On My iPod This Weekend

My Life In The Bush of Ghosts (Sire Records, 1981)
Brian Eno and David Byrne

The 2006 reissue has extended versions of some songs, several additional tracks and a booklet of interesting background and production notes. What it is missing is Peter Saville's striking, evocative original artwork (above). Pity. While I admittedly bought all things Eno often without so much as an advance listen, Peter Saville's album art probably closed the deal for me as much as anything else.
