Live In Berlin

CD (Item 620803) West Wind (Germany), 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.60 5

One of our favorite recordings of the Art Ensemble from the end of the 70s – a beautiful live set recorded in Berlin from 1979, one that captures the group in an extremely lyrical mode! Tracks build slowly, with instrumentation added in bit by bit – stretching out the tunes in a style that's a bit more spiritual than usual for the group, and which makes for some wonderfully intimate moments. The double-length package is a 2CD set – and titles include the long tracks "As If It Were The Seasons", "Crushed", "Jackson In Your House", "Dreaming Of The Master", and "Odwalla". (Out of print. Does not include slipcase.)  © 1996-2015, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
