BRIAN ENO: FILM MUSIC 1976-2020
When Brian Eno crafted Music For Films in 1978, he created soundtracks for movies that only existed in his imagination. But for the last fifty-plus years, he's made music for actual movies as well, starting with Malcolm Le Grice's auteur short Berlin Horse. This new compilation is a fine highlight reel of his work on celluloid that includes Prophecy Theme from David Lynch's Dune, Late Evening In Jersey from Michael Mann's Heat, Under from Ralph Bakshi's Cool World and an understated cover of William Bell's soul classic You Don't Miss Your Water, which was featured on the soundtrack to Jonathan Demme's Married To The Mob. BBC crime show fans will recognize the theme to the East London series Top Boy, while anyone who endured the grossness of Renton's dip into a dirty toilet in Trainspotting can certainly never forget Deep Blue Day.
