The High Road is Roxy Music's second live release with only four over-five minute tracks, two of them cover songs and one a Ferry solo effort originally released on The Bride Stripped Bare. It was recorded at the Apollo in Glasgow, Scotland on August 30, 1982 (1982-08-30).[2] The band continued to tour after the EP release finishing its last date on 28 May 1983.[5] It reached number 26 in the UK Album Charts.[6] Despite sharing the same title and cover art, there are no recordings on this album in common with the "High Road" videocassette/DVD, which was recorded in Frejus, France August 27, 1982. So far, none of the recordings on this album have been issued on CD.

While the same songs were released on the full length CD "Heart Still Beating" they were different from different locations and performances than those from "The High Road" EP.
