When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Roxy Music “Avalon”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day is the 1982 Roxy Music album, “Avalon.”

You have to wonder what American music buyers are thinking when this album peaks at #53 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts. Yikes.Not as on the edge of progressive rock as some of their earlier releases.

This album had more of a lush,… personal sound.

Feature the great vocals of Bryan Ferry, guitar of Phil Manzanera, drums by
Andy Newmark (with a little help from Rick Marotta), sax of Andy
Mackay.

Some fantasic backing vocals on the title track Avalon by Yanick Etienne.

Other outstanding tracks include the title cut, ‘More Than This, The Main Thing’ and “While My Heart is Still Beating.’
