Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 11/99, p.148
4 stars out of 5 - "...The zig-zagging mood takes in Latin detail...and overall the album is a fine period portrait of '70s eccentric eclecticism..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 3/00, pp.118-9
" adventurous progressive pop outing crafted with the help of a stellar wrecking crew including John Wetton, Paul Thompson, Robert Wyatt and Brian Eno..."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.88
4 stars out of 5 -- "DIAMOND HEAD is an all-star party...a supergroup in all but name blending avant-garde with more recognisable rock motifs."

Product Description:

Recording information: Island Studios, London (12/1974-01/1975).
Phil Manzanera's first post-Roxy foray into solo albums is a terrific all-star affair that still holds up enormously well. Calling on favors from Roxy members present and past, and those from the Cambridge/British art rock scene, Manzanera assembled a supergroup for every song. Robert Wyatt sings Spanish gibberish on the opener "Frontera," a rewrite of his own "Team Spirit." Brian Eno teams up for the sunny "Big Day" and the nonsensical "Miss Shapiro," both of which would not have been out of place on his own early solo albums. John Wetton (of several groups including Family and Asia) sings a duet with Doreen Chanter (of the Chanter Sisters and the Joe Cocker Band), and Bill MacCormick of Matching Mole and Quiet Sun sings his own "Alma," the album's closing ballad. Fans of any of the singers above, not to mention Manzanera, whose party this is, won't be disappointed. A majority of these tracks went on to form the set list for 801 Live. ~ Ted Mills
