Produced by him, it was released on Island Records in January 1974. The musical style of Here Come the Warm Jets is a hybrid of glam rock and art pop, similar to Eno's previous album work with Roxy Music, although in a stronger experimental fashion

Tracklist: 1. Needles In The Camel’s Eye, 2. The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch, 3. Baby’s On Fire, 4. Cindy Tells Me, 5. Driving Me Backwards, 6. On Some Faraway Beach, 7. Blank Frank, 8. Dead Finks Don’t Talk, 9. Some Of Them Are Old, 10. Here Come The Warm Jets. 1. Needles In The Camel’s Eye. 2. The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch.

Eno's solo debut, Here Come the Warm Jets, is a spirited, experimental collection of unabashed pop songs on which Eno mostly reprises his Roxy Music role as "sound manipulator," taking the lead vocals but leaving much of the instrumental work to various studio cohorts (including ex-Roxy mates Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay, plus Robert Fripp and others). Eno's compositions are quirky, whimsical, and catchy, his lyrics bizarre and often free-associative, with a decidedly dark bent in their humor ("Baby's on Fire," "Dead Finks Don't Talk")

His first solo album, 1974’s Here Come the Warm Jets, lunges out of its gates with the gigantic tone-bending riff of Needles in the Camel’s Eye. It’s a startlingly simple song-its guitar solo is essentially just the major scale you learn at your first lesson-made glorious by Eno’s fanatical attention to details of arrangement and timbre, and by his one-of-a-kind voice, precise and heady, with the long, rounded vowels of a former chorister. That’s not all Eno got from the church hymns of his childhood. Eno might have gone on to duplicate the r pattern of Roxy Music, but the Warm Jets tour was cut off early when his lung collapsed. Once he recovered, he worked almost entirely in the recording studio with a new tool he developed in that period in collaboration with visual artist Peter Schmidt: Oblique Strategies.

Finally, Warm Jets is closer in form to the final album, Before and After Science, which I think came out better after years of experience. Warm Jets was originally very exciting to the European Market, so people are always pointing to this album over Before and After. I never got the "Baby's On Fire" frenzy, and I think some of the popular "heat" generated by this album distracted from the incredible work of the next three projects. The must have albums of these four are Another Green World and Taking Tiger Mountain, followed by Before and After, and maybe if I could. Eno's voice may or may not be immediately likable to you, but I personally really like it. His voice has style, though not in a suave or crooning way like a certain past bandmate of his, Bryan Ferry, whom he does seem to imitate the vocal stylings of at times to humorous effect.
