1LP Coke Bottle Green Coloured Vinyl + Eco Packaging


1LP Coloured Vinyl Edition of Brian Eno’s ‘The Ship’ in eco-packaging – Newly remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road – celebrating Eno’s first-ever solo tour, ‘Ships across Europe’, joined by Baltic Sea Philharmonic conducted by Kristjan Järvi in October 2023.

 “The Ship is a great, unexpected record. The title track and “Fickle Sun (i)” on their own and as a connected piece of music are marvelous accomplishments, distinctive in Eno’s catalog. And “I’m Set Free” immediately ranks among the most perfect-sounding pop songs Eno has ever had a hand in making.” – Pitchfork

“The music of “The Ship” is tolling and elegiac, while “Fickle Sun,” with lyrics about the “dismal work” of a soldier’s life, is in constant metamorphosis. Electronic sounds melt into orchestral upheavals and guitar distortion; voices, natural and synthetic, loom from all directions.” – The New York Times 

“The Ship is the work of someone who fully believes in the power of art as an empathic tool, as a means to invoke a particular viewpoint, an unconsidered perspective.” – The Quietus

“sits somewhere between the chilly calm of Music for Airports and the eerie evocations of the Suffolk landscape found on 1982’s On Land” – The Guardian
