Notes:
The album was dedicated to Susie, a drummer who auditioned for Roxy Music in the early days. The cover features model Kari-Ann Muller, one of the rare Roxy models who didn't date Bryan Ferry. She later married Mick Jagger's brother Chris and appeared in the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

The album has been released in different packages over the years. The album's original cover, as issued in 1972 by Island Records, featured a gatefold sleeve picturing the band in stage attire and did not include "Virginia Plain." The album's original U.S. release, in late 1972 on Warner Bros. Records' Reprise subsidiary, included "Virginia Plain," which had been issued as a single in the UK prior to the album's U.S. release. The original U.S. release also featured a gatefold sleeve, but replaced Simpson's photo with that of Rik Kenton, who played bass on "Virginia Plain" following Simpson's departure from the group.

U.S. distribution of Roxy Music was transferred from Reprise to their affiliated company Atco Records in 1976, and back to Reprise in the mid-1980s. LP editions of the album pressed in these time frames were without the gatefold sleeve and band photographs, instead providing liner notes on the rear album cover.

In most later repressings of the album, including CD versions, the song "Virginia Plain" has been included.

My version of this CD (i think this one, but could be any with the Cat EGCD 6) is missing Virginia Plain off of the actual disc. Weird.

I was looking forward to this great classic to be released on SACD. The most disappointing thing about this release is that they left "Virginia Plain" off of this disc for some reason. I had to listen to this twice to realize that one of my favorite tracks was left off this important SACD release. I received this from a dealer and a very good friend who lives in Japan about two weeks ago. He's been there for almost ten years and loves it. I buy most all of my SACDs and SHM High Resolution disc from him as he runs a shop outside of Tokyo. It's a "walk in only" store and I keep telling him to set up a website or sell here, but he claims he dosent have time. Myself and a few people here and in the UK are the only people he claims to have time to ship to. I met him and our other friends in the UK from my short lived experience in school abroad that lasted almost two years. This didn't make the parents happy, but I meet a lot of interesting friends and keep in contact with at least ten. I've contacted two others that are also self proclaimed audiophiles and they both fee like the same way about the omission of one of the best songs on this disc. If there are two versions of this, he's in trouble big time. But I think it was omitted on purpose.

He had warned me that he did not think I was going to like one aspect of this release. He's a prankster and wouldn't tell me why, but emailed me to see if it had arrived. It had two days prior and after listening to this disc I realized what he ment by me being disappointed. He too was disappointed that this song was left off the disc as well. I keep telling him to start selling Vinyl, but he deals mostly in CDs and Movies and is making a lot of money doing so. He's also a DSD fanatic and says vinyl takes up too much space. I love my vinyl and my High Resolution disc as well.

We both agreed that there are at least two other selections we could have lived without on this release. I can't believe that this was the track left off to make room ( my guess ) on the disc for the rest of the songs. I'll be courious to see if the other releases are similiar to this one. He has been back in London for a few days, but when he gets back to Japan on the 12th, I plan on him letting me know which, if any, of the other classic songs are left off the other SACDs before he talks me into buying them. At least we all agreed on the fact that they kept this disc in the mini LP sleeve format. Most all of the current SACDs are moving back into the crappy jewel box again. I hate jewel boxes as they always end up getting cracked or the hinge gets broken.

I have the whole set of Promo HDCDs including the Disc Union box from the 2007 release of these albums that he sent me after I visited him in Tokyo in 2008. I have treasured it for many years for the sound quality and the fact it was a gift from a very special friend. It made me appreciate the CD again and I had to buy a High Resolution disc player as well. I most likely will not buy all of the new SACDs as I have a short list of live disc I really like. I'm not real crazy about Manifesto anyway,so that one is already out. If there are songs I really like left off the other SACD versions of these, I will be so disappointed and will not buy them. Why this song?

Interesting album, great début, quite bizarre. The first side is the strongest, the second side is OK but quite forgetful.

Note - this original US pressing on Reprise does seem to include Virginia Plain between listed A3 and A4, as the later Atco reissue did.
