Biography

From their earliest steps, Roxy left a massive footprint on British popular culture. They were formed in 1971 by Ferry, Mackay and Brian Eno, the axis completed with Manzanera's official arrival early next year, by which time the music press was buzzing. Their self-titled debut album in the summer of '72 - declared by many then and ever since as the best first album ever - cleared the ... Read more in Amazon's Roxy Music Store

Customer Reviews

Give it a listen.
Rochambeau Fan
This 1980 album from Roxy Music has no bad tracks, three or four very good ones, and two songs that are excellent.
M. L. Whitlock
This is classic Bryan Ferry with Roxy Music - a class act.

Sadly, FLESH & BLOOD is considered to be one of the lesser Roxy Music albums. While it is clearly not as chaotic and amazing as, say, FOR YOUR PLEASURE and COUNTRY LIFE, or as expertly crafted as the later AVALON, it is a collection of amazingly well-written, well-played songs that come together quite nicely. Furthermore, if one listens to many of the songs on FLESH & BLOOD, they will realize why Roxy Music was so far ahead of their time. Songs on this disc look forward to not only AVALON, but also works by other bands of that era such as DURAN DURAN and BLONDIE, to name just two.
IF you can get past the mediocre, at best, covers of EIGHT MILES HIGH and THE MIDNIGHT HOUR, you will be in for a treat. OVER YOU, OH YEAH, SAME OLD SCENE, MY ONLY LOVE, and RUNNING WILD rank as some of the finest Ferry-penned songs of the 1980's. Give it a listen. You won't be disappointed!

In 1980 Roxy Music released Flesh & Blood. The beginning of the Ferry Lounge Lizard phase, it was less than favourably received by the critics who continued to expect ground breaking progressive rock from Bry & the Boys. For me this is the least dated sounding of all the albums and probably the most influential in terms of the New Wave thing that occured with OMD, Simple Minds, Human League, ABC et al. Highlights are the Byrd`s Eight Miles High with the Funky brilliant, ending. Over You a great pop tune. My Only Love, Ferry`s ode to whoever he was involved with at the time. Oh Yeah another poignant moment with great vocal delivery. I just wonder what McKay did whilst waiting for his sax pieces which are few & far between. It appears Roxy were pretty much Ferry, Manzanera, McKay at this time with lots of session superstars, Andy Newmark, Paul Carrick ex Squeeze & other mid 70 British pop bands, Neil Hubbard & Garry Tibbs on bass of Adam & the Ants became Roxy`s touring bassist. Realistically there are no weak moments on the album. A step up from Manifesto & certainly Siren.

Of Roxy Music's eight studio releases, "Flesh + Blood" tends to be the most overlooked. While probably not the best (the usual nod for that goes to either "Siren" or "Avalon") or filled with the jaded ennui of their first four albums, "Flesh + Blood" marks the transition that was fully realized in "Avalon" to a quieter, less threatening (and Brian Eno-less) Roxy Music. The opening track, a cover of Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" paves the way for a more tuneful, less quirky album, filled with sentimental gems such as "Oh Yeah" (one outstanding make-out track) and "My Only Love" and the brooding "Flesh And Blood." It's a fine collection of tunes, and serves as an excellent starting point for people interesting in checking out one of the most underrated bands of the '70's and early '80's.

When I was in college, I went to England already an avid fan of Avalon and Boys and Girls. I was visiting an English boy who I thought was going to be the love of my life, and he said, "Oh, you must get Flesh and Blood." It was the one great thing he gave me, and I thank him for it. The title and the cover reeled me in, but then when I heard it, phew! that was enough for me. The Same Old Scene, My Only Love, and yes, I loved the cover of Eight Miles High! Of course, Running Wild suited me perfectly as I was a young lady who thought being in love was all that mattered in the world. But, I listened to it again recently, and now I'm 33; it still hit me the same way, now with a hint of nostalgia that made me remember all those wonderful emotions and beautiful places I'd been to. Do yourself a favor and get it.

Format: Audio CD
The reformed Roxy Music of the late seventies still released great singles, but somehow lost the knack for making great albums. Flesh and Blood, the band's second full-length from this period and their seventh total, is mostly comprised of worthwhile material, but has a few wretched fillers that drag the overall album down. Banal covers of The Byrds' Eight Miles High and Wilson Pickett's Midnight Hour are superfluous at best, while Rain Rain Rain stinks stinks stinks. The remainder of Flesh and Blood gracefully advances the maturation of Roxy's experimental glam rock into stylish, New-Romantic pop. Roxy were beginning to sound more like their imitators (Ultravox, Japan, Associates) by this time, but beneath the veneer of tousled, continental elegance lay that same aura of mystery, estrangement, and decay that characterized their pivotal earlier recordings. Avalon, the band's eighth and final studio album, may have been a more graceful, cohesive affair, but this often overlooked record has a higher concentration of truly great songs.

Format: Audio CD
This is a good but not great album, though the best tunes (Same Old Scene, F&B) very much preface the sound and vibe of Avalon. Funky rhythms, amazing production, sweet guitar sounds, and lots of excellent tunes from Ferry's pen are here as usual, but also a few clunkers, unlike the flawless Avalon. Still...Oh Yeah, Rain Rain Rain, My Only Love and the crisp Byrds cover Eight Miles High are all very musical and still sound good thirty years later.

The original Eno Roxy feel is long gone by this point; F&B heralds the arrival of Ferry as a real popsmith without the early weirdness (no one will ever touch Virginia Plain for what it is, though). Yes, the early Roxy sound was superb and unique, but so is this at moments, and it's the clear halfway point between early Roxy, where Ferry played the lounge lizard with full irony, and his later solo career, where he became the best real lizard of all. Dance Away from Manifesto started the transition, this got halfway there, and Avalon completed the weird triumphal march/schmooze into Ferry's very own weird Valhalla of smooooth pop/rock that actually works on every level.
