Touched By The Hand Of Eno: 150 Tracks From 150 Brian Eno Recordings on Spotify

"Ambient pioneer, glam rocker, hit producer, multimedia artist, technological innovator, worldbeat proponent, and self-described non-musician -- over the course of his long, prolific, and immensely influential career, Brian Eno was all of these things and much, much more. Determining his creative pathways with the aid of a deck of instructional, tarot-like cards called Oblique Strategies, Eno championed theory over practice, serendipity over forethought, and texture over craft; in the process, he forever altered the ways in which music is approached, composed, performed, and perceived, and everything from punk to techno to new age bears his unmistakable influence."  - AllMusic


This playlist features 150 tracks handpicked from 150 albums/EPs/singles that credit Eno as composer, instrumentalist, vocalist, mixing engineer or producer, sorted in chronological order.

Below is a list of albums included; titles are linked to articles in which details about Eno's involvement can be found. His contribution to the selected tracks are noted in the brackets.

  1. Wauw. a i'm gladly surprised. How did you do that? So many records and knowing all his contrubiations. This must be a hell of a job.

    But thank you very much. I'am a Eno fan since long time (first heard the Apollo album, man so fucking great. I did'nt know about then of all his other works. I only knew he was a member of Roxy Music.

    I'm surely gonna listen to this works: Radio Eno :-)

    Funny, i typed in Spotify search box "brain eno" and i get two songs witch are misspelled by the recordcompany.

    ThanXs again,
    René
