Notes

Stranded is the third from eight studio album by English rock band Roxy Music, released in late 1973. It reached number one on the UK album charts. The cover shows Bryan Ferry's then girlfriend and 1973 Playmate of the Year, Marilyn Cole. It was the first Roxy Music album on which Ferry was not the sole songwriter as multi-instrumentalist Andy Mackay and guitarist Phil Manzanera also contributed to the album. Though it was also the first without Brian Eno, who had left the group after For Your Pleasure, Eno nonetheless later rated it as Roxy Music's finest record. Despite this praise, the album only reached number 186 in the Top Pop Albums charts in the US. The track "Street Life" was released as a single and reached number 9 on the UK charts.

The gatefold cover photograph was taken by Karl Stoecker and styled by Antony Price.

Performed by:
Bryan Ferry - Voice and Piano
John Gustafson - Bass
Eddie Jobson - Violin Synthesizer and Keyboards
Andy Mackay - Oboe and Saxophone (& Treatments)
Phil Manzanera - Guitar (& Treatments)
Paul Thompson (2) - Drums

      Another amazing sounding Roxy LP, this time the sound is widescreen super-lush CinemaScope. Sort of spooky sounding, recessed & booming, but in a good way. Sounds great played LOUD

          Difference between this and the other HDCD U.S. Virgin issue?

            Bit of a quality control issue with my copy. There’s a scuff on the lead in and a scratch across the first 2 tracks. Fortunately it’s only really audible for a couple of seconds at the start so I didn’t return it. It was also really dirty, like it had been left out whilst someone had a cigarette break over it! That was fine after a wet clean but it would have taken some work if I didn’t have that facility. Great sounding record though, like all the other recent half speed remasters.

                I don't have an original 1st pressing to compare to, but I do have the box set released some years back. This pressing blows that one away, and the vinyl quality is far superior in every way. The pressing is clean, flat, and centered. The music sounds excellent. I'm interested in the difference in dynamic range between this and the original release as this one sounds a touch compressed, but far from brick walled. Overall this release is a win.

                  Had to compare this to my original UK 1st pressing.
                  I did some high resolution recordings of both so I could switch quickly between the two.
                  This new 1/2 speed is wonderful and true to the original.
                  No loss in dynamics and overall sounds cleaner, giving more insight into the recording, so is it actually better?
                  Like GoldSphincter has said the artwork isn't on par.
                  Certainly not side by side with my original.
                  Overall an impressive sounding re-issue and certainly for those not wanting to invest heavily in an original pressing.

                    I took a bit of a risk buying the first four Roxy albums (half speed masters) in one go, I have not yet heard the first two as they haven’t arrived. My initial impression of Stranded is that they have done great job on it, some of the tracks like Street Life are total sonic overload, but it sounded great and I didn’t feel any need to turn the volume down. The bass on Amazona comes across beautifully. There is great separation, the kissing effects on Mother of Pearl were so wide that it made turn around to see if anyone was there. And the vinyl is flat and dead quiet throughout. I have to say that I’m very impressed. The only downer is that the cover of this and Country Life look a bit too ‘soft’ and sleeves are little on the thin side. There was no Abbey Rd cert. The printed inners are supplied without the records inserted which is good, they come in their own black poly-lined sleeves. Signed ‘Miles Abbey Road Rm30’ in the run-out.

                      If you can find a VG+ or NM copy at a reasonable price, this reissue is worth it. Quiet and well pressed.

                        Quite a nice pressing - dead quiet, nice separation. Can’t compare it to the UK first but sounds great to my ears.
