BRIAN ENO TO REISSUE FOUR 1990S ALBUMS WITH UNRELEASED RECORDINGS
On December 2, All Saints Records will reissue four albums Brian Eno released in the 1990s. Nerve Net (1992), The Shutov Assembly (1992), Neroli (1993), and The Drop (1997) will each come with a bonus disc featuring previously unreleased material.
Nerve Net comes packaged with My Squelchy Life, a "lost" album intended for a 1991 release. Shutov comes with seven unreleased recordings made in the same period as the album's sessions. Neroli comes with New Space Music - an hour-long piece of ambient drone music. The Drop comes with nine tracks recorded during the same period - they were previously only available at Eno's 2006 exhibit in Japan of 77 Million Paintings.
All of them also come with sixteen-page booklets featuring notes from Eno plus images.
