    Off the bat, it is a great collection of their videos but...where are the videos to AVALON and More than This?
    I do recommend it highly for those who dig their music.

    I saw this in stores last weekend...didn't realize Roxy Music had that many music videos.

    How is the sound quality though? Duped from old fuzzy U-matic video masters, or has the sound been brought up to nearly-state-of-the-art* like their CDs?



    *only "nearly," since the 5.1 mixes aren't out yet on CD

    If you like the video collection, you should definitely check out this:

    It, too, is unfortunately light on the Avalon period, but is a fantastic concert nonetheless. You can probably save a little bit too, by ordering from Amazon.CA. Mine came in less than a week for under $19 U.S.

    The sound is pretty good, particularly in 5.1. The picture, however, looks like a spruced-up videotape, something that is all too common with these video compilations.

    I agree that the absense of the "Avalon" and "More Than This" videos are troubling. I'm hoping that they put out the "Roxy Music: Total Recall" video compilation on DVD.

    They Should Release Mid Eighties Live Concert "The High Road".

    I have seen the High Road VHS at my local mom and pop store, but I have been hesitant in renting it. Is it pretty good?
