The rock-lore behind the two scantily dressed women on the cover of Country Life by Roxy Music is that Brian Ferry met the two beauties at a bar and proposed the idea of an impromptu photo session - which they accepted*! Whatever the real story might be, the photo certainly hit the nail on the head. We take a cut from this 1974 classic and add it to our Bittersweet set that also includes The Hoodoo Gurus, Galactic and Me'Shell Ndege'Ocello. Jarvis Cocker reveals his inner-pirate and we go live with a double bill of Streetwalkers and Muddy Waters. It's then off to France and Germany for our Electronique Traumspiel finale from Heldon and Herbert F. Bairy!

"Oh my dear, every salted tear it wrings, bittersweet applause"
* I mentioned in the show that the two women on the Country Life cover struck an amazing resemblance to Jeannie and Susie Miller, two beautiful sisters I knew in the mid-70's in Boston. If I wasn't sure that it wasn't them, I would lay down a bet. Like many old friends, I have no idea where they are now. If you do, tell them to contact RFW!
