Early solo Brian Eno material from 1975, originally issued through Eno’s legendary Obscure Records. Side A is the real Discreet Music, one of his very first self-defined ‘ambient’ works, recorded with an EMS Synthi AKS and tape loops (mmmm, yum). Side B involves messing around with Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major, with pleasing results. Virgin reissue.

For an artist that has helped shape the musical map since the 70's, and remained a sterling producer, and also has an album work rate to put most musicians to shame, it's truly surprising that Brian Eno, has so many absolutely essential albums to his name. One of the early masterpieces of ambient music, Eno's "Discreet Music" really defies description. Broken into two halves, the extended "Discreet Music" and "Three Variations on the Canon in D Major by Johann Pachelbel", the music is delicate, balanced, beautiful, and stirring.
