Brian Eno’s 13 Favourite Albums of All Time

Source: Far Out.

Brian Eno might not be a name who leaps to the forefront of the annals of music history, but it crops up more than most amid the back pages. As the star famously said himself: “My reputation is far bigger than my sales. I was talking to Lou Reed the other day, and he said that the first Velvet Underground record sold only 30,000 copies in its first five years.”

The former Roxy Music star humbly continued: “Yet, that was an enormously important record for so many people. I think everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band! So I console myself in thinking that some things generate their rewards in second-hand ways.”
