Selbstportrait – Wahre Liebe

CD (Item 100572) Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 2020 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

A beautiful contemporary album that follows the same spirit of the vintage Selbsportrait records by Roedelius – and one that uses the same sort of vintage instrumentation too – given that the master of spare musical space works here on Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, Roland and Korg keyboards! The songs are wonderful – lyrical in a subtle way, and with maybe a slight bit more variation than some of the Ambient work by Brian Eno – although still that similar balance between silence and sound, which is why Roedelius was such a great partner with Eno on a few projects back in the day. Selections vary in length from 36 seconds to 14 minutes – and titles include "Aus Weilter Ferne", "Nahwarme", "Ebenfalls", "Gerne", "Spiel Im Wind", "Geruhsam", and "Im Kreisel".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
