Ok, this is unrelated to the most recent posts and only vaguely related to the pre-Xmas thread about bands we used to love/hate and how that can all change over time and with accumulated wisdom.
I got an iPod for Xmas and as an aside to all of you culture vulture geeks; where's yours? It is the ultimate classifying and organizing implement. With a little time and effort you have a serious music library at hand at all times and you get to re-organize bands, artists, songs, compilations, and playlists endlessly. Oh what fun.
So I'm looking to consolidate my Brian Eno music on the iPod and I only have the Fripp and Eno "No Pussyfooting" and the Eno Byrne "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" on cassette. My diminutive LP collection was abandoned in Chicago those many years ago. I decide to download from iTunes for the convenience factor but I can't find "No Pussyfooting". I start looking around for it and find it nowhere. Out of print? I find it listed on Amazon; used, selling for $35 to $99. Used, baby.
The first time I heard "No Pussyfooting" was in Chicago. My first social contact in my Film Tech I class invited me to his apartment and between Old Gold Filters we smoked little hand rolled mind-altering cigarettes. I guess it could have been the drugs but I still remember feeling as if the Universe had shifted and exposed a brand new dimension to us. I could not have foreseen that 20 and 30 minute long "songs" called "Heavenly Music Corporation” and "Swastika Girls" would be considered collectible 30 years hence. All that early Eno stuff still grabs me as I guess it grabbed a host of artists and especially musicians since they all started hiring Eno to produce.
Anyways, do any of you music aficionados have the inside dope on plans to reissue "No Pussyfooting"?
I'll be busy with the cassette machine for a while...............
