Evening Star is the second studio album by British musicians Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. It was recorded from 1974 to 1975 and released in December 1975. This album's recording and the preceding seven show European tour by the duo marked Fripp's first output after disbanding King Crimson and his last before temporarily retiring from music (at the time thought to be permanently) to study at the International Academy for Continuous Education in Sherborne House.
A CD-only expansion of the 1986 compilation More Blank Than Frank, Desert Island Selection is Brian Eno's handpicked summation of his first few albums, now thought of as his pre-ambient pop phase. It's actually not a bad selection at all, and Eno seems to have taken care to choose and sequence the songs so that the whole thing hangs together
More Blank Than Frank compiles highlights from Eno's legendary albums Here Come the Warm Jets, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy), Another Green World and Before and After Science.
The "More Blank Than Frank" was the title given to the vinyl LP release, and "Desert Island Selection" was the name used for the CD version. The album was a compilation of many of Eno's earlier solo works, ranging from 1973's Here Come the Warm Jets to 1978's Music for Airports. The LP release contained a wider range of tunes, including a couple of darker and rock-ier songs ("The Great Pretender" and "King's Lead Hat") from.
