Up for sale is a great Windham Hill album from 1981 featuring the extraordinary guitar-work and music of Alex De Grassi called 'Clockwork'. De Grassi is considered to be one the most virtuosic living guitarists. He performs solo concerts worldwide, holds various guitar workshops and master classes throughout the year, and performs with the de Mania Trio, alongside bassist Michael Manring and percussionist Christopher Garcia.
De Grassi's first album, Turning: Turning Back, was released by Windham Hill Records in 1978 ('Clockwork' was his 3rd album). Windham Hill Records was an independent record label that specialized in instrumental acoustic music. It was founded in 1976 by guitarist William Ackerman (another phenomenal musician!), De Grassi's cousin, and was popular in the 1980s and 1990s. It's now owned by Sony Music Entertainment, but hasn't released anything new since 2007, only re-issues and compilations.
I purchased this album back in 1982 and played it with loving care on a Bang & Olufsen Beogram 8002 linear tracking turntable with a moving coil cartridge. Sound quality is still sharp, as with most Windham Hill recordings. The vinyl is in "excellent" condition, still has it's original shine with a few barely visible scuffs (from a 1980's Discwasher) but no scratches & minimal wear. The anti-static sleeve is still in excellent condition while the outer sleeve is in NM (Near Mint) condition with no splits or ring wear, barely any wear on the spine & other edges and all 4 corners still fairly sharp.
