4 stars A live showpiece. How often do you see a band who issues a live album before issuing a studio album. Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) and Brian Eno headline a group that includes the first appearance of Simon Phillips on drums, Francis Monkman (Sky) on Keyboards, Bill MacCormick (Manzanera's Quiet Sun) on Bass and Lloyd Watson on slide guitar. Most of the songs are from Manzanera's Diamond Head album or from Eno's early albums. Add to that John Lennon and Kinks songs, and you have one interesting live album. Manzanera is a great guitar stylist, unlike most players who try to be the exhibitionists. Add to that Eno's electronic treatments and vocals. It makes for one entertaining album.
