Background: Released in 1973, No Pussyfooting was the first of several collaborations between ex-Roxy Music keyboard player Brian Eno and King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp.
The album didn’t chart anywhere, but was highly influential in the ambient/electronic niche.
At the same time Brian Eno was working on Here Come the Warm Jets, he was flexing his experimental muscle with this album of tape delay manipulation recorded with Robert Fripp. In a system later to be dubbed Frippertronics, Eno and Fripp set up two reel-to-reel tape decks that would allow audio elements to be added to a continuing tape loop, building up a dense layer of sound that slowly decayed as it turned around and around the deck’s playback head. Fripp later soloed on top of this. …Eno and Fripp later refined the system on Evening Star and Eno’s solo album Discreet Music. Fripp would take the system and base whole albums and live appearances around it (particularly Let the Power Fall). But it was here on (No Pussyfooting) where it all started.
