Olympia 77

$14.99 ...

Astor Piazzolla — Olympia 77 ... CD 24.99

A live set from Argentine musical legend Astor Piazzolla – recorded in Paris, and with a vibe that really makes the music even more striking than some of his other fantastic records from the 70s! The group's a bit different – in that it's got a drummer, who brings an even bolder sense to the music than some of Piazzolla's drumless combos – and the tracks are nice and long, too, which also seems to inspire the guitar to take off on some freer flights too – almost as if the whole group is hitting a bit of jazz – or if not jazz, the kind of longform instrumental expressions that were bubbling up in Brazil in the generation of Hermeto Pascoal and Airto. There's also a bit of organ in the mix – and titles include "Zita", "Violentango", "Meditango", "Libertango", and "Adios Nonino".  © 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.
