One of my all time favourite albums,
By A Customer
This review is from: June 1, 1974 (Audio CD)
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.

Sorry to make you doubly jealous, but I was there too! Quite a night it was.
