Roxy Delight

In the later stages of 2006, Roxy Music released a bunch of new remixes of some of their old songs. Some of these remixes found their way onto the Remix #01 and Remix #01 12-inches. Some of the songs included Booka Shade & M.A.N.D.Y's take on "The Thrill Of It All", Tiefschwarz's edit of "Rain Rain Rain", and The Glimmer's remix of "Same Old Scene". One song that didn't make it onto those releases, however might see the light of day somewhere else (Hopefully), is Lindstrom & Prins Thomas's edit of Roxy Music's "Avalon". This downtempo edit really captures some nice atmospheric elements of the orginal, including a smooth jazz track through-out the song. Not being the biggest Roxy Music fan, I have to really give the two Oslo producers their due for taking an orginal version of a song and really making it their own. Let's hope that we see it on vinyl sometime here in '07.
