I first picked up on the brilliance of Roxy Music on a school trip to France in 1989. Once I heard Virginia Plain, Pyjamarama, and Street Life I was hooked. Their first five records are very close to my heart and it’s only recently that I paid attention to their final three, Manifesto, Flesh and Blood, and Avalon. Avalon gets the plaudits but Manifesto is far more rewarding. Here’s a great live performance of Still Falls the Rain, the strongest song on the album.
