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.

Great work from The Drifters – and a set that features material both from the group's years with Clyde McPhatter in the lead, and from the later versions of the group in the early 60s! Both sides of The Drifters are totally great – as you'll hear in this stunning set of cuts recorded ... CD
Atlantic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used
The golden hits of The Drifters, but a set that mostly features on the group's great second chapter at Atlantic Records – a time when original singer Clyde McPhatter had left the group, and Ben E King and Rudy Lewis came in with a very different style in the lead! Lieber & Stoller were ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Mid 60s. Used
Two seminal albums in the development of uptown soul – both of them 60s gems from The Drifters! The albums have the group working strongly in that bouncy mix of vocals and strings that were their greatest calling card in the post-Clyde McPhatter years. The sound is amazing throughout – ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
20 track compilation that spans the career of groovy soulster Archie Bell, and his group The Drells. The set includes Bell's huge hit "Tighten Up", but it's also got a great array of other material from his different recording periods – all of which show him pushing way past his ... CD
Rhino/Event, 1970s. Used
A nice collection of Fatback's later work – featuring 14 tunes the group cut for the Event label, once they smoothed out some of the sharper edges of their earlier funky stuff for Perception. The tracks aren't the hardest the group ever cut – save for the breakbeat classic "Let's ... CD

Spinners

Spinners Live!
Atlantic/Collectables, 1975. Used
A fascinating little record by The Spinners – and a real contrast to some of their other Atlantic albums! The set has them stepping out of the tightly controlled studio sound of their Philly albums – still working with Thom Bell on production, but doing so in a freer sort of live ... CD
Atlantic, Early 70s. Used
Includes tracks by Aretha Franklin, King Floyd, Wilson Pickett, Blue Magic, Roberta Flack, the Spinners, and Dionne Warwicke. CD
Atlantic, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 8 CDs
Here it is, the mother of them all! The set's got 8CDs worth of killer soul, funk, and Rhythm & Blues – all culled from the rich history of the Atlantic records label, and lovingly put together with great notes and everything! Although this sort of set usually tends to be a bit ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used
... CD
Rhino, 1970s/Early 80s. Used
Features music by Skyy, Tavares, Rose Royce, Patrice Rushen, Zapp, Chaka Khan and Rick James, D Train, Tower Of Power, Johnnie Taylor, Delegation, Moments, and 21st Century. CD
Atlantic/Ichiban/Soul Classics, Late 60s. Used
22 tracks of great southern soul from Arthur Conley's late 60s recordings for Atlantic - including a number of cuts not available on the current Kent compilation! CD
Atlantic, 1958. Used
Bessie Smith by LaVern Baker – a great blend of modes that really comes off great! Instead of sounding like a throwback blues album, the set comes across with a nice degree of contemporary class – thanks in part to a jazzy presentation that's a bit different than some of Baker's other ... CD
