Roxy Music – the debut album – 45th anniversary four-disc deluxe box set will be released on 2nd February 2018, featuring previously unreleased demos, outtakes, radio sessions, rare footage, 136-page book, and the whole album remixed in 5.1 surround sound by Steven Wilson. Also available as a deluxe 2CD set with 24-page booklet, extended digital.
Included are the John Peel BBC Sessions which saw the group honing their craft as they prepared to record their debut album. The second CD in the set captures something very special with unheard glimpses into Roxy’s working methods in the studio. Alternate session versions are offered for every album track, plus their first single, Virginia Plain.
The original album is presented in the 1999 Bob Ludwig master, while the remainder of the audio has been mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road.
