Biography

“In the early seventies I found myself preferring film soundtracks to most other types of records. What drew me to them was their sensuality and unfinished-ness - in the absence of the film they invited you, the listener, to complete them in your mind. If you hadn't even seen the film, the music remained evocative - like the lingering perfume of somebody who's just left a room ... Read more in Amazon's Brian Eno Store

This live album was recorded while Eno was still playing his eccentric brand of progressive rock music. The muscular backup band he formed, Maxwell's Demon, keeps things moving with a lot of force. The sound quality is generally good, except on "Fat Lady of Limbourg" and "Third Uncle," which were obviously taped by someone sitting in the audience at the show (although even these tracks are quite listenable). Hearing Eno singing the classic "Fever" is easily worth the price of the CD. Overall, however, the high price of this import means that it is not a great introduction to Eno, if you haven't heard him before.

This is essentially a bootleg of BBC shows. Eno made some live appearances with a band called The Winkies in his post-Roxy Music career, before a collapsed lung cut his early live career short.
The songs here are mostly from "Taking Tiger Mountain" and "Here Come the Warm Jets." In a live setting they lose a little of the atmospheric and eerie qualities they have on those two albums, but they gain a sense of sheer fun and eccentricity that makes up for the loss. Brian Eno rocks? You betcha.
The CD is short, and the sound quality is rough in spots. It would be nice to have a "legitimate" version of these shows, but so far it hasn't come to pass. The energy and sheer craziness makes up for the rough sound quality. Overall this is essential for the Eno fan, and a lot of fun for anybody into interesting rock music. The CD is currently listed as "out of print," but like many of these semi-legitimate releases, it'll probably pop up again. Get it when you have the opportunity.

These six tracks have been bootlegged many times, as "Dali's Car," "Music for Palaces" (disc 1), "Music for Fans Vol.1" and other names. Tracks 1, 2, 5 & 6 were recorded 19 February & 26 February 1974 in BBC studio Four. Tracks 3 & 4 were recorded live at the Reading Festival (with the Winkies), 26 August 1974.

The other disc of Music for Palaces (Music For Fans Vol.2) includes Seven Deadly Finns, Later On, R.A.F. and The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

The tracks are all interesting from a historical perspective, but not great fidelity. Don't pay a lot of money for them -- you can always download them for free with a little work -- and that doesn't reward bootleggers.

I do remember hearing these tracks back in the '80s from some sort of bootleg, which makes the current issues questionable I'm sure...BUT, this is sound that you won't find anywhere else in Eno's discography. Smooth, rolling renditions of some of the classics. I love them all, and the production/recording quality has become part of the sound for me--no bother at all. The bar sounds and buildup intro to "Fat Lady of Limbourg" is fabulous.

In short, if you love Eno's big four (Before and After Science, Here Come the Warm Jets, Another Green World, and Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy), and especially if you are a fan of the renowned "801 Live", (these tracks have a very similar feel to that concert), you owe it to yourself to get a listen to this.
