Deluxe Gatefold 180g 45RPM 2LP-Set Mastered at Half-Speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios

Brian Eno presents deluxe gatefold, 2LP heavyweight vinyl editions of his classic releases Here Come The Warm JetsTaking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)Another Green World and Before and after Science. Each album is now spread over two 180-gram vinyl discs, which play at 45 RPM and have been mastered at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, ensuring these seminal works sound better than ever before. Each album also contains an Obi, download voucher and Abbey Road Half Speed Master certificate.

With experimentalism, conceptual art theory and use of the accidental as a foundation, these albums broke through the boundaries of popular music at the time. Elements of prog/psych/art rock, avant garde and 50s rock ‘n' roll were combined with an array of cultural and philosophical ideas to create fresh sounding music, that was both visionary and captivating. Alongside George Martin and The Beatles' work on Sgt. Pepper's, Eno is arguably the other most pre-eminent practitioner of ‘studio as instrument' ever. His unconventional recording techniques have resulted in a canon of work that places him alongside other iconic producers like Brian Wilson, Lee Scratch Perry and Phil Spector. As these albums progress chronologically, a nascent form of music begins to emerge. The ideas we hear in this early work continue to reveal themselves in Eno's later ambient and electronic experiments.

1974's Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) is a loose concept album with topics ranging from espionage to the Chinese Communist revolution. To help guide production of the album, Eno and the album's cover artist Peter Schmidt developed the highly influential Oblique Strategies cards which proffered instructions intended to aid creativity. They were also used on subsequent albums and are still consulted by Eno and many others to this day. Unlike Here Come the Warm Jets Eno used fewer guest musicians, instead opting for a core band consisting of Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackey, Brian Turrington and Freddie Smith of The Winkies, Robert Wyatt, Phil Collins of Genesis and Brand X, members of Randi & The Pyramids, The Simplistics and Portsmouth Sinfonia (an orchestra in which Eno had once played clarinet.)
