My vote for the most important archival music DVD release of the year streets at the end of this month in England. ROXY MUSIC: THE THRILL OF IT ALL promises to be an absolutely mind blowing double disc set featuring tons of rare television footage, and live work from their monumentally important career.
No word as of yet, that I can find anyway, on a US release but it appears that the discs will be all region so there hopefully won't be too many compatibility issues. To read the full press release, please click on the link above. While there, you can also vote to have Bryan Ferry knighted (I'd personally rather see him and his extraordinary group put into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame) and read a new interview with Phil Manzanera that mentions Brian Eno was indeed involved on all of the tracks for the upcoming Roxy Music release, their first studio album since
1982's AVALON. He also mentions that Roxy have been contracted to deliver not one, but three new studio albums.
Roxy Music are my all time favorite band, and I can't wait to get my hands on this collection.
