* RecursiveImport: The first album "Roxy Music" was released a few months late in the US, which enabled them to add the then newly recorded non-album single "Virginia Plain" to the album. For CD releases, this tracklisting was made standard worldwide; with the only exception being The Complete Studio Recordings where it appears on the Singles And B-Sides Disc.

* Retraux: Bryan Ferry dressed like a 1940s film star and was fond of crooning pre-60s songs using more lush modern equipment. His most blatant example of this trope was his "Extended Play" EP, designed to look like a late 50s or early 60s 4 track 7" EP, complete with liner notes, despite one of the tracks being a Gallagher And Lyle song released the previous year. This doubles as SeinfeldIsUnfunny, as though it would regain popularity in the punk era, the EP format was pretty much dead at the time.

* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: "Trash", Roxy's attempt at capturing a punk/new wave audience, and Ferry's solo version of "Shame Shame Shame" a few years before.

* CanonImmigrant: Bryan Ferry's "Let's Stick Together" compilation was created for the US market, as the label demanded an album off the back of his "Let's Stick Together" single and declined to release his "The Price Of Love" EP. He combined the two releases with UK B-Side recordings of Roxy Music tracks and a then unreleased version of "Casanova", in order to create an 11 track album. Whilst initially intended as a US only release, "Let's Stick Together" became hugely popular on import to the point where Island released it in the UK, and it has featured in all the reissue series since.

He combined the two releases with the previous year's "You Go To My Head" single, some UK B-Side recordings of Roxy Music tracks and a then unreleased version of "Casanova", in order to create an 11 track album. Whilst initially intended as a US only release, "Let's Stick Together" became hugely popular on import to the point where Island released it in the UK, and it has featured in all the reissue series since. Part of the reason is that it was the first Ferry release after Roxy Music announced their split.

Roxy Music reformed in 2001, sans Eno, and toured steadily until 2011. They also recorded material for a new album with Eno, but these sessions were reworked into Ferry's 2010 solo album, ''Olympia''. After their 40th anniversary shows in 2011 they went on hiatus and Manzanera has stated that they are unlikely to perform together again.
