Fripp & Eno - No Pussyfooting (1973)

Very early ambient/drone album - not
drone as it is today, there is no SunnO)))
heaviness but nevertheless there is a
quiet menace amongst the atmospherics.

Eno operates two tape decks that are
looping endlessly over each other while
Fripp improvises guitar solos - some
which are looped and some that drift
in and out.

The drones are ever shifting, with textured
layers of sound.

I have heard this called background music but
this deserves to be listened to as a record in
all its glory.

There is a interesting article about the recording
of this Here
