Re: OT: Brian Eno "coming soon on Warp"

lots of musicians are doing the special edition these days. Look at NIN and Radiohead, they both gave away their album, but then had special editions to purchase. This is their way of keeping their fans satisfied and making some money at the same time. And giving us an investment we can most likely later sell and get all our money out of it.

It's all in the way you look at it.

Since I am tuning in late, maybe I or someone else missed something here with this thread, but the pricey item is only for the special very limited collectors screen print edition which,
in the long history of various music releases, is certainly not unheard of. There is also a "standard" CD release of the new Eno album that is only $14.99 (+ S&H) and currently is
a "pre-order" item from Bleep.com, which I've already done, natch. :-)  There will also be a download available for purchase, as well. I'm looking *very forward* to hearing this...!

 Interesting track......................

but $99.99?

Brian Eno is becoming the Apple of electronic artists.

Expensive, prestigious, elitist music for upper middle class and wealthy people.

Save your money and invest in artists like Bola, Oval, Trente Moller or my next CD
or,   fuck it...................save your money and produce your own all original
electronic CD.

Brian Eno has been a constant source of inspiration to me throughout
my artistic life but this elitist pricing just makes me spiney.
