(The inimitable Bryan Ferry)

To the Hammersmith Odeon in London tonight for a performance by Roxy Music from May 1979. Several months ago I posted a Roxy Music concert from 1974, during their earlier period. By 1979 the band had undergone some personnel changes (i.e. Brian Eno left to launch his solo career), but still maintained their huge popularity. If anything, the band smoothed out some of the rough edges of their earlier period and were more polished and self-assured by this stage in their careers. They were still a few years off from their milestone Avalon period. But Roxy Music were always (and still are at last report) a great band to see live, as is evidenced by this gig.

Play loud - play often. Support BBC6 Music.
