    Here's another of those crossover discs that could be labeled as Progressive or Jazz Fusion.

    801 (band) sometimes called THE 801



    phil manzanera - gtr
    brian eno - keys, synths, gtr, voc, tape
    bill maccormick - bass, voc
    francis monkman - fender rhodes, clav
    simon phillips - drms, rhythm gen
    lloyd watson - slide gtr, voc

    band only played 3 live shows which appeared on 4 live albums, and then 1 studio album.

    This one has it's moments interspersed with odd parts, but deserves a full listen 45 minutes as the playing is excellent here on this live album here in full.

    After brief intro song, it jumps into jazz fusion cover of Beatles TNK - Tomorrow Never Knows. 12 trax. Intriguing in spots. On some odd songs (few voc trax), fusion parts interject as either just verse or chorus only & back again. Hey, we also heard vocs like these on some Jan Hammer Group lp's so who's to judge ?!?

    Obvious Roxy Music basis here (see lineup), Phillips propels it into some fine fusion areas. Keys are involved, yet backseated to some unusually different guitar playing. The album content spans so much varied conceptual ideas start to finish as a melding blend of jazz-fusion/prog/rock resulting in "fusion". style.

    Fair warning to the Kinks cover of You Really Got Me, 2nd next to last track (it's no VH version, had to put the Fair Warning VH pun in), but Eno & Phillips spin it to pass. Album ends with a fusion-type song. All said, it's really different & a cool listen just out of interest & curiousity.

    Excellent Review LM!! :beerchug:

    I like this album a lot and still spin it regularly. Not a perfect album but a great one-off cult classic. Bands / albums like this in the late 70's were doomed when music began transitioning in other directions away from progressive/experimental which was unfortunate but inevitable. I'll have to pull it out again soon.

    Funny I missed these guys back in the day. Youtube is great for discovering new music, even if it's old new music. ;)

    Have just built a new shelf for my jazz and jazz fusion records downstairs. Ran out of room in my upstairs cabinet.

    Nektar was probably my favorite Krautrock band. Not as jazzy as Guru Guru though.

    Will check out their UFO and Klanguru discs!

    Love 801, K-Scope is good as well. Diamond Head is one of my all time favorites of that era.

    Thanks CB !

    1st time I heard it. So cool it's in your collection.

    Might have been 1 of the earliest S.Phillips recordings at 19 y.o. after doing pit orchestra for Jesus Christ Superstar (UK show I recall, not USA).

    Phil M. really has a unique style.

    Good point about how progressive the scene was back then & how all strived to sound different rather than the same.

    We could blindfold listen & know right away who the band/artist was. Being different challenged them all to work harder to have their own "sound".

    The A & R guys from the hugh labels were all looking for something unique, something new.

    Funny how today they mostly look for the same formula, same trend to make a quick buck & move on to the next fad.

    The glory days were the best !

    Hey thanks ! Just listened to those on youtube & never heard them before.

    Great stuff and very enjoyable.

    You're right about youtube, we are finding very obscure videos & audio of music performances easily, and there is so much to find there.

    It's really cool we all have access to it, some stuff is legendary and glad it's archived.
