Budd’s 1988 album ‘The White Arcades’ is a very good example of ambient music. This album finds Budd recording a set of lovely melodies guaranteed to send you to dreamland.

The electronics here are more overt compared to his collaboration with Eno and Lenois on ‘The Pearl’ (1984). ‘The White Arcades’ retains the same relaxing atmosphere, but is ultimately not as versatile as ‘The Pearl’ (1984).

Reissued in 2005 with new artwork.

This is my first post. This blog will be a great blog. Well, that may or may not happen. I expect it will consist of posts exclusively dealing with movies and music.
