The album was dedicated to Susie, a drummer who auditioned for Roxy Music in the early days. The cover features model Kari-Ann Muller, one of the rare Roxy models who didn't date Bryan Ferry. She later married Mick Jagger's brother Chris and appeared in the James Bond film "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service".
The album has been released in different packages over the years. The album's original cover, as issued in 1972 by Island Records, featured a gatefold sleeve picturing the band in stage attire and did not include "Virginia Plain." The album's original U.S. release, in late 1972 on Warner Bros. Records' Reprise subsidiary, included "Virginia Plain," which had been issued as a single in the UK prior to the album's U.S. release. The original U.S. release also featured a gatefold sleeve, but replaced Simpson's photo with that of Rik Kenton, who played bass on "Virginia Plain" following Simpson's departure from the group.
U.S. distribution of Roxy Music was transferred from Reprise to their affiliated company Atco Records in 1976, and back to Reprise in the mid-1980s. LP editions of the album pressed in these time frames were without the gatefold sleeve and band photographs, instead providing liner notes on the rear album cover.
In most later repressings of the album, including CD versions, the song "Virginia Plain" has been included.
