Major league

HOLY SHIT. This Eno/Manzanera/misc. others album is going to make up for the last three days of posting nothing. It's a guitar heavy, spacey, frantic mess rolled together in one impressive package (made in 1976). Allmusic claims this performance was one of only 3 nights when the group performed together. Everything synched up flawlessly like Doc Ellis pitching a no-hitter on LSD. The album includes a Beatles cover (Tomorrow Never Knows), a Kinks cover (You Really Got Me) and 3 of Eno's own. I bought this record almost blindly, simply wanting to own it because of Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, and when I got home and turned it on, I was in heaven. The upper most parts of the stratosphere. Here's the link, listen to the whole thing, all ya's. Does a body better than good.
