BRIAN ENO: I'M SET FREE
When it comes to production, you couldn't reach further opposites of the spectrum than The Velvet Underground and Brian Eno. I'm Set Free is one of The Velvet Underground's most beautiful compositions, a yearning earnestness and relief tinged with resignation. That resignation is the magic ingredient, and it's not really here on Eno version. There's not much added here - the tonal lushness isn't really needed - but it is a nice reminder of the power of the VU original.
