Flesh + Blood is the seventh studio album by Roxy Music and was released in June 1980. The album reached #1 in the UK for one week in June and then returned to the summit in August for another three weeks, in total spending 60 weeks on the UK album chart. The album reached #35 in the US and #10 in Australia.
The album was preceded by the single "Over You", a #5 UK hit that also provided the band with a rare US chart entry at #80. Two more hit singles followed: "Oh Yeah" (UK #5) and "Same Old Scene" (UK #12, AUS #35). Flesh + Blood also included two cover versions: The Byrds' "Eight Miles High" and Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour". The latter was released as a single in some territories. In addition, the album's title track along with the aforementioned "Over You" and "Eight Miles High" peaked at number forty-six on the Billboard dance charts.
The album was made after drummer Paul Thompson had left the band, essentially making Roxy Music a three-piece consisting of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera.
All songs written by Bryan Ferry except as noted.
