More Than This was the first single to be released from Roxy Music's Avalon album. It reached number 6 in UK with the instrumental track India as the b-side. The USA single had the non album track Always Unknowing as the b-side. A 12" single was pressed but the version was the same as the single and album. A Brazilian promo by Polydor was pressed with Jean Michael Jarre on the b-side. The song was rehearsed for the Avalon tour but was dropped after the first show in Dublin. It was rehearsed for Bryan Ferry's As Time Goes By tour in 1999 but was never performed publicly

Redirected from Tara (Roxy Music song)). Avalon is the eighth and final studio album by English rock band Roxy Music. Released in May 1982, it was recorded in 1981–82 at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, and is generally regarded as the culmination of the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of the band's later work. It was the band's most successful studio album, reaching No. 1 in the UK (for 3 weeks) and staying on the album charts for over a year

Avalon was Roxy Music's last album and their biggest seller. The band started out as more of a glam rock outfit, but they later turned to melancholy pop, with this song being the apotheosis of that sound. I always thought the lyrics were speaking about finding love so perfect that there was nothing more to be found. More than this, there is nothing. Sort of like being totally and completely saturated by satisfying love with no need to look further, complete; a sentiment similar to the lyrics of "I Could Not Ask For More. Esskayess from Dallas, TxRM had finally grown up when the Avalon album came out.
