Continuing with the Roxy Music discussion, here's a reply to Bill Sherman, and by proxy Sean Collins:
Stranded is my favorite RM album, too, and not coincidentally it's the first Roxy album I heard. I ran out and picked up Roxy Music (on Reprise, with "Virginia Plain", gloat gloat) and For Your Pleasure, also on WB and probably my 2nd fave, before the end of the year. Even though Eno didn't participate on Stranded, I think tracks like "Street Life", "Serenade", "Mother of Pearl" and "A Song For Europe" are some of the best things to ever issue from the RM collective. I wish you would review that one, Bill, I'd like to read it.
