Includes digital copy (autorip)

The third studio album by the English musician. Originally released in September 1975, the album produced by Brian Eno and Rhett Davies featured contributions from several guest musicians including Robert Fripp, Phil Collins and John Cale. The album marked a transition from the rock-based music of Enos' previous releases towards the minimalist sensibility of his late 70's ambient work.

Not my cup of tea personally, but I do respect his talents, especially with early Roxy Music. Amazing price for 180 vinyl though. Heat.
Why bother when you can buy the audio cd from £1.69 + £1.26 delivery?
Unlike a 'vinyl' played even once, a used cd will play as original

Haha. .Is that why beards are popular? They're part of a retro trend? But men didn't have beards then, they had long moustaches IIRC. Anyway they get what they deserve
Would have bought this if I hadn't got it already (paid around £15), so a great price...

Why buy the CD when you can get bit-perfect masters from Tidal?

I've bought a few vinyl releases lately, cos it sounds better.

The original masters would have been analogue tape, so bit perfect masters has no meaning here.

And I don't quite understand the second bit (excuse the pun) "it sounds better" than what ?

I collect most formats of music, as do many people. Cassettes, Vinyl, CDs and even a few 8-tracks (which are bloody awful).

Lots of stuff on vinyl isn't available digitally and actually, some digital versions of albums use different final mixes more suited to the format.

There are lots of pros and cons to all formats

I've never believed the "Vinyl sounds better" line but it's fine to collect and listen to different formats of music. There shouldn't be any gate keeping!

Here's the weird thing.

Most vinyl since the 1980s has involved an A>D>A converter they had a digital delay. Most vinyl today is cut from digital masters. My vinyl deck preamp sends by Bluetooth to a DAC.

Still, there is something about the analogue transmission of sound through a diamond and cantileverand rotating platter of vinyl that sets it apart!

To my ears anyway. And I appreciate this can be considered "effect processing" in a sense, and tehcnically on paper worse sound fidelity, but.. The euphonic effects of vinyl makes music much more enticing and alive, to equivalent digital masters which sound dead in comparison... it's something mysterious that goes beyond simple RIAA EQ curves.

Also I think having to lift the stylus at the end of a record is good exercise.
@groakybaby Not my favourite Eno album, but inspired a hop to "On Land" at £12.94 which I gripped!

I hope not
That just introduces another layer of distortion and noise. High fidelity was years ago defined as lofty faihfulness. The closest approach to the original sound. That's still what you should be trying to achieve. There should be nothing between you and the performers. Recording artists and their companies are of course anxious to provide their performances in as many different ways as possible
The digital CD was (I believe) a mistake, I think. It was too near to the original. Could be playing on simple equipment. Did not wear out. A revelation to those who had for years been struggling with records to produce reasonably undistorted sound with low rumble, hiss and clicks and inner grove distortion.
Surprising really when they had managed to muddy the waters well (for the industries) with the standards for analogue video domestic formats for years.
When in the uk, a digital standard was sought for radio, it was down graded and in practice actually worse then fm radio. But a good thing for the performace industries. Likewise the lower standard of mp3 and 4.
So go on, dance to their tune
