Background: 801 was a short-lived group featuring Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera (of Roxy Music) as well as members of Curved Air and Quiet Sun.

The band had changing members over the years, but 801 Live was their first LP, recorded in late 1976.

Allmusic.com gave 801 Live a 4 1/2 star review:

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. …801 Live is a cohesive document of an unlikely crew who had fun and took chances. Listeners will never know what else they might have done if their schedules had been less crowded, but this album’s a good reminder.
