Flesh and Blood

Flesh and Blood

Originally released in 1980

Sixty weeks in the UK albums chart, seventeen weeks in the Top 10, four weeks at No. 1, three UK Top 20 singles… for Roxy Music 1980’s ‘Flesh And Blood’ represented their commercial peak to date. Always evolving, Ferry, Mackay and Manzanera and producer Rhett Davis alchemised an entirely complete and new atmosphere, moving on from ‘Manifesto’s angular, more frenetic moments in favour of a kind of bejewelled fusion of soul and future-facing classic pop. All three of the hit singles – ‘Over You’, ‘Oh Yeah (On The Radio)’ and ‘Same Old Scene’ – represent high water marks in the Roxy canon while the album’s takes on Wilson Pickett’s ‘In The Midnight Hour’ and The Byrds’ ‘Eight Miles High’ utterly transform them into something new, one could say into “Roxy” music.
