I posted this on the Hot Pressings thread but I want to give it a dedicated shout out.

the high road is a 4-song Live EP recorded at the Apollo in Glasgow, Scotland on August 30, 1982.

1. Can't Let Go
2. My One and Only Love
3. Like A Hurricane
4. Jealous Guy

This may be one of the best domestic pressings I own of any genre. It just blows my mind.

Find a copy if you don't already have one.......you'll thank me! :)

You should get a copy of this, as it is very good (assuming it's available as an LP, and I'm not train-wrecking the thread):

I saw and heard quite a few bands at the old Apollo in Glasgow.

Thanks, John. I'm a big Roxy Music fan....but don't own too much of their stuff. I'll look for this one.

It's all old time jazz (like you hear in Woody Allen movies) versions of their songs. I was in a bookstore when I heard some old jazz, and I recognized the tune, which I thought was odd, seeing as I didn't know much old jazz. It was "Love Is The Drug."
