Live (Collector's Edition)
(Expression / MVD / See Of Sound)


The founding guitarist in Roxy Music, Phil Manzanera is also renowned for his excellent recordings—both solo and with the group Quiet Sun. One of Manzanera’s most popular albums was the famous 801 Live, featuring Phil backed up by illustrious players such as his partner in Quiet Sun, Bill MacCormick (bass/vocals), Eno (synth/vocals/guitar/tapes), drummer Simon Phillips and more. In 2009 Manzanera’s Expression label reissued the original 801 Live album as a double "Collector's Edition" CD set featuring the original September 3, 1976 concert in England along with a second CD of rehearsals for that concert recorded at Shepperton studios on August 23, 1976. The rehearsal CD is actually a mirror CD of the original concert album which featured various tracks from the Quiet Sun album, Eno’s Another Green World along with live in the studio versions from Phil’s mid ‘70s albums. Still featuring that famous iconic cover art with MacCormick’s bass, one of the most famous live albums from one of England’s greatest electric guitarists just got a little better. Manzanera watchers should also take note of other recent Expression Records releases including 801 Live @ Hull (from 1977), 801 Latino (from 1999) and another 801 CD release entitled 801 Manchester (also from the 1977 801 UK tour). www.Manzanera.com / www.MVDB2B.com
