Eno & The Winkies- Peel Session 1974

After the release of "Here Come The Warm Jets," Eno embarked on his one and only solo tour with the Winkies (a glam-ish Pub Rock band) as his backing band, but he suffered from a collapsed lung after only five dates.
It's weird to think of a Pub Rock band backing Eno, but these more direct, rocked out, and non-electronic versions work just fine. A great song in any form is still a great song.

1) Baby's On Fire
2) Totalled (re-worked later as "I'll Come Running")
3) The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch
4) Fever (Peggy Lee cover)
