Roxy Music – Live at City Hall, Newcastle – October 29, 1974 – BBC In Concert – Radio 1 –
Something special this week in case you missed their concert in Los Angeles this past week. The legendary Roxy Music, recored on the last night of their European tour on October 29, 1974, just a few days ahead of the release of their milestone Country Life album.
Always an innovative band, with a virtual who’s who of Progressive icons, Roxy Music were without a doubt, one of the most influential bands of the 1970s and 1980s – and as individuals, Bryan Ferry has been discovered by an entirely new generation of listeners, Brian Eno continues to blaze trails and astonish fans, Phil Manzanera continues his journey and his critical acclaim – and on it goes.
Individually and collectively, the legacy of Roxy Music hasn’t aged at all. Although the early material could be considered a bit dated for it’s leanings towards Glam, the core of their musical message hasn’t changed. Still innovative, still pioneering and still gathering acclaim.
Tonight it’s a nod to the early 70s, with a recap of what they were up to prior to Country Life. A great show and a great audience – and a lot of good times to be had by all.
Play very loud.
