With a running time at over 90 minutes, this DVD is fully endorsed and authorized by all members of Roxy Music, with unique footage of the band in the studio with Brian Eno for the first time since 1973.
More Than This – The Story Of… recounts the story of Roxy Music through new interviews with band members Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay, Paul Thompson, Brian Eno and Eddie Jobson plus many of their contemporaries.
Originally broadcast by the BBC in late 2008, the DVD contains nearly half an hour of additional unseen material plus three previously unreleased live tracks from Dock Rock (filmed in London in July 2006): “Both Ends Burning,” “Editions Of You,” and “Do The Strand.”
Roxy Music’s unique blend of avant-garde rock music and high style set the tone for the whole glam rock era. They were much imitated but never equaled. The DVD captures their essence and progression as artists. Every step of their journey is touched upon, from their early years and the classic seventies albums to their re-emergence with a much smoother style in the early eighties, the band’s break up and then their hugely successful reunion in the 21st century.
