Brian Eno And David Byrne - My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts mp3 album
My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is the first album by Brian Eno and David Byrne, released in February 1981. It integrates sampled vocals and found sounds, African and Middle Eastern rhythms, and electronic music techniques. It was recorded prior to Eno and Byrne's work on Talking Heads' album Remain in Light (1980), but sample clearance delayed its release by several months.

As David Byrne describes in his liner notes, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts placed its bets on serendipity: "It is assumed that I write lyrics (and the accompanying music) for songs because I have something I need to 'express. I find that more often, on the contrary, it is the music and the lyric that trigger the emotion within me rather than the other way around . An album that's built on serendipity- on Brian Eno fooling around with a new type of drum machine, on syncing the hook in a tape loop to a chorus, on finding the right horrors on the radio- can't score 100%. But even if you cut it some slack, crucial parts of the album don't sound as intriguing today as they once did- namely, all of the voices.
Recorded by Eno and Byrne in between their work on Talking Heads projects, the album integrates sampled vocals and found sounds, African and Middle Eastern rhythms, and electronic music techniques. The album has since been called a "pioneering work for countless styles connected to electronics, ambience and Third World music". The Jezebel Spirit" is the fourth song from the 1981 album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts by David Byrne and Brian Eno. It was released as a single the same year. The song includes a "found sound"-an exorcism performed by an anonymous exorcist-over Afrobeat music similar to that Byrne and Eno had used in the Talking Heads album Remain in Light.
Bush of Ghosts as the 21st best album of the 1980s, while Slant Magazine listed the album at No. 83 on its list of the "Best Albums of 1980s". 1 Recording and production. "David Byrne and Brian Eno: My Life in the Bush of Ghosts". Q (238): 137. May 2006. Uncut (107): 119. April 2006.

NotesUnofficial release with the original mixes of all tracks and featuring the Kathryn Kuhlman voice samples on track 2 intact. The official release was delayed because Kuhlman's estate sued to have her voice removed and won. This release claims to be "First Edition" as well as "Promotional Copy" which is patently absurd as it's clearly a bootleg. The sound quality is quite good, however.
