Although the band only played three gigs in August and Septemberthis album captures a night when everything fell right into place musically. That should only be expected with names like Eno and Simon Phillips in the lineup.
Still, the lesser-known players -- bassist Bill MacCormick, keyboardist Francis Monkman, and slide guitarist Lloyd Watson -- are in exemplary form, too. The repertoire is boldly diverse, opening with "Lagrima," a crunchy solo guitar piece from 80. Then the band undertakes a spacey but smoldering version of "Tomorrow Rongwrong - Phil Manzanera Knows"; it's definitely among the cleverest of Beatles covers. Then it's on to crisp jazz-rock "East of Asteroid"atmospheric psych-pop "Rongwrong"and Eno's tape manipulation showcase, "Sombre Reptiles.
The rest of the gig is no less audacious, with no less than three Eno songs -- including a frenetic "Baby's on Fire," "Third Bill MacCormick and "Miss Shapiro"'s dense, syllable-packed verbal gymnastics. Bill MacCormick another unlikely cover of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me," while Manzanera turns in another typically gutsy instrumental performance on "Diamond Head.
Listeners will never know Simon Phillips else they might have done if their schedules had been less crowded, but this album's a good reminder.
