Kevin Ayers/John Cale/Eno/Nico: June 1, 1974 (Island)

Ira Robbins, Zoo World, 10 October 1974

LIVE ALBUMS have become an abundant nuisance which bands seem to feel an obligation to produce every few years, often with no redeeming content. The recording of a specific event for wider availability and posterity, however, is a much more legitimate enterprise, and June 1 proves how interesting such an album can be.
