The Thrill of It All is a four-CD compilation box set by art rock band Roxy Music, released by Virgin in 1995 (see 1995 in music). This four-CD set was the first boxed set for Roxy Music; the next was Roxy Music: The Studio Collection released in August 2012. The first three discs of the set collected key album tracks from the band's eight studio albums. The fourth disc consists of a selection of singles, b-sides and remixes. The release features no previously unreleased tracks. Many of these b-sides are composed by other members of the band as Bryan Ferry wanted each member of the band to benefit from songwriting royalties.[2] The set was remastered by Robert Ludwig who also did the 1999 remasters for the Roxy Music catalogue.

All tracks written by Bryan Ferry except as noted.
