* ContemptibleCover: All of them, except Avalon. Special mention goes to ''Country Life'', which features two German female fans of the band in semi-transparent lingerie standing in a forest. Doubles as a sort of HeyItsThatGuy since one of the girls on the cover is [[Music/{{Can}} Michael Karoli]]'s sister Constanze.

Roxy Music reformed in 2001, sans Eno, and have been touring regularly since. They also recorded material for a new album with Eno, but these sessions were reworked into Ferry's 2010 solo album, ''Olympia''.

* Bowdlerization: The first U.S. pressing of ''Country Life'' was packaged in black shrink wrap to cover up the two topless women on the cover. It did inspire Creator/{{Hipgnosis}} to package Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/WishYouWereHere'' in the same way a year later. The cover was eventually changed to a forest.

* NobodyLovesTheBassist: Note that the bass guitarist is not pictured above.

* NobodyLovesTheBassist: Note that the bass guitarist is not pictured above. In this case it's because Bryan Ferry's friend Graham Simpson quit the band around the time they signed to a label, and bass pretty much became a revolving door from then on.
