Editorial Reviews

Limited three disc (two CDs + PAL/Region 0 DVD) edition of this career-spanning anthology from the Roxy Music guitarist including a bonus DVD. The Music: 1972-08 is the ultimate collection from one of the UK's premier guitarists and includes solo tracks alongside cuts from Roxy Music, 801, and others. Disc One covers the first 20 years with Manzanera providing the musical context for the words of other cowriters, such as Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno, as well as writing varied instrumental music. Whilst the most recent 10 years are on Disc Two with Manzanera writing and singing his own lyrics, including 10 minutes of weirdness created by Eno's 'treatments' of music by former Roxy colleagues, Manzanera, Mackay and Thompson. The bonus DVD contains 'From Revolution to Roxy', a riveting musical journey, with Manzanera acting as guide, live performances and music videos. Expression Records. * Please note you will need a Multi-Region and/or a dual PAL/NTSC DVD player to view.

This is probably the Manzanera collection to get if you either don't have his other recordings (solo and with Roxy Music), or want to listen to something of an abbreviated best-of all in one place. All the songs here (presented as originally recorded) were chosen by him for this collection and were either written by him alone or in collaboration with others, covering the period from '72 to '05 (his excellent instrumental release from '08 Firebird VII is not represented).

Disc 1 covers his first decade (from Roxy Music, Eno, 801, to solo recordings - with just two tracks from Diamond Head and two from the instrumental '82 release Primitive Guitars, but nothing from Mainstream, Listen Now or K-Scope), while disc 2 is a generous selection from his trilogy of mid '00 albums. (It's interesting that the middle decades from the early 80's to the early 00's are unrepresented here, but they were a more uneven time for Phil, and are well covered on his earlier 2 disc collection Phil Manzanera Collection) While I would have probably chosen a different 'best-of' mix to fill 2 discs, the music here is great, the sound quality and packaging very nice (the liner notes are less elaborate than on his recent "collector edition" reissues, but do list his complete discography and production credits), but....
