‘PHIL MANZANERA – The Music 1972 – 2008’
A double album of a life in music and a DVD including the new documentary ‘From Revolution to Roxy’

Phil Manzanera, one of the UK’s most creative and highly regarded musicians, releases ‘Phil Manzanera – The Music 1972-2008’ on 10 November on his own label, Expression Records.

The release includes a double album of 25 tracks, either written or co-written by Manzanera, spanning an amazing career that includes his work with seminal band Roxy Music, 801 Live, Brian Eno and solo albums, such as ‘Diamond Head’ and ‘6PM

The DVD includes ‘From Revolution to Roxy’, a riveting musical journey, ,with Manzanera acting as guide, plus live performances and music videos. Fans will be delighted by the inclusion of previously unseen Roxy Music footage, Eno filming himself and family super 8 footage shot in Cuba at the time of the Revolution.

Phil Manzanera:
“ When choosing the songs and music from a body of work that, so far, has spanned 35 years, I did wonder if some common thread would emerge, and I guess it did…namely my passion for experimentation and musical exploration through sound and collaborations. I have never wanted to play it safe, even if it means, as the great music writer Ian MacDonald said of me, ‘soaring like an angel one minute and stumbling like a sleepwalker the next’.

Disc one covers the first twenty years with Manzanera providing the musical context for the words of other co-writers, such as Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno, as well as writing varied instrumental music. The most recent 10 years are on Disc 2 with Manzanera writing and singing his own lyrics, including 10 minutes of weirdness created by Eno’s ‘treatments’ of music by former Roxy colleagues, Manzanera, Mackay and Thompson.
