The full title is _Taking_Tiger_Mountain_(By_Strategy)_....

Funny thing, that: As I was waking up, mere minutes ago, I was thinking about
this album. Funny little precog....

Holds up, but not as well as either's solo work, methinks. Eno's high point,
IMHO, is _Here_Come_The_Warm_Jets_, while Cale's is either _Fear_ or
_Paris_1919_. All are essential.

And Eno's best production still has to be _Q:_Are_We_Not_Men...., while Cale's
must be the first Squeeze lp....
