Brian Eno

Before And After Science: Half Speed Master

UMC / Virgin EMI

Released: 4th August 2017

Brian Eno's completely excellent Before And After Science, is generally regarded as one of the most important titles in his fabulous discography.

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. The album contains an Obi, Download Voucher and Abbey Road Half Speed Master certificate.
