I just wish I'd been there on June 6th. I actually knew a guy who was there and was so jealous. I was already an Kevin Ayers / Eno / Velvet Underground Fan and their playing together made me rush out and buy the Album (on vinyl). I now of course have it on CD and mp3'd on my PC. Kevin Ayers I knew from his background in Soft Machine and later gave Mike Oldfield a job as a Guitarist in the "Whole world". He needed to be seen live to be really appreciated, which of course I had many times (I still want a powder blue velvet jacket). Eno was and still is out on his own, although I find it hard to forgive him for writing the 'W95 Microsoft Sound'. Nico's rendition of the Doors Song 'The End' like John Cale's version of 'Heartbreak Hotel' set standards not exceeded since, especially as this was a one off live performance of friends, not an established band. If you like any of the artists or all of them, buy this album, you will not be disappointed.

Ben is as someone else pointed out 'spot on'. Side 2 (track 5 onwards) is far superior to the efforts on side 1 made by Eno (caterwauling), John Cale (bored, and maybe somewhat pi%%ed off that Ayers had, ahem, been very friendly with his wife the night before - allegedly) and Nico (appalling vocals).
.
Fine backing band including the late Archie Leggat on bass, a giant of a man I knew for a while back in the '80's when he was the beau of my landlady in London, W3. Buy this album if just for Ayers's performance, magical, timeless and dreamlike. 4stars purely because of the quality of side 2. Shame it isn't longer...anybody care to release the full performance?

Amazon proved itself to be customers friendly, as they provided me with very good customers service.
The album however is -as everybody knows, a very fine album
The problem here is, that the site mentions 'extra live tracks' on this version. However there are no extra live track on it.

(LP format review)

On the first anniversary of the cursed accident that had forced Robert Wyatt (former drummer of Soft Machine) to a wheelchair, a group of friends and fellows performed in the mythical Rainbow theatre, transferring the evening takings to the "pension fund" of the unfortunate artist. This disc, published just 28 days after, is the testimony of the event.

We are around to the "Canterbury School", here represented by professors Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Ollie Halsall (guitarist of "Patto") and even Robert Wyatt on percussion; with them, as lecturer, the PhD Eno. Invited for the occasion, the old student Nico and the young, undergraduated Mike Oldfield.

The first side of the LP is occupied by two songs written by Eno, followed by a classic r&r song interpreted by Cale (who plays the cello in other tracks) and the Morrison's song "The end", interpreted by the spectral Nico, alone with her voice and the harmonium (notes mentioning also the intervention of Eno to synthesizer: not essential.

The highlight of the evening was photographed in the second side, where we can listen to five songs of Ayers: while the last is almost a short "Goodbye" in dropping, the first three songs are enriched by the jazz-styled guitar of Halsall and the fourth by the unmistakable guitar of Oldfield. In particular, in "Shouting in a bucket blues" Halsall becomes protagonist thanks to its precise fingering that allows him to not miss a note (of several) even in the most difficult and fast processing steps.

As I said, this album photographs (the end of...) an era. It is a pity that, among the many unnecessarily lengthy remakes, the entire concert has not yet been published in its entirety: it seems clear, even from as are separate tracks on the disc, that artists performed well for longer time.
A requirement for the "students" of any ... musical school!

Truly jaw-dropping improvised guitar solos by Ollie Halsall on the Kevin Ayers songs "May I" and "Shouting in a Bucket". The rest of the album is a mixed bag, but generally very good.
