Genius - genius - genius. We all need to experience that from time to time. Perhaps today? From 1974!
One of the greatest songs from one of the greatest albums by many of the greatest musicians ever. Just astounding! And this is actually an Eno video.
What do you think is the most unusual instrument played in this song?
Without question, if I was to be stranded on a deserted island with the catalog of music written, performed or produced by just one artist, it would be Brian Eno.
Given the chance
Unlikely I'll be remembered
Cast up on a plateau
On Some Faraway Beach... followed on Here Come The Warm Jets by Blank Frank, which rocks
Best for last... ?... Brian Eno - more prophecy from the 1970s - Dead Finks Don't Talk, From Here Come The Warm Jets
Embedded and linked is a YouTube video produced around the Eno song, not an Eno video but a private production, adding an interesting current reality...
Enjoy this video, and check out anything by Brian Eno - pure genius!
This song was my Song of the Day March 22, 2009...
The Lion Sleeps Tonight...
