I don't think that anything I didn't like on the first few listens has wormed its way into my good graces, but there are songs I was indifferent to that have become cherished old friends.

For the list from each album, I shall chose a few a of these:

Would You Believe?
Grey Lagoons
Psalm
If It Takes All Night
Sentimental Fool
Still Falls the Rain
No Strange Delight
While My Heart Is Still Beating

However, my list of songs I love unconditionally:

If There Is Something
For Your Pleasure
Mother of Pearl
Prairie Rose
End of the Line
Spin Me Round
Running Wild
Take a Chance with Me

Good to see some praise on here for No Strange Delight and Running Wild. The F+B album seems to generate little affection amongst the Roxy faithful, with some justification, but these two little gems deserve to have had far more live airings than they have over the years. In the case of No Strange Delight a live performance in any shape or form in the past 36 years would have been welcome!

Running Wild is a great track, one of Andy's most evocative solos.

Seriously? I love the Jazz Age, Do The Strand is a brilliant reworking; celebratory, joyous and fun. Same for Slave to Love, when I hear those 2 tracks I smile, they lift my spirits.

And, bearing in mind the original ethos of the Jazz Age - fun, hedonism, freedom, sexy dancing outfits, etc., I love the fact Bryan put that imprint on his songs, which defined the "new" aspirational lifestyle we craved with Roxy in the early 70s.
