Fripp played on Heroes and Scary Monsters. The guitars on Low were played by Bowie, Alomar and Gardiner.

Visconti was the producer :)

:dog:
was eno just on synths? or not there?
i knew fripp was on the others, but i also thought he was there for heroes :shrug:
the one that sounds like scarborough fair, sounds so much like his tone!

i got mixed up with visconti, thought he did heroes, as "supposedly" its him and a woman he had an affair with kissing by the wall?

I think Eno was responsible for synths, keyboards and "treatments", although he got a writing credit for Warszawa.

The guitar sounds on "Weeping Wall" are sonically similar in places to Fripp, but don't sound like his playing style.

The lady doing the vocals on "Sound and Vision" was Mary Visconti (née Hopkin) who had achieved second place at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1970 with "Knock Knock, Who's There?"

The lady with Visconti at the wall during the recording of Heroes was Antonia Maaß, allegedly. :wink:

cheers :tu:

i should probably do some actual reading, im sure theres plenty out there on the various studio sessions.
for some reason, ive never done that with bowie, whereas the beatles, who i dont even really like as much, read loads :shrug:
although, that did start from a college project and just never stopped...
