    Do the Strand hooked me. A mind-blowing song from one of the greatest groups of the '70s, who made eight strong albums (very good quality control).

    One of the many marvels, on their first two albums, is Eno's brave originality. All the other early adopters (Townshend, Wonder et al.) were playing the synthesizer like a modern-sounding organ; Eno set off for outer space, in search of brand new noises that had nothing to do with '70s pop.

      I wonder what would have happens had they been able to resolve their differences. Apparently the ending of In Every Home A Heartache involves one of Eno's tape-deck experiments.

      I'm glad you came in tonight!

        They were just one Brian too many. Ferry couldn't abide Eno upstaging him (you've seen the outfits, right?).

        My favorite Bowie LP is Low. He spent the whole decade a year in front of all his competition (as the Beatles had in the '60s), but on Low Bowie, Visconti and Eno exploded in so much sonic invention that they leaped right into the '80s.
