Eno himself later acknowledged the quality of the two albums that followed his departure [ citation needed ] , Stranded and Country Life Rolling Stone referred to the albums as marking "the zenith of contemporary British art rock".
The songs on these albums also cemented Ferry's persona as the epitome of the suave, jaded Euro-sophisticate. Although this persona undoubtedly began as a deliberately ironic device, during the mids it seemed to merge with Ferry's real life, as the working-class miner's son from the north of England became an international rock star and an icon of male style.
On the first two Roxy albums, all songs were written solely by Bryan Ferry. Beginning with Stranded , Mackay and Manzanera began to co-write some material. Gradually, their songwriting and musicianship became more integrated into the band's sound, although Ferry remained the dominant songwriter; throughout their career, all but one of Roxy's singles were written either wholly or jointly by Ferry Manzanera, Mackay and Thompson did individually write a few of the band's B-sides.
Stranded was released in November , and produced the top single " Street Life ". Country Life was met with widespread critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone referring to it "as if Ferry ran a cabaret for psychotics, featuring chanteurs in a state of shock".
Ferry said the song came to him while kicking the leaves during a walk through Hyde Park. After the concert tours in support of Siren in , Roxy Music disbanded.
Their live album Viva! During this time Ferry released two solo records on which Manzanera and Thompson performed, and Manzanera reunited with Eno on the critically acclaimed one-off Live album.
Roxy Music reunited during to record a new album, Manifesto , but with a reshuffled cast. Jobson was not present, and was reportedly not contacted for the reunion.
At that time, Jobson was touring and recording with his own band, U. The sleeve of Manifesto indicated that the revived Roxy Music line-up consisted of Ferry, Manzanera, Mackay, and Thompson, along with Paul Carrack keyboards , Alan Spenner bass , and Gary Tibbs bass ; despite this all other media pointed to Roxy Music being a quartet and a trio following the departure of Thompson , with the latter three musicians being regular collaborators of the band.
Both these tracks are significantly different from the album versions, as "Dance Away" was remixed for single release, and "Angel Eyes" was entirely re-recorded. Soon afterward he left permanently, due to musical differences with Ferry. At this point, Ferry, Mackay and Manzanera became the only permanent members of Roxy Music, and were supplemented by a variety of session players over the next few years including Tibbs, Spenner, Carrack, Andy Newmark and Neil Hubbard.
However, the changed cast reflected a distinct change in Roxy's musical style. Gone were the unpredictable elements of the group's sound, giving way to smoother musical arrangements. Rolling Stone panned Manifesto "Roxy Music has not gone disco. Melody Maker said, of Manifesto, " In , Roxy Music recorded the non-album single " Jealous Guy ".
A cover of a song written and originally recorded by John Lennon , Roxy Music recorded "Jealous Guy" as a tribute to Lennon after his death. The song topped the UK charts for two weeks in March , becoming the band's only No. Later, with more sombre and carefully sculpted soundscapes, the band's eighth—and final—studio album, Avalon , recorded at Chris Blackwell 's Compass Point Studios , was a major commercial success and restored the group's critical reputation  and contained the successful single " More Than This ".
The trio augmented by session players toured extensively until , when Bryan Ferry dissolved the band and band members devoted themselves full-time to solo careers. Ferry, Manzanera, Mackay, and Thompson re-formed in to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band and toured extensively.
A festival performance in Portugal and a short tour of the United States followed in Absent was Brian Eno, who criticised the motives of the band's reunion, saying, "I just don't like the idea. It leaves a bad taste". Manzanera and Thompson recorded and toured with Ferry on his album Frantic. Eno also contributed to Frantic on the track "I Thought". However, my consultant has told me that the little finger of my left hand, which is quite badly affected, cannot be operated on again at this time.
For those who are not woodwind players, the little fingers of both hands do rather a lot of work playing all the lowest notes on the instrument - low B flat, B, C and E flat, as well as the little finger of the left hand playing G sharp.
