C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Roxy Music

Roxy Music was glam rock, but always had a progressive element to it, which probably had something to do with the many lineups of creative individuals that it has seen.

Roxy Music was glam rock, but always had a progressive element to it, which probably had something to do with the many lineups of creative individuals that it has seen. Fronted by Bryan Ferry, Roxy Music has been his main project throughout his career, and has been joined by great musical talents like Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera. To this day, they still put on a great live show, although they no longer put out studio albums. As far as "Out of the Blue" goes, I definitely go for the live version. The studio version has a great arrangement and is higher fidelity than the Viva! version, but I feel that the live version more than makes up for its shortcomings in production with its energy. It's just a great performance, which isn't something that can always be captured as well in the studio.

Which songs do you prefer live?
