While the 1970s are often looked upon as ECM's glory days, every decade has more than enough to maintain its position as one of the most innovative and forward-thinking record labels in the history of jazz. Two parts, 46 songs in total, demonstrate the label's singular vision, in the context of tremendous stylistic breadth, during the 1980s. Once again, some tracks are from vinyl rips; here's hoping they'll see the light of day as CD someday soon!
