Brian Eno ‎– Before And After Science (1977) - New Vinyl 2017 Virgin EMI Gatefold 2LP EU Reissue (Half-Speed Apple Road Studios Remaster) with Download - Electronic / Art Rock / Ambient


Originally released on the Polydor label in December 1977, 'Before and After Science' continued to break new ground with sonic experimentation and bold forays into ambient music. Musical contributors include Phil Collins and Percy Jones from Brand X, Jaki Liebezeit from Can, Moebius & Roedelius from Cluster / Harmonia and Robert Wyatt. It features 10 songs including the single 'Kings Lead Hat', which is generally accepted to be Brian's homage to then-emerging Talking Heads.

This new gatefold 2LP vinyl edition of 'Before And After Science' is presented over two 180GM discs which play at 45rpm for optimum sound quality. High resolution mastering from the best known sources and half-speed cutting were supervised by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. Each album contains an Obi, Download Voucher and Abbey Road Half Speed Master certificate.
