801live801 LIVE (Collectors Edition) by 801 (Expression Records)

On September 3rd 1976 recorded live in the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Island Mobile; Phil Manzanera, Brian Eno, Bill Monkman, Simon Phillips and Lloyd Watson made a live alternative record with atmospheric and cool covers songs that Europe has ever given us. With classic songs like Baby’s On Fire, you hear Brian Eno without a studio behind him singing live, TNK (Tomorrow Never Knows) a Beatles cover is done and You Really Got Me (a Kinks cover).  The live versions heard on here make for a classic recording by this wondrous mixture of talent. However, for the Collectors Edition, as an added CD the entire set was recorded earlier in the studio as well too on August 23rd 1976. So now you get to see the differences between an actual studio rehearsal for this show recorded and mixed by this group and you get to hear a live recording of those exact same songs in the exact same order. Amazing to hear the differences back to back. Great packaging idea! (Jonathan D. Wright)
