40 Year Itch: Ooh Poo Peru

Phil Manzanera with Brian Eno : Big Day

   Brian Eno offers vocals and word play on this track from his former Roxy Music bandmate, guitarist Phil Manzanera's first solo album, Diamond Head. Manzanera , who grew up in Latin and South America, rarely made big statements on guitar in Roxy and on Diamond Head he seems comfortable allowing others to shine. Robert Wyatt sings the opening cut, "Frontera",  in drunken Spanish. Other guests include Roxy members past and present: Andy Mackay, Eddie Jobson, Paul Thompson and John Wetton.
