Roxy Music 1974

After recording 1973’s For Your Pleasure as part of Roxy Music, Brian Eno left the band amidst an ongoing struggle with Brian Ferry’s ego. That is quite a big pair of musical shoes to fill, and so fans were taken aback when it was he was replaced by a 19-year-old Eddie Jobson. Jobson was also keyboards player, but had electric violin in his repertoire too. ‘Out Of The Blue’ featured on the the band’s 1974 album Country Life. The song begins with a sound that would greatly influence the likes of Duran Duran. It ends with something far more consistent with 1974 – a prog rock violin solo.
