In Search of Eddie Riff

Andy Mackay

Island Records

A lot of UK glam rock was a celebration, however skew-whiff, of the early rock and roll that had inspired its creators. Roxy Music had plenty of that early on, and so little surprise that Andy Mackay’s solo debut was essentially a celebration of just that, along with his classical training in turn. Mackay, accompanied by Roxy compatriots like Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson among other players, does engaging sax and oboe-led covers of everyone from Skeeter Davis to the Beatles to Richard Wagner, plus a number of game originals in generally similar veins.
