Once upon a time, there was a man from Suffolk who 'invented' ambient music and everyone said what a genius he was and bought his albums and the press and tv bowed down at his feet and the king gave him his daughter's hand in marriage (okay, I made the last bit up).
Menawhile, a thousand miles away, the real inventor spent his time honing his skills, working with some of the most inventive musicians around. And only a few people had heard of him, but those who did realised what an innovator he was. And the inventor's name was Florian Fricke, and he had more invention, skill and talent in his hands and chords than most have in a thousand lifetimes. And one day, things changed... if sense has a role to play in music.
Frankly, these two albums are the predecessors of 30 years of music. They lay down the rules that everyone follows today, and if Eno, Budd, Laraaji, Winston, Nelson and the entire crew of the Wyndham Hill Record label don't owe him their entire careers, I'll eat my hat.
In short - superb and indispensible.
