NOT the first reissue of this German title, but the first ever reissue from the master tapes and definitely sounding superior to all previous versions!

First of two from this band, which was a real rarity (as were most of the folk/progressive Basque items) until this reissue. I once read a review that described this as in the same territory as the first Renaissance line up (with Keith Relf, Jane Relf...


“The English translation of Allt Är Intet is "All Is Nothingness"
- an apt enough title for a band already possessed of the scorched earth sonic tendencies and nihilist-leaning name of The End. Yet there's some ambiguity to that philosophy; the most bleak and despairing interpretation can be countered by a more all-embracing, one-with-the-universe meditativeness. Perhaps surprisingly, either conclusion proves to fit Allt Är Intet, the remarkable second full-length album by The End. The powerhouse...

"A collaboration between Norwegian baritone saxophonist Kjetil Moster, Swedish baritone sax burner Mats Gustafson, Norwegian noise jazz guitarist Anders Hana (MoHa!, Ultralyd, Noxagt), power-house drummer Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and the extraordinary Ethiopian born experimental singer Sofia Jernberg. This uncompromising debut is delivered with sledgehammer authority."

I've seen all four of these great players in various groupings and they are all monsters of swinging free-bop and this is even greater than the sum of its parts. Nice!

"1. Born in the Fire Secular: The opening track discusses the law, where only the rich have access to justice. Though the choices we make often are built on trust and fair play, as soon as the law gets involved this can become a cold hearted maze of confusion and feelings of vengeance.
2. Someone Shall Rise Sacred: Throughout history, individuals have been inspired by an inner fire to take a moral stand against corrupt power and often suffered terribly for their convictions. Such people often seem...

"This 2012 studio album of symphonic rock music was voted into the top 10 albums of 2012 in leading British broadsheet The Guardian, including the track "One and the Many" reaching 6th best song for that year. The Enid were the pioneers of Symphonic...

“British group THE ENID were formed around the founder/keyboardist Robert John GODFREY (BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST) and his fellow founder members, guitarists Stephen STEWART and Francis LICKERISH in 1973. Almost like a combination of classical and rock, the band combined vast orchestral movements, exclusively classical instrumentation, rigorous construction completely well-written and romantic rock music led by composer Robert John GODFREY. For the most part the albums have some orchestrated sound, all...

"The Enid are a British progressive rock band formed in 1974 by ex-Barclay James Harvest keyboard player Robert John Godfrey. Something Wicked This Way Comes, the band’s fifth album (1983) was the first Enid album to feature vocals, and this live collection was captured during the period following its release. The band then consisted of Godfrey (keyboards), Steve Stewart (guitars, bass), Chris North (drums, percussion) and Glen Tollet (bass, keyboards, tuba). Claret Hall Farm was a camping weekend for...

"One thing's clear: it's time everyone went and worshipped at the temple of The Enid."—Rachel Mann, Prog Magazine

"It's been close to four decades since The Enid released their pivotal debut album, now returning with their 13th studio album, The Bridge. Vocalist Joe Payne's semi operatic voice is accompanied by Godfrey's lush and unfathomably deep orchestrations and Max Read's immense choir. Jason Ducker's ambient guitars provide a psychedelic wash, steering the sound away from the purely...

A mid 70s classic - and I mean classic; if you don't already own it, you have no excuse now!

Eno's brilliant 3rd solo album, from 1975. Many great instrumental and vocal pieces, all of which are justifiably classics. For me, this is definitely his single greatest work. Players include Percy Jones-fretless bass, John Cale- viola, Robert Fripp-guitars, Phil Collins-drums and Eno himself, among others. This influenced everyone one of your favorite arty rock albums for the next 5 years at a minimum!..

The fourth and final of Eno's 'rock quartet', this one was from 1977. The band includes Paul Rudolph-bass, Phil Collins-drums, Percy Jones-fretless bass, Jaki Liebezeit-drums, Fred Frith-guitar, Cluster and more.

Classic 1975 ambient work; Eno's first 'purely' ambient work and certainly one of his best, and possibly also one of his most influencial.

Eno's first solo album, fresh outta Roxy, if not straight outta Compton, is seemingly simplistic, but deep on repeated listenings and quite brilliant for its 1973 time. With Robert Fripp (who contributes some scorching solos), Phil Manzanera and more.

"First time ever CD release of a specially created 22 track album. More Music For Films is combines the extremely hard-to-find Music For Films Volume 2 album (only released on vinyl as a part of the long out-of-print 1983 Working Backwards LP box set), together with 11 additional, never before commercially available tracks taken from the exceptionally rare, promo-only sampler (limited to just 500 copies) that was originally sent only to a select group of film directors."

Low key but still excellent collection of music that was used in films. With appearances by: Phil Collins, Robert Fripp, Bill MacCormick, Percy Jones, Fred Frith, Dave Mattacks, John Cale, and many others.

“Typical ambient / instrumental Eno apart from the first track, which is a refreshing guitar-featuring piece, and this didn’t disappoint. It’s an amazing film with an incredible soundtrack. I've been recommending it to anyone who'll listen.”

2004 remastered edition. Eno's classic 2nd solo album, from 1974, recorded right after leaving Rox Music. This has a core band of Eno-electronics, snake guitar, keyboards, vocals, Phil Manzanera-guitars, Brian Turrington-bass, Freddie Smith-drums & Robert Wyatt-percussion & vocals. More great songs here.

A nice ambient soundtrack to footage of the Apollo missions now hugely expanded; Eno's ambient music is extremely well suited to the otherworldly images.

“Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks was written, produced and performed by Brian Eno together with his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois. The music was originally recorded in 1983 for a landmark feature-length documentary, For All Mankind, directed by American journalist, film director and screenwriter, Al Reinert.

Extremely influential 1979-1980 collaboration between Brian Eno and the leader of the Talking Heads (along with some guest musicians) and a lot of 'found vocalists' mostly taken from broadcasts by radio talk show hosts and evangelists. In pre-sampling days, it was a really radical idea...times have certainly changed! I remember when I worked at a record store there were people coming in every week to ask about if this was released yet! This includes 7 tracks that weren't on the original release as well...

One of a number of classic albums that pianist/composer Harold Budd made with the collaboration of Brian Eno on the EG label. This has Budd's beautiful, watery piano sound with various treatments and atmospherics. Icily lovely.

Hmmmm...Eno, Moebius & Roedelius...that would make this.... The second of two releases by Cluster and Eno, released in 1978, this follows onward from their classic first album. Nice to have this classic spacey/ambient album generally available again. This was recorded when Eno's star was at its zenith.
