2015 Japanese SHM-SACD paper sleeve pressing. Out of print.
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 path for a saunter into the UK top five by the ravishingly stylish first single "Virginia Plain". Before the year ended, Roxy had completed their opening tours of both the UK and US. for once, fans in the industry and in the real world were unanimous: here was a triumph of style AND substance.
This is NOT a hybrid SACD.
Reissue features the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format - fully compatible with standard all SACD players, but it does not play on standard CD players.
