I Took Up The Runes

CD (Item 587417) ECM, 1990 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Evocative work from Jan Garbarek – a wonderful progression of modes he first began for ECM many years before, stretched out nicely in this more recent session. The album's significant in featuring some early work from Bugge Wessltoft on synthesizer – playing here before his later fame on the Jazzland label, on a date that makes a great bridge between the groundbreaking European forces of that label, and ECM. Other musicians include Rainer Bruninghaus on piano, Eberhard Weber on bass, Manu Katche on drums, and Nana Vasconcelos on percussion – and Ingor Antte Ailu Gaup sings just a bit on the record. Titles include "I Took Up The Runes", "Molde Canticle", "Buena Hora Buenos Vientos", "Rahkki Sruvvis", and "His Eyes Were Suns".  © 1996-2021, 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.
