"This is essentially a bootleg of BBC shows. Eno made some live appearances with a band called The Winkies in his post-Roxy Music career, before a collapsed lung cut his early live career short. The songs here are mostly from "Taking Tiger Mountain" and "Here Come the Warm Jets." In a live setting they lose a little of the atmospheric and eerie qualities they have on those two albums, but they gain a sense of sheer fun and eccentricity that makes up for the loss. Brian Eno rocks? You betcha.The CD is short, and the sound quality is rough in spots. It would be nice to have a "legitimate" version of these shows, but so far it hasn't come to pass. The energy and sheer craziness makes up for the rough sound quality. Overall this is essential for the Eno fan, and a lot of fun for anybody into interesting rock music. The CD is currently listed as "out of print," but like many of these semi-legitimate releases, it'll probably pop up again. Get it when you have the opportunity."
Definitely a boot leg

"The sound quality is not good in alot of spots. Definitely not worth $58.99?? I got a copy at a record show for a fraction of that. Only good for the pictures on the cover of early Eno. Also, an odd quote printed on back of Captain Beefheart, why??"
One Half of Music For Palaces

"These six tracks have been bootlegged many times, as "Dali's Car," "Music for Palaces" (disc 1), "Music for Fans Vol.1" and other names. Tracks 1, 2, 5 & 6 were recorded 19 February & 26 February 1974 in BBC studio Four. Tracks 3 & 4 were recorded live at the Reading Festival (with the Winkies), 26 August 1974.
The other disc of Music for Palaces (Music For Fans Vol.2) includes Seven Deadly Finns, Later On, R.A.F. and The Lion Sleeps Tonight.
The tracks are all interesting from a historical perspective, but not great fidelity. Don't pay a lot of money for them -- you can always download them for free with a little work -- and that doesn't reward bootleggers."
