Now approaching its 25th anniversary, Brian Eno and David Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts appears downright visionary. With its "found" vocals, cut-and-paste arrangements, funked-up rhythms and embrace of influences from all around the globe, the duo's controversial work anticipated the creative cross-pollination and technological innovation of contemporary electronic dance music, world music, hip hop and alternative rock. You can hear echoes of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts in the anthems Moby built around vintage vocal samples, in the outrageously exotic beats of Missy Elliot and Timbaland, in the Middle Eastern-accented chill-out tracks of Thievery Corporation or Bjork's otherworldly soundscapes.This updated edition includes several tracks that had been considered for but never made it to the original LP and a smart, informative historical/critical essay by author-musicologist-recording artist David Toop. Also featured on this enhanced CD is the Bruce Connor film for the track, "Mea Culpa." Back in 1980, Eno and Byrne were fomenting musical evolution, but wound up triggering a sonic revolution. With My Life inthe Bush of Ghosts they had stumbled onto the future.
