More Roxy Music half-speed vinyl

Last four studio albums confirmed

As revealed back in February, UMC/Virgin is issuing all eight Roxy Music albums as half-speed mastered pressings. Stranded and Country Life are out today and release dates for the final four albums are now available.

Siren (1975, featuring ‘Love is the Drug’) and Manifesto (1979, featuring ‘Dance Away’ & ‘Angel Eyes’) are both released on 10 June 2022, while Flesh + Blood (1980, featuring ‘Over You’) and the final studio album Avalon (1982, featuring ‘More Than This’ and the title track) follow three weeks later on 1 July 2022.

These new 2022 pressings are brand new half-speed versions cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road and the artwork for these has been ‘revised’ with lyrics and a “deluxe gloss laminated finish”. Notably, they do not feature the now common Abbey Road branded half-speed master OBI-strips, presumably because Bryan Ferry doesn’t want such froth spoiling the cover art!
