Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this half-speed master edition which plays at 45rpm for optimum sound quality. High-resolution mastering from the best-known sources and half-speed cutting were supervised by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. This gatefold sleeve contains an Obi and Abbey Road Half Speed Master certificate. Originally released on the Polydor label in December 1977, Before and After Science continued to break new ground with sonic experimentation and bold forays into ambient music. Musical contributors include Phil Collins and Percy Jones from Brand X, Jaki Liebezeit from Can, Moebius & Roedelius from Cluster / Harmonia and Robert Wyatt. It features 10 songs including the single ‘Kings Lead Hat’, which is generally accepted to be Brian’s homage to then-emerging Talking Heads.
