‘Stranded’, the third long playing outing from Roxy Music, not only gave the band their first No. 1 album in the UK but was also the first to come to the wider attention of US audiences. An incredibly accomplished and consistent collection of songs, ‘Stranded’ thrills from start to finish – from the definitive album opener (and hit single) ‘Street Life’ to the affecting ballad ‘Just like You’, the smouldering ‘Song For Europe’ and the epic (and one of the all-time great Bryan Ferry compositions) ‘Mother Of Pearl’. From its Antony Price-styled sleeve in, “Stranded’ is nothing short of a musical hothouse, brim-full of colour, drama and exotica.
