CD

The title sounds like some schlocky 80s thriller, but the set's a massive collection of tracks from some of the greatest years of house music – that late 80s explosion of the acid scene in Chicago, which really led to the global circulation of house sounds at so many different levels! This 5CD package does a great job of tracking the growth and evolution of the music during the late 80s and early 90s – with strong roots in the Chicago scene, then a move to show the range of approaches that broke big on the New York scene as well. The set's thankfully free of the trashy acid house that hit the charts in Europe – and really mostly features better underground work from the indie labels – a total of 58 tracks that includes work from Marshell Jefferson, Liz Torres, Rickster, Mario Reyes, Romance, Paris Brightledge, Master C&J, Steve Poindexter, Nexus 6, Frankie Knuckles, House People, Blake Baxter, Bobby Konders, Joe Smooth, Sterling Voic, Chip E, Mark Imperial, and many others. 5CDs, a special book, and full 12" mixes throughout!  © 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.
