Heart Still Beating is a live album by Roxy Music.
It was recorded at a concert in Fréjus, France in 1982.
Roxy Music are a band I have a strong bias towards even if I much prefer the 1973 to 1975 band that gave us the four studio albums. I didn’t have a problem with Brian Eno leaving but I wasn’t so keen on the softer side that was developing on Siren.
This live album comes from their classy smooth pop period that they had after their comeback in 1979. Early Roxy had gone but this band still had plenty to offer.

I think this is a much stronger album than Concerto/Concert Classics/Ladyton (and probably other titles) from their 1979 tour.
Brian Ferry is in fine form and both guitar and saxophone blaze away when appropriate.
