Is anyone else watching Eno night on BBC 4 - I'd forgotten how much the man had done.

Yes I had an Eno and then Roxy Music repeat, feast last night
Roxy Music featured large in my school days...and still a favourite.
Eno speaking on the arena programme was very good.

Eno has without doubt had a brilliant career. Interesting that he thought the third Roxy album (the first after he left), Stranded, to be their best. I think I agree. "A Song For Europe" & "Mother Of Pearl", as a pair, are probably the bands finest moment. I'm currently reminding myself of what a great band Roxy where by listening to the first 5 albums again this morning. Whilst I have a soft spot for some of the later work - and there were still occasional flashes of brilliance - those first five records really are tremendous.

Anyway back to Eno, just a glance through his catalogue of achievements is frankly staggering - he has had a huge impact on modern music in so many ways - as artist, writer, collaborator and producer. He has the rare talent of making experimental electronic music that is inclusive and warm, and the even rarer talent of applying those techniques to popular music forms and making that music both better and even more popular.
