Monday's Long Song

In 1976 Brian Eno travelled to Forst in West Germany to collaborate with the Harmonia, the German supergroup that consisted of two members of Cluster, Hans Joachim Roedelius & Dieter Moebius and the guitarist from Neu! Michael Rother who had released two albums to limited sales. For 11 days in September Eno and the other three collaborated before he buggered off to work with David Bowie. The output of these sessions weren't released until 1997 as the tapes had been considered lost up until then. The album that was released Tracks and Traces is a mixed bag, the long contemplative piece, Sometime In Autumn being the pick of the bunch which was remixed by Shackleton and released on a 12" with an Appleblim and Komonasmuk remix of By The Riverside the other main track from the 1976 session.

I usually listen to Monday Long Songs in the morning with a coffee, but saved this one until the evening where I'm enjoying it with a glass of red. I made the right decision.
