Released in December 1975 it contains elements included on Eno’s seminal ambient album 'Discreet Music' also released in the same month. 'Discreet Music' was derived from loops that Eno created to accompany Robert Fripp’s guitar solos when the pair performed live, elements of which were also used on "Evening Star”. You can hear a short section of one of these loops the opening piece "Wind on Water.” The following title track features a Fripp solo that is regarded by fans as one of his most beautiful performances. "Evensong" and "Wind on Wind” formed the remainder of the album's first half. As if to balance the equation, the second side comprised a single piece "An Index of Metals". Running to almost 29 minutes it is almost the antithesis of the warm inviting music on the album's first half.
