Editors’ Notes Brian Eno’s love for manipulating sound and creating "accidents" between musicians worked marvelously to his advantage on his solo debut. He gathered 16 seemingly incompatible artists (from bands like Roxy Music, Hawkwind, and King Crimson) and directed them with dancing moves and nonsensical lyrics to subliminally guide their playing. Songs like “Baby’s on Fire” and “Needles in the Camel’s Eye”—where brilliant ‘60s pop harmonies, surf guitars, and futuristic sounds blend—are glam-pop gold, sounding hugely catchy despite their improvisational, free-associative beginnings.
