CD

Ms Hill's notorious double album follow up to the Miseducation Of. . .album – a pretty nice set of unvarnished, intimate performances that would have gone done a lot smoother in an earlier era! After the whirlwind success of her first solo album, Lauryn, either a) decided that the peak of the mainstream glittering pop palace is better left to people like Gwen Stefani, or b) went off the deep end into a world of inflated self-righteousness and Bono-esque ego, depending on who's sizing her work up. Who cares. The bottom line is that Unplugged 2.0 is really a pretty decent left turn that wouldn't have been such a puzzling choice back in the 70s era, when major label artists might put out 4 albums a year, and took chances here and there. As the entire output of such a revered artist for the entire half of a decade, it's a disappointment, but a perfectly listenable one. 22 tracks on 2CDs (including interludes): "Mr. Intentional", "Adam Lives In Theory", "I Find It Hard To Say (Rebel)", "Just Like Water", "Mystery Of Iniquity", "I Remember", "So Much Things To Say", "The Conquering Lion" and more.  © 1996-2020, 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.

Cypress Hill

Black Sunday
Ruffhouse/Columbia, 1993. Used
The second LP from Cypress Hill, and as far as we're concerned, the last good one. Muggs' beats get a bit darker on this album, but are still sharp enough to cut through even the thickest clouds of smoke. 14 tracks in all, including "I Wanna Get High", "I Ain't Goin' Out Like ... CD
Arista, 2002. Used
Cee-Lo Green gits up and gets out on his own – without the heavy burden of too many guest appearances – and the result may be the best album to come out of the Dirty South in quite a while! Cee-Lo's raspy, cotton-mouthed speak & sing style has always been one of the strongest ... CD

DJ Shadow

Outsider
Universal, 2006. Used
A fascinating full length departure from DJ Shadow – an album that's more or less made up of genre suites – rolling from sound library groove, to hood-shaking hyphy hip hop, to topical post-Katrina commentary, to beat-driven live instrument avant funk! The album's flow is more or less ... CD

DJ Shadow

Preemptive Strike
London, 1997. Used
For everyone who wasn't there the first time around, Shadow was kind enough to compile his early MoWax material, released originally as 12" singles. Unfortunately none of the really early, really hard to get stuff is here, but cuts like "Influx" and "Hindsight" are still ... CD
Delicious Vinyl/Craft, 1992. Used 2CDs
The essential early 90s classic by The Pharcyde, the group's high water mark, and one of the greatest hip hop albums of the era! Along with Del and the Souls Of Mischief, the Pharcyde were one of the few West Coast units to achieve any kind of widespread popularity using the uniquely loopy, ... CD
Cohiba (France), 1994. Used
Of all the MCs to emerge from the extremely rich French hip hop scene of the 90s, MC Solaar has certainly been the biggest – and this is the album that broke him out of the box worldwide. Titles include "Nouveau Western", "Prose Combat", "Relations Humains", ... CD

Def Jam, 1991. Used
Maybe one of the last moments of genius from Public Enemy – and a set that still has their power and politics very much at the top of their game! The message may even be more powerful than the music at points – no surprise for Chuck D and crew at this point in their career – but ... CD
