new Roxy Music is available in a range of formats. Remixed in 5.1 DTS 96/24 and Dolby AC3 Sound, the four-disc 12" x 12" Super Deluxe Edition features previously unreleased demos, outtakes, BBC radio sessions and rarely-seen live footage, in addition to a hundred-and-thirty-six-page book including rare and unpublished photographs and an essay by Richard Williams, who first wrote about the group for Melody Maker in 1971. The album is also available as a 2CD Deluxe Edition with a twenty-four-page booklet, and on 180g vinyl.

Roxy Music Deluxe Edition

The original Roxy Music is presented in the 1999 Bob Ludwig master, while the remainder of the audio has been mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road. The DVD includes promos and BBC TV appearances, as well as rare footage of Roxy Music performing at the Bataclan Club in Paris in November 1972, the only surviving visual document of this line-up live on stage.

When Roxy Music was originally released, on June 16, 1972, the band had less than ten gigs to their name, they had no two tracks the same in their repertoire and critics simply couldn't pin down their influences. As Richard Williams wrote at the time: "If Roxy Music go very much further, they'll be one of the great success stories of modern time."
