(Phil Manzanera w/Andy McKay - Roxy Music and the splendid quirkiness)
Roxy Music were always one of those bands I loved no matter what they did or which direction they took. Because of that, they have maintained a pretty constant popularity for the better part of 35 years.
In the mid 1970's the various members of the band did side projects of solo albums. Some with great success and others not so memorable.
One of the more memorable solo albums was by Phil Manzanera, lead guitarist of Roxy Music and carried their indelible stamp on every cut.
This track, Miss Shapiro, opens the first side wonderfully well and sets the scene for the rest of the album which, if you've heard it, is memorable.
