Ecotopia

CD (Item 587538) ECM, 1987 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A sound that we can only describe as Oregon – not the state, but the group – heard here in their unique 80s blend of acoustic and electric styles! There's a compelling blend of organic elements and more abstracted moments going on here – instrumentation that's folded into itself via ECM production, with a resulting sound that's sparklingly unique – and never in any of the too-commercial modes you might find from other sessions like this in the 80s. Players include Trilok Gurtu on tabla and percussion; Ralph Towner on guitars, pianos, and synth; Glen Moore on bass; and Paul McCandless on oboe, English Horn, soprano sax, and "wind driven synthesizers" – which sound mighty cool! Titles include "Twice Around The Sun", "Innocente", "WBAI", "Ecotopia", and "Leather Cats".  © 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.
