ROXY MUSIC Live At The Musikladen Studios Wienerworld (2007)
When dinosaurs ruled the earth...

Roxy Music

You have to laugh. The advance copy of this DVD is the German issue which comes branded as 'Ard Video'. For a brief moment, I thought I'd been sent some German hard core XXXX to review. Unfortunately, not.

But it is, in fact a great little DVD catching the classic Roxy line-up at their peak and before Eno took the hump. Recorded live, in front of a studio audience at the legendary Muslikladen Studios in 1974-75, call it what you like - artrock, progrock, it's just damn fine and a reminder of why the group were so iconic, before all went a bit, well - Bryan Ferry.

All the classics are here - Virginia Plain, Do The Strand, Edition Of You, Street Life, Pyjamarama, All I Want Is You and more. Ferry hams it up in his white suit, while the rest of the band glam it up. But it's a great reminder, that despite their singles success, Roxy were a great rock band. And where they stretch their wings you get some great playing from Eddie Jobson, Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera.

You also get a couple of mimed promo 'videos' for Over You and Oh Yeah.

And that's what nice about this archive material, it's not overproduced and, OK it may be a bit dated, but it takes you back nicely to the 1970's, to a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth and rock was, well, classic. Now what could be better than that?

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
