801 Live is the first live album by 801, released in November 1976. In 1976, while Roxy Music had temporarily disbanded, 801 got together as a temporary project and began rehearsing at Island Studios, Hammersmith, about three weeks before their first concert. 801 performed three concerts: in Norfolk, at the Reading Festival, and on 3 September at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. The final concert was recorded and released as the album 801 Live.

801 Live was musically many things to many people, though it surely stood at the crossroads or intersection of rock, progressive music, pop, and experimentational sounds. While Brian Eno was responsible for being the cosmic imager with an earthbound attitude, it was Phil Manzanera who was responsible for the sonic textures and direction of the music, coming off as sophisticated and elegant, even sleek, creating a morphing of fusion which heretofore had yet to take physical for. eaning that this was a beginning, a spot on the map that. The interplay of musicians was nimble, considered, and precise, which of course allowed the music to come off effortlessly. If I were to cite one aspect of this album that stood out above all the rest, it would be the sensational drumming of Simon Phillips, an aspect that set the stage and a rather high bar for other drummers to follow in.

801 provided Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera with one of his most intriguing side projects. Although the band only played three gigs in August and September 1976, this 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, to.

It was 42 years since Phil last played at the QEH recording the famous 801 Live album with Brian Eno. . 185. 17. My friend Mauro di Domenico, fantastic guitarist, playing my track Espiritu.

An album that Manzanera calls a high point in his career.
