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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Billie Holiday

Lady Love
United Artists (Japan), Early 50s. Used
Rare live work from Billie Holiday – mostly from the early 50s, but not issued until a few years after her death – in a well-done package from United Artists! The tunes were mostly recorded under the supervision of Leonard Feather – and come from two different German tour dates ... CD
Jazz Unlimited (Sweden), 1940/1941. Used
Tracks include "I Hear Music", "I'm All For You", "Let's Do It", "Romance In The Dark", "St. Louis Blues", and "Georgia On My Mind" – with lots of alternate takes. CD
Verve, Late 40s/1950s. Used 10 CDs
Amazing stuff – a really incredible dip into the life, mind, and music of Billie Holiday – with some rare studio banter that's almost as compelling as her famous recordings for Verve! Amazing package, too – a real standard-setter for CDs when it came out! CD

Billie Holiday

Body & Soul
Verve, 1957. Used
Late work from the great Billie Holiday – the kind of mature set that made Verve Records such a perfect home for the singer in the 50s! Where other labels might have pushed too much to try to get Billie into more commercial, or more straightforward modes – Verve just relaxes into the ... CD
Commodore, Late 40s. Used
A full CD that compiles Billie's famous sides for the Commodore label in New York – recorded between 1939 and 1944, with accompaniment by the Eddy Heywood group and/or orchestra. Titles include "Strange Fruit" (the original 1939 version), "How Am I To Know", "Fine ... CD

Billie Holiday

Lady Sings the Blues
Verve, 1956. Used
Possibly one of the most essential Billie Holiday albums for Verve – a set that carries the same title as her famous autobiography, and which also features many key numbers from her songbook at the time! The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind ... CD
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1955. Used
A velvet mood, but one with a bit of an edge – as you might expect from Billie Holiday in the 50s, hardly the stuff of a too-soft vocal date! The album's got Holiday working in wonderful small combo mode – getting some key Verve backup from players who include Sweets Edison on trumept, ... CD
Classics (France), Late 20s/1930s/Early 40s. Used
Early material – a run of late 20s singles for Okeh, plus early 40s work for Decca, Savoy, and Philo – with work from Pete Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Doggett, Wild Bill Moore, and Lonnie Johnson. CD

... CD

Cassandra Wilson

Belly Of The Sun
Blue Note, 2002. Used
A laidback, and almost rootsy effort from Cassandra Wilson – recorded with small combo backing, and still handled in the sweetly swinging style of her other Blue Note work – but also with some folksy touches that create a more intimate feel on the record than you might think. Of course ... CD
