Biography

“In the early seventies I found myself preferring film soundtracks to most other types of records. What drew me to them was their sensuality and unfinished-ness - in the absence of the film they invited you, the listener, to complete them in your mind. If you hadn't even seen the film, the music remained evocative - like the lingering perfume of somebody who's just left a room ... Read more in Amazon's Brian Eno Store

Format: Audio CD
Eno's first song album after leaving Roxy Music and emphatically establishes his far-sighted talent that was barely hinted at within the confines of Ferry's band. There is glam, there is 50's rock and roll, pre-punk punk, art rock, avant garde all mixed together in a surreal, alien brew.
There is a simplicity and almost amateurish wilfulness about this album, though there is no denying the sophistication of the material, arrangements and playing. Eno is at his playful, naughty best here. That even stretches to the album title, the meaning of which is reflected in one of the items shown on the album cover!
Best here is "Baby's On Fire" where Fripp produces one of his most blistering solos. "Driving Me Backwards" is darkly menacing. "Cindy Tells Me" is a gorgeous pop song which ends too soon. This album is what Roxy Music would have sounded like if helmed by Eno. All members bar Ferry appear and Eno even does a good impersonation of the crooner on "Dead Finks Don't Talk"!
A couple of comments about these re-issues. They are minimally packaged in digipaks which are housed in transparent plastic slip cases. These are not remasters as such, but new transfers taken from the original master tapes using the new Direct Stream Digital (DSD) format. This is state of the art as regards mastering onto compact disc. They have been transferred by Simon Heyworth who is one of the best in the business. He has made statements about the remastering of these recordings. Why change something that was done right originally! Eno was happy with the original mastering so what is needed is just the best transfer onto compact disc that is currently feasible. Whereas the original CD's sounded flat and thin, these transfers are much livelier and offer a fuller, more detailed sound.

There are several great reasons why I love Brian Eno's debut LP. It makes a change from the Roxy Music albums I've listened to as well as showcasing his remarkable talent for playing snake guitar, the synth, and treating the other instruments, and, oh yes!, "Baby's On Fire".
Of all the versions that were recorded by Eno, this one stands out from the pack. Simon King's brill drumming, Paul Rudolph on guitar, and bass, Screetching quality guitar from Bob Fripp, and John Wetton on second bass guitar. I think Brian Eno done the right thing by quitting Roxy Music in July 1973.
Most of the musicians who played on this album, also played on "Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy", "Another Green World", and "Before And After Science", which contained the wonderful, "Backwater", and "King's Lead Hat".

From the moment Roxy Music's eponymous debut album hit the stands up to the release of Achtung Baby by U2 at the start of the 90s, Eno's remarkable creativity in the studio subtly guided the development of pop and rock music without ever overpowering it. Here Come The Warm Jets was his debut solo album after splitting from Roxy Music when he fell out with Bryan Ferry. It was Roxy Music's loss artistically for, as they progressed to the land of the lounge lizard, Eno set off on an esoteric and ground-breaking journey through the edges of pop and rock music.
Here Come The Warm Jets and his next album, Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy, are both his most straight ahead records and the only albums he made without instrumental tracks on them. Eno's debut doesn't stray as far from his glam roots as subsequent albums do, and yet it still takes standard pop into a strange new world. Melodically, most of the songs on the album are very simple, almost nursery rhyme like in places, and yet two facets mean most of them stand up to repeated listening and remain compelling no matter how often you hear them.
First, Eno's ability to structure a song and not to overplay it is second to none. The excellent On Some Faraway Beach is the prime example of this - for nearly three minutes keyboards and synths build across each other and, just as it reaches a point where you feel the track has fulfilled itself, the vocal begins - and you are immediately transfixed again. It's present again on the switch between Some of Them are Old and the title track, where the strange treated percussion draws you in completely and - at exactly the point you accept it will continue ad infinitum now - the harsh electronic keyboards of the final track begin.

I first bought this vinyl lp as it was released way back when and was, at the time, blown away with it. It is probably the ultimate glamrock record in a most understated way. It could even be one of those best ever recordings that we hear about every now and then but with which we rarely agree. This is a true statement of art.

For those who disagree, take a listen to Baby's On Fire and then watch the film Velvet Goldmine. Take a listen to Blank Frank on a powerful Hi-Fi with the volume cranked right up. I dare you to relive the lipstick and fur.

Creative tension is good, but more than one leader in a band never works for long and after two groundbreaking albums with Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry and Eno parted company. After a couple of singles (which would have made nice bonus tracks), Eno recorded his dazzling solo album in September 1973. Bowie-esque in places, primal or avant-garde in others, it includes Baby's On Fire, the first song he ever wrote, and Cindy Tells Me, with its Roxy-like lines about Hotpoints left to rust in kitchenettes. There is considerable camp humour, too, as when he exclaims, "oh, cheeky cheeky, oh, naughty sneaky" (Dead Finks Don't Talk).

Some have said that since the rest of Roxy Music (apart from Ferry) were employed as session men, the album gives a glimpse of what Roxy Music would have sounded like had Eno won the ego wars. I don't think this is true though, partly because the methodology is different when recording a solo album, and secondly because no more than a couple of members from the group play on any one track. Phil Manzanera adds distinctive guitar to 3 tracks, but Robert Fripp, Paul Rudolph and Chris Spedding contribute to the rest. All the sound is treated by Eno in his inimitable way. With hindsight, the multi-layered instrumental sections with their gamelan interludes and subtly-changing atmospherics can be seen as early indications of the paths he was to follow, though none of that was apparent at the time
