America is waiting
Back to the heady days of the early eighties. 1981 to be precise and the Brian Eno/David Byrne project My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. The record starts with these prophetic words: America is waiting for a Message of some sort....(911 answered all that)
Soon the remastered disc will hit the shelves. Note the changes in artwork that reflect the 25 years of distance between the original and the new.
THE NEW COVER
THE ORIGINAL LP COVER FROM 1981
One track will be missing from the newly remastered disc. This track appeared on some the first vinyl copies of the LP but was later removed because it sampled parts of the Qu'ran. Enjoy your listen here: QU'RAN
UPDATE (25/3): CHECK THE NEW WEBSITE
And obscure fact of the day: the first book currently acknowledged to be written in the early slave creole that was later to develop into Afrikaans was in fact the Qu'ran, a copy from around 1899.
