My Beginnings of Brian Eno

In 1977, while I was a junior at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, three of my new friends introduced me to the music of Brian Eno, on the LP's Here Come the Warm Jets & Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy, from 1973 & 1974. What I heard changed my musical life that day, & I have never ceased to consider Eno one of the very special wizard-geniuses of song & music. Listen to these two ridiculously amazing pieces: "Baby's on Fire" from his first solo album, Warm Jets, recorded shortly after he parted company with Brian Ferry & Roxy Music; "Golden Hours" from his third solo effort, 1975's Another Green World. (The guitar solos on both are played by Robert Fripp.)
