The gems within this deluxe edition are the first recordings Roxy made. These tracks were recorded in a flat in London before Paul Thompson & Phil Manzanera had joined the band. Dexter Lloyd played drums with Roger Bunn on guitar. Read Richard Williams 1971 review of the tape here

The studio out-takes give an amazing insight to how the album was developed and recorded with some great alternative takes of each song on the album.

The BBC sessions get their first official release and the gem on the DVD is footage from the Bataclan Paris, the only known footage from a show on the first Roxy Music tour.
