In 1975, Roxy Music played one of their iconic bass lines for the first time. Bryan Ferry first worked out everything by himself (text, music and title), but in Roxy Music, he started working together on the songs. He worked a long time on the lyrics, and in one live take, he recorded it all. The album cover of the album Siren meant also the start of a relationship between Bryan Ferry and model Jerry Hall, who couldn’t get the paint of her body… The song made a number 30 hit in the US and number 2 in the UK (kept from number 1 by David Bowie with a re-release of Space Oddity).

Song of the day: UK- Rendezvous 6:02

A superband from the seventies today! Not because they had lots of members, but because they all were famous from other bands. The band was formed by John Wetton and Bill Bruford (both from King Crimson). Bruford has also played a short time in Yes and as extra drummer by Genesis. Eddie Jobson was another member, he was known from Roxy Music. After the first album, Bruford quit the band. He was replaced by Terry Bozzio, who was a friend of Jobson when he played by Frank Zappa. Those three made the album Danger Money, of which the song of the day probably is the best known, though it never was a hit. Enjoy
