Crucial Brian Eno work reissued on double vinyl for the first time. Discreet Music was originally released in 1975 and marked a significant stylistic shift toward ambient music. Compared to the more traditional rock aesthetic of his previous efforts (Here Come The Warm Jets, Taking Tiger Mountain, and Another Green World), here Eno utilized a minimalist set up of synthesizer and tape delay to create the striking title track that would influence many works to come. The B-side suite "Three Variations on the Canon in D Major" was actually performed by the Cockpit Ensemble lead by fellow Obscure label alum Gavin Bryers. This limited edition 2018 reissue plays at 45RPM, and features half speed mastering done at the world-renowned Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell for the best possible sound quality. Comes pressed on heavyweight double 180 gram vinyl, complete with gatefold sleeve and printed mastering certificate.
