By This River

To say that musical egghead Brian Eno is a musical polymath would be a bit of an understatement. Throughout the course of more than four decades in the business, the former Roxy Music mastermind has explored genres as disparate as upfront glam-rock, abstract ambient, inventive worldbeat and studied electronica, and proved himself to be an unparalleled authority in every chosen field. In addition to his own singular works, Eno has also established his credentials as a producer par excellence, lending his unique and inimitable sense of musical sonics to landmark recordings like Devo's 'Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!', Talking Heads' 'Remain in Light', U2's 'The Joshua Tree' and 'Achtung Baby', and James's 'Laid'. Check out an example of Eno's expert musicianship and atmospheric production chops, the mood-evoking, pastoral-natured 'By This River', taken from Eno's acclaimed 1977 album 'Before and After Science'.
