Choon Choosday: Brian Eno – Music for Airports 1/1

13 September, 2016

I’m not sure when I first heard of Brian Eno and in what context, but I’m pretty sure it was around the late 80s or early 90s when I was listening to ambient house and someone must have recommended his Ambient series to me. Which I then went out and bought and fell in love with. Later, I found out that he had produced “Remain In Light”, my favourite studio album by Talking Heads, amongst others of theirs. And then I got hold of My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, and some years after that discovered he had produced Bowie during his best years working in Berlin.

So in short, Eno has produced some brilliant work, and here is a link to the first part of his best solo album. Just think, if I’d known he was in Roxy Music before I heard all the stuff above, I wouldn’t have given him the time of day. And I would never have discovered this

chooooooooooooonn!!

  1. I had not heard this before – but what a wonderful composition! He should be heralded as the genius composer that he is – I remember that he was part of the Portsmouth Sinfonia in the early 70s. As well as inspiring Bowie and Roxy Music – he produced many artistes such as Laurie Anderson, Talking Heads (where are they now?) to Grace Jones and Cold Play. I remember his group Devo being booed off stage at Knebworth wh en I went there in 1978 (or there abouts) – yet I thought they were the best thing there.

    • I recommend the whole album and indeed all of the Ambient series, although this is the best one I think. It’s amazing how wide Eno’s influence and work is.
      I didn’t know he had worked with Laurie Anderson, i loved O Superman. I’ll even forgive him working with Coldplay for that. I’m a huge Talking Heads fan – I loved the way they experimented with different genres and were never afraid to try new things. David Byrne’s solo work is pretty good too.
      One thing though – please don’t use the P word round me!!

      • I promise never to that P word on any responses to your post ever again – am I forgiven? I am also a fan of David Byrne and Talking Heads. Well I wouldn’t buy a Coldplay album or have it in the house, but they do make good festival material – its all that confidence gained at Glastonbury that does it.

      • Of course you’re forgiven. But I had to disinfect my computer to get rid of that word.
        I’m not sure i could enjoy Coldplay even if it was in that special festival atmosphere. Although to be fair i did like their tune Spies, and i think i even linked it to ChCh once

      • There you go…

  2. I listen to this in the mountains and driving cross country. I’ve also have listened in a airport f.y.i. Thanks!
