Roxy Music''s "Avalon"

Could this be the sexiest album ever recorded by white artists?

What a great band. "Take a chance with me" is so gorgeous. "To turn you on" is such a sexy song.

Best cd to listen to on a MDMA trip ever.

Ha! I can go one better- saw the Avalon tour live concert on MDA.

No, OP. That album would be Boys and Girls by Bryan Ferry.

Elegant,sexy & sophisticated...Roxy Music

There's no one to touch Bryan in his heyday. The coolest of the cool, louche and sexy as hell. Avalon is superb. Another all-time favourite is Slave to Love.

It's a beautiful, glamourous album. Also love their cover of "Like a Hurricane" from around the same time.

Aaaaah, Bryan Ferry. Best crooner ever.

The ultimate Bryan Ferry persona....

Avalon's great, but their 70s stuff is 100 times better.

It's the whitest album ever made, dunno about sexy.

I like Grace Jones cover of "Love is the Drug" better than Roxy's. And Ferry cruised me one summer afternoon on Restaurant Row, I'm a guy.

Brian Ferry-Which Way To Turn

Roxy Music - 40 years later, still ahead of their time. Only Modern Lovers and NY Dolls can make a similar claim. The first 2 Roxy albums would still blow away anything made in the last 5 years.

The Roxy Music song "The Thrill Of It All" and the Doris Day movie of the same title were plot points in a 1988 novel I loved, "Boy Wonder" by James Robert Baker.

I lost my copy two decades ago and have never found another, since it's been long out of print. This thread inspired me to check Amazon for any available offers: someone ("The Daily Deal") is selling a new copy for *$430.64*. This must be an example of the sort of money laundering described in the convenience store thread.

Avalon the song seems to be quite influential and created the brief 80s mini genre "sophisto-pop". After that you had a lot of jazzy pop singles that the yuppies of the 80s had as background music to cocktail parties. None were really as good as "Avalon" though.

Aren't familiar with the album, but I didn't expect much and bother as it came in their dying days, long past their cool avant garde early 70s era. Must check it.
