Four pioneering Brian Eno ambient albums to be reissued

Four seminal Brian Eno albums are going to be reissued on the 16th of November via UMC / Virgin EMI.

The four albums Discreet Music, Music for Films, Music for Airports and On Land have all been remastered at half speed for 45 RPM by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios and spread across two, 180-gram vinyl discs. “Although originally released interspersed with other albums and thus not fully sequential, these landmark records chart 4 key points in a fascinating journey that saw Eno explore generative music, found-sound ‘non instruments’, studio experimentation, ‘figurative music’ and – most notably – building upon Erik Satie’s concept of ‘furniture music’, eventually coining the now vernacular-standard term ‘ambient,’” explains the label this reissue series. You can pre-order the albums here.
