Country Life Half-Speed Master LP
The first Roxy album to break the US Top 40 demonstrated that, four records in, the band were every bit as hungry, audacious and pioneering as on their debut two years earlier. Opening with the urgent, propulsive ëThe Thrill Of It Allí, ëCountry Lifeí effortlessly embraces avant-garde song structures, touching ballads, English nostalgia, visceral hard rock, European influences and even medieval Christian references without skipping a beat. The resulting album is an yet another immensely satisfying musical experienceÖ compared to their peers itís almost frightening what sounds Roxy Music could perfect and make their own.
To mark the 50th anniversary of Roxy Music ëCountry Lifeí has been given a fresh Half-Speed cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London while the album artwork has been similarly revised with lyrics and a deluxe gloss laminated finish.SIDE A 1.
