Taking Tiger Mountain
At Amazon.uk it seems like a new remastered edition of Brian Eno´s "Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy") is released today, and even if I´m not sure this is a new edition, let´s have the album in Wyatt and Stuff´s classics series (we have waved it pretty high in the air in a previous post too). It´s not much to say really, but you have to have this fantastic album, and also three other Eno albums from the 1970s, where i works with people like Fred Frith, Robert Fripp, Phil Manzanera, John Cale and Robert Wyatt. Here is your shopping list:
"Here come the warm jets" (1973), "Taking Tiger Mountain" (1974), "Another Green World" (1975) and "Before and After Science" (1977).
