Obscure Records was a British record label created and curated by Brian Eno with the specific purpose of publishing a series of ten albums that traced the path of ambient music’s birth. The label has been active from 1975 to 1978 issuing works from artists such as Harold Budd, Michael Nyman, David Toop and the seminal Discreet Music album by Brian Eno himself. Most have detailed liner notes on their back covers, analyzing the compositions and providing a biography of the artist, in a format that is typical of classical music albums, and as a matter of fact much of the material can be regarded as 20th century contemporary music. The episode features: Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Harold Budd, John Cage, David Toop, Michael Nyman, Gavin Bryars, John Adams, Max Eastley and Brian Eno. Episode 56
