Format: cd
Artist: Brian Eno
CatNo: WAST024CD
Deluxe double CD reissue of Eno's underrated 'Space Jazz' album from 1997.
 
The Drop was intended not only as a new area for his sonic explorations but as an entirely new style of 'Drop' music. 
 
Described by Eno as an interpretation of jazz from an alien perspective, The Drop also integrates Eno's interests in the melodic yet percussive basslines of Fela Kuti and the labyrinthine melodies of The Mahavishnu Orchestra. 
 
The second disc includes 9 rarely heard bonus tracks from the same period as The Drop, previously only available as limited edition of 1000 sold at an exhibition of Brian Eno's 77 Million Paintings at La Floret in Japan in 2006, the original issue of which has since become a collector's item amongst Eno fans.
 
Contains 16 page booklet compiling photos, images and writing by Eno.
