Does this contain the lithographs by Peter Schmidt that came with the original album? This is the only one of the reissues I didn't pick up because I already have the original vinyl, but it is missing the lithographs. I'll consider buying this if it contains them. The other reissues had nothing but the mastering certificate and download code.

Regarding this new Abbey Road master, there's a flaw on Side Three during the song "Here He Comes" where, at the end of the third chorus, the audio shifts slightly over to the right channel for a few seconds before returning back to its balanced state. This flaw is not in the lossless .wav files that came as a download code with the record.

Just my copy, or... ?

EDIT: So, it turns out this flaw (and some others since discovered) are part of the deterioration of the master tapes used for these Abbey Road reissues, 13 years removed from the 2004 DSD reissues on CD. A bit of a shame, but honestly, for those of you (like me) who have never owned the original pressings of the Eno quadrilogy and were hoping to have brand new copies for themselves that sound just as good, if not better, than the originals, you're better off buying these while they're still affordable instead of purchasing used & near-expensive vintage pressings.

Also, I suspect the download codes for these albums contain lossless .wav files of the 2004 DSD issues, because they don't contain the same aural drops these reissues do. Docked one star for Before and After Science having the most master-tape dropouts of the quadrilogy reissues, and the fact that my copy of Disc 2 was dirty as hell on both sides. Vastly reduced the pops, hiss and clicks with a thorough cleaning, but some little bits remain. Good enough for me.

I haven't heard these new 45rpm pressings yet...but am I the only one who would prefer a simple, single disc 33rpm repress? First of all I hate having to flip after 2 or 3 songs, and they're also too expensive. I may be just getting old and crotchety but....

Produced by Eno and Rhett Davies, over 100 tracks were written for Before And After Science with only 10 making the album's final cut. The musical styles featured range from energetic and jagged to more languid and ethereal. The album marks Eno's last foray into rock music in the '70s as a solo artist, with all his remaining records of the decade showcasing more of his ambient music, which was hinted at on the second half of Before And After Science. Unlike Eno's previous albums, which were recorded in a very short time, Before and after Science was two years in the making. During this two-year period, Eno was busy working on his solo ambient albums Music For Films and Discreet Music as well as Bowie's Heroes and Low.
On Before and After Science, Eno worked with Fred Frith, Jaki Liebezeit of Can, Cluster, Dave Mattacks of Fairport Convention, Andy Fraser of Free, Percy Jones, Phil Collins, Robert Fripp, Paul Rudolph of Hawkwind, Bill MacCormick and Phil Manzanera (then of Quiet Sun) and Robert Wyatt, who went under the pseudonym of Shirley Williams.

People crap on the Editions EG pressings of Eno's albums to much. They sound fantastic and are a much cheaper way to get these records in great quality with much less investment.

This release cannot be from 1994. I bought one copy in Holland which resembles the pictures and the information of this release in every detail: I bought it in 1989.

The best Eno Album by the way, IMHO.

There is a legitimate Japanse release on Polydor, MPF 1131, that was released in ca. 1977, and is NOT a bootleg. I own a copy, and it shows proper aging for a record from the late 1970s. Someone needs to create two entries for this.
