(Kevin) Ayers, (John) Cale, Nico, (Brian) Eno - Heartbreak Hotel

John Cale, Kevin Ayers, Brian Eno, and Nico.  I don't know how this concert came about, but the resulting album is just called "June 1, 1974."

It's a keeper.  I already loved John Cale and Nico from the Velvet Underground, and Eno from Roxy Music.  Kevin Ayers I didn't know from a heart palpitation, but he worked out okay.  Olie Halsal on guitar, I totally approved.  Great material and a skewed point of view, Herculean attitude all around.  Screw the Sixties; the Seventies were much more happening. 

And don't make fun of the clothes, it was the times, don't you know.  We were so impaired that we needed the bright colors, you know, just to be safe.
