Midori Takada — Through The Looking Glass ... LP 24.99

A beautiful album of minimal, ambient sounds – a set that would be right at home in the world of Brian Eno's Obscure Music label – or maybe some of the chamber instrumental experiments of UK artists like Penguin Cafe Orchestra or Gavin Bryers! Like the former, there's an optimistic sensibility here – a mode that shows that instrumental experimentation need not always be atonal or non-melodic – and instead can wander through the sort of territory that a more lyrical painter or poet might take on paper, but with sound. Midori Takada composed and performed all the work herself – on instrumentation that mixes acoustic and electric, reed work and percussion, keyboards and more subtle sounds. The leadoff track is titled "Mr Henri Rousseau's Dream" – which, along with the cover, might well sum up the warmth of the record – and other titles include "Crossing", "Tromp L'Oeil", and "Catastrophe E".  © 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.
