Roxy Music: Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Ca.

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, April 1975

ROXY MUSIC'S sellout Santa Monica appearance was a carefully executed triumph. They seemed minded to consolidate their newly-won American audience, and played it conservative all the way. No gauche South American cowboy outfits for Bryan Ferry, but instead the black tuxedo ensemble that was the Ferry trademark of quality at the beginning.

Total word count of piece: 316
