Reissued 2009, originally released 1981
Now approaching it's 30th anniversary, Brian Eno and David Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts appears downright visionary. With it's "found" vocals, cut-and-paste arrangements, funked-up rhythms and embrace of influences from all around the globe, the duo's controversial work anticipated the creative cross-pollination and technological innovation of contemporary electronic dance music, world music, hip hop and alternative rock. This updated edition includes several tracks that had been considered for but never made it to the original LP and a smart, informative historical /critical essay by author-musicologist-recording artist David Toop. Also featured are various drum, vocal and ambient multitracks on Side 4.
