Brian Eno’s Obscure Records (1975-78)

Brian Eno Discrete MusicHere’s a great find, streaming audio of Brian Eno’s Obscure Records. There’s some titles from this series that have never been issued on CD or only in limited edition. I’m thrilled to finally be able to hear  Machine Music and Irma. I have a scratchy copy of Voices and Instruments, but I’m afraid to play it. Back in the day, I purchased a copy of Ensemble Pieces – Christopher Hobbs, John Adams, Gavin Bryars and I’m glad I did.

These titles need a box set reissue or at least all the titles should be in print.
