Fripp & Eno

The Equatorial Stars

200 Gram super heavyweight vinyl Music performed and composed by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno Brian Eno is usually credited with the claim that everyone who originally bought a Velvet Underground album subsequently formed a band It's no less valid to suggest that many of those involved in electronic music might not have been but for 'No Pussyfooting' and 'Evening Star' Indeed few contemporary albums can claim as much lasting influence as 'No Pussyfooting' by Fripp and Eno It's safe to say that for the vast majority of buyers at the time of its initial release in 1973 this was their first exposure to the small world of electronic music It's equally safe to say it wasn't their last The equipment used was by modern standards primitive The ideas expressed were by any standards enormous Many went on to have careers based on the possibilities suggested by the album Fripp and Eno to their eternal credit were too busy working as musicians to ever 'milk it' in that sense One further full album 'Evening Star' was issued in 1975 There were occasional collaborations but no further recordings under the Fripp and Eno banner until the emergence of 'The Equatorial Stars' in late 2004 as a limited edition release via the artists' websites followed by a full release in 2005 on CD However it was never issued on vinyl until now 'The Equatorial Stars' consists of a series of seven soundscapes The evident care taken in the construction and presentation of the sound world makes the totality of the work so convincing The textures and atmospheres forming the heart of each track manage to subtly change and alter while leaving ample space for Robert's guitar solos to emerge from the centre The album was Fripp and Eno's opportunity to redefine an area of music they helped to launch into the mainstream in the first instance It is also incidentally Robert Fripp's personal favourite of his many collaborations with Brian Eno
