ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On August 15, 2006, Roxy Music released a great live album—“Ladytron”–recorded around the time the band released their “Manifesto” album and went on tour to promote it. “Manifesto” marked a return for the band who had taken a brief hiatus of sorts and the songs on the album were among their best. To hear them knock them out live is a joy as is the fact that there are some old favorites on the album, too. We hope that you will go to Amazon.com where you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you—you will love this spectacular live set.
