Amazing live performance of Roxy Music's "In Every Dream Home a Heartache" from 1973

Somehow this impressive 1973 Roxy Music performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test has never crossed by transom. Until now. "In Every Dream Home a Heartache" has always been a disturbing song (about Ballardian ennui and a guy who falls in love with, feels betrayed by, and then kills(?) an inflatable doll). But Bryan Ferry's dead-eyed stare and near-motionless delivery of the lyrics here only add to the creeping discomfort.
