Roxy Music have announced that they will reissue The Best Of Roxy Music through Virgin/UMC on September 2. It will be the first time the career-spanning Roxy Music collection has been made available on vinyl.

Roxy Music announced in March that Bryan FerryAndy MackayPhil Manzanera and Paul Thompson will reunite for the first time since their sold-out and critically acclaimed 2011 For Your Pleasure tour, will perform ten arena shows across the US and Canada, before hitting UK shores in October.

2022 is a landmark year for the band, celebrating both the 50th anniversary of their ground-breaking self-titled debut album, and 40 years since their eighth and final studio record, Avalon, reached No. 1 in the UK album charts on its release in 1982.

Each of the band's eight studio albums will be reissued as special anniversary vinyl editions with a new half-speed cut, revised artwork and a deluxe gloss laminated finish. Roxy Music, For Your Pleasure, Stranded and Country Life are all out now, with the remaining albums will arrive in paired drops throughout the year.
