ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roxy Music released its next astounding offering on June 26, 2001, the astonishing “Concerto.” This CD is the second album to hit store shelves featuring the band on tour in 1979 performing the music of “Manifesto” (one of our favorite albums, by the way) along with cuts from other albums. While some bitch and moan about the reformed band and its three ensuing albums—“Manifesto,” “Flesh & Blood,” and “Avalon,”–we happen to love all three of the albums and are overjoyed anytime the group releases live recordings from this era. We hope you will check out this double-CD offering because every tune is a joyous revel in the sound that ONLY this band had and will forever be known for so please—use the link we provide you here so you can go to Amazon.com. Once there, pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that rocks your socks—you will be extremely glad you did, no doubt about it whatsoever.
