The Eno Files: Part II

Roxy Music (1972) A wholly unique creation. The sound of old Motown records being melted and passed through Eno’s synthesiser.

Here Come the Warm Jets (1973) The debut solo album, equal parts daftness and genius.

June 1, 1974 (1974) Live album with Kevin Ayers, John Cale, and Nico.

Before and After Science (1977) I’ve always had a soft spot for this solo work.

Devo: Question: Are We Not Men? Answer: We Are Devo! (1978) He produced Devo as well. Got to like a bit of Devo.

Brian Eno & David Bryne: My Life in the Bush of Ghosts (1981) One of his best.

Ambient 4 / On Land (1982) Yet another perfect album. Especially “Dunwich Beach, Autumn, 1960”.

Dune Soundtrack (1984) It’s got the ‘Prophecy Theme’ on it. Therefore worth owning you understand.

Passengers: Original Soundtracks (1995) Enjoyable collaboration with U2

Part III on the way soon.
