Brain Eno is an English musician and record producer best known for his pioneering
work in ambient music. Eno has helped introduce unique conceptual approaches and
recording techniques to contemporary music. He was an early member of Roxy Music.
He also collaborated with artists such as Robert Fripp, Cluster, Harold Budd, David
Bowie, and David Byrne, and produced albums by artists including John Cale, Jon
Hassell, Laraaji, Talking Heads and Devo, and the No Wave compilation No New York.
Released in 1974, Taking of Tiger Mountain is the second solo album by English
musician Brian Eno by Island Records. Unlike his debut album Here Come the Warm
Jets, Eno's second album used a core band, including Phil Collins of Genesis, Andy
Mackay and Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, and Robert Wyatt of Soft Machine.
This pressing is part of the Abbey Road Studios Half Speed Mastering Series. A
certificate is included. Cutting a disc at half speed takes twice as long. Essentially, the
non-stressing of any component in the process means half-speed mastering is the most
accurate way to cut a record.
$400 or $700 for both.
