Phil Manzanera reissues
Phil Manzanera is interviewed in Daily Express, and two albums are mentioned, that are reissued today. We are talking about Manzanera´s firs solo album "Diamond Head", with Robert Wyatt singing on "Frontera", and Quiet Sun´s (Manzanera, Dave Jarrett, Charles Hayward and Bill McCormick, plus Eno and Ian McCormick) "Mainstream", both recorded during the same period, and released in 1975.
These albums are recommended for most Wyatt and Canterbury fans , and if you have access to Spotify, you may check them out there. The reissue of "Diamond Head" seems to have two extra tracks, "Charumba" and "Corazon Y Alma", while the Quiet Sun album has five extra tracks and a pretty thick booklet.
Read about "Diamond head" and "Mainstream" over at Phil Manzanera´s site, and order signed copies if you like.
