2019 German reissue on 100% virgin vinyl 3LP -with "Jealous Guy". While a new Roxy Music studio album remains a tantalising pipe dream for persons of a certain age, Live--featuring 22 sonically-consummate tracks recorded in 16 plushly-upholstered auditoriums, from Stuttgart to Adelaide via Vancouver--proves to be just the ticket for the luckless majority who missed the band's much-feted 2001 reunion world tour. When the news filtered out from the Strand in London that Roxy (Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson but, alas, no Brian Eno) were reconvening, headshaking sceptics anticipated a perfunctory nostalgia trip by superannuated globetrotters looking to increase their off-shore equity holdings. How wrong they were.

 While Live is consummately professional and exhibits an enviable attention to detail (Lucy Wilkins supplants Eddie Jobson's violin virtuosity on "Out of the Blue" and there are even revving motorbike noises on "Virginia Plain") it is far from clinically sterile. The grand old godfathers of glam still manage to stoke up a fire behind the likes of "Remake Remodel" and Brian Ferry continues to sing with all the sensory shudder of a man either handling a poisonous spider or having his back scratched by some delectable supermodel. Their influence is still palpable--Suede, for example, must have rewritten "Street Life" three times over. Pretty much everything on Live--from the art-rock chic of the early years to the urbane charisma of "Avalon"--sounds as topically fresh as today's edition of the six o'clock news. --Kevin Maidment
