Durch Die Wuste

CD (Item 100636) Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1976/1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Masterful late 70s proggy grooves from Cluster's Hans-Joachim Roedelius – his first solo album, and wonderful, unpredictable journey in changing dynamics! Even the tunes with instrumentation that seems like standard rock materials of guitar, bass, drums and keyboards of wild textures coming from the keys, and echoey bits of sonic errata to give some otherworldly sounds, but have a gritty, grooving bottom end – and other tunes have a sparely haunting sound to them. Just great stuff, certainly necessary for Cluster, but worth the while of anyone with an ear for proggy soundscapes! Players include Jose Christo, Konrad Plank and Moebius. Titles include "Am Rockzipfel", "Dutrch Die Wuste", "Johannelust", "Glaubersalz", "Mr Livingstone I Suppose" and "Regenmacher".  © 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.
