Reply to an older post  :)
Fripp, Eno, Budd, Hassell...such an influence on me in my younger years...  ::)
Great - I also love all of them, especially Eno and Hassell.

However...Budd started writing for string quartet in recent years and Eno just put out Lux, the best ambient he's done in years.
Yes - Lux is a Beauty - for me among his very best albums (including his classics from the 70s and early 80s).

I used to collect Brian Eno's albums but lost interest when he departed from ambient music. However, because Lux is highly praised here and elsewhere, I purchased it only recently, and I also found it very good.
I have Neroli and The Shutov Assembly (one of my favorites), but the bonus tracks of the reissues are tempting.

I have all four. Those extra tracks make them tempting, particularly Neroli.

Agreed, 7/4!

Neroli looks particularly inviting and I will pick that one up when it is released.

Speaking of new releases, this seems like an appropriate place to post this new release:

Fripp & Eno - Live in Paris

Wise words from Que:

Never waste a good reason for a purchase....  ;)

Finally got to


and I must say it's the first Eno album I've enjoyed from start to finish since.. I don't know when? (although I adore his 2008 collaboration with David Byrne, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today). Surprisingly fresh and adventurous.

Shutov Assembly also is a Eno-favorite of mine - underrated - I prefer it to say Apollo anytime.

Brian Eno: Discreet Music - Contact (cantaloupe music)

http://cantaloupemusic.com/albums/brian-eno-discreet-music

"In Contact’s version, acoustic and electric instruments (cello, violin, soprano saxophone, guitar, double bass, vibraphone, piano, flute and gongs) take the place of Eno’s EMS synthesizer, channeling the underlying melodies of the piece until the ensemble itself becomes a kind of “looping apparatus,” as Pergolesi describes it."

This is very good. Contact is Canada's contemporary music ensemble, led by percussionist Jerry Pergolesi.

Thanks for the heads up! Looks like another gem in Cantaloupe's catalogue.

Is there anything to be preferred about the DVD edition [1999 live performance], aside maybe from the included documentary? 



I watched this documentary last night on YouTube.  It was quite interesting, and I did enjoy some of the snippets played.  Eno's Music for Airports being one.  :)

Brian Eno: Reflection



Released on January 1, 2017. It is similar to the long ambient pieces such as Neroli and Thursday Afternoon. I like this much better than the previous release The Ship. Really good.

Brian Eno circa 1973: "Classical music's a dead fish."

And this certainly doesn't fall under the umbrella - with all respect to Sniper, and with no intention to set him off into a wild _______ spree  :o ??? , I suggest moving this thread to The Diner.

No problem, though I actually filed them in my 'classical' collection, as others here will have done too.

I’d say that Avalon Sutra is probably one of the best entry points for getting into Harold Budd’s music:



What makes this particular collection of pieces so remarkable is the inclusion of a string quartet on many of them. The album’s TT is short overall, though, but having a short duration is the best way to enjoy this music IMHO.

Budd's solo work is usually too 'sweet' for me, but the lovely cover convinced me to check this album out and I'm pleasantly surprised. The strings compliment the reverberating piano beautifully.

Yep, it’s a beauty. My favorite Budd album.
