Don Thrasher stops by for the first edition of a new segment dubbed “From the Used Bin,” where we find some underappreciated artists or works and discuss why they deserve more attention. This episode focuses on Brian Eno’s four mid-1970s vocal albums.
Don talks about when he discovered these Eno albums (1:34) and gives a brief overview of what makes Eno such a unique figure in music history. We briefly talk about Smug Brothers latest album “Disco Maroon“(7:03). The deep dives into the Eno albums kicks off with “Another Green World” (10:35), followed by “Here Come The Warm Jets” (16:51) “Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)” (27:01) and finally touching on some of Eno’s producing credits and “Before and After Science” (35:24).
These four Eno albums are also being re-released on 180 gram vinyl remastered for half-speed 45 RPM playback. For more info, click here.
