    i have to admit: eno has never grabbed me, apart from his work with the talking heads. his music tends to, well, not have any balls, or any meat to it, in my opinion.

    i will grab this, though! bbc sessions tend to bring out the best of even mediocre artists! thank you!

    thank you thank you thank you – I’ve had about HALF of this, either on cassette or poor quality CD, for about 30 years.

    it’s so NICE to have the whole thing at long, long last –

    THANK YOU !!!!!

    come on, eno rules, in every way – as a pop star, but especially, as half of Fripp & Eno, and especially, as the master of ambient

    Eno is the root to so many fruits…

    Some very embarrassing cover songs on this… I think the emperor has no clothes!

    Second Jefre, especially where the early pop and ambient experiments are concerned, though ‘A Year With Swollen Appendices’ sits in my bathroom on top of the toilet, where it belongs.

    this is SO the shit!!!!!
    Brian Eno…. the most important artist/producer of the late 20th century
    captured in his brief r&r vocalist persona
    look at the top 100 LPs of the 70’s,80’s & 90’s…see what you find
