Well, gee. Eno has stated that the earliest (?) tape loop Reich piece
was a major inspiration. It's just been re-released on
Elektra/Nonesuch 9 79169-2, "Early Works". Be cautioned that they're
not his most listenable pieces.
Probably my favorite Reich things are Music for 18 Musicians (ECM
1129) and Different Trains/Electric Counterpoint (Elektra 9 79176-2).
Terry Riley is also highly recommended. I can't stand Glass: I feel
that all his pieces sound the same. That's probably why he's the most
popular of the "minimalists".

I have a recording, which I made myself, of Eno discussing "It's Gonna
Rain", and explaining that that's where he got the idea, which was
passed on to Fripp.
