This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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. 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.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of
surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be
clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we
handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted
otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so
look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
Amazing! This is a very cool 19-track CD that brings together all of the Caetano Veloso singles from his first 10 years, and it's a great batch of material that includes many tracks that haven't been on LPs, or any of the CD reissues we've been stocking! As with any major artist like this, the ... CD
Another great chapter in the always-surprising later career of Caetano Veloso – and a record that's unlike anything else he's recorded before! The style here is a real change both from some of his more ambitious and more experimental works of late – and the album mostly features small ... CD
Strong work by Maria Bethania from the late 70s – a session that has her tightening up her sound a bit more than before, but without any loss of her sense of drama or emotion! The album was recorded with a number of different musical backgrounds, including many small group settings with ... CD
Incredible new work from Trio Mocoto – the famous Samba Soul trio who were such a big part of Jorge Ben's work in the early 70s! The group still have all the funky flourish of their classic years – and they're working here in a setting that takes that sound, and respectfully touches it ... CD
A real criss-crossing of styles here – lyrical MPB meets heavier production with lots of guitars – in a style that reminds us of the best work by Chico Science and some of his more recent heirs in Brazilian music! Titles include "Papo Macaco", "Abra A Boca", "Pa ... CD
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach ... CD
Three of the greatest albums from Jorge Mautner – really overlooked work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s, presented here in a great 3CD package! First up is Para Iluminar A Cidade – a masterpiece from the Brazilian underground of the post-Tropicalia years – one of the first ... CD
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that ... CD
Slow Motion Bossa Nova certainly fits this one – a beautiful album of lush jazzy arrangements, done in the 60s style of artists like Roberto Menescal or Lalo Schifrin, but with added touches of soulful vocals by Celso Fonseca. The assemblage of musicians on the record is great – and ... CD
Unfortunately, most of the classic albums by this great Brazilian singer languished out of print for far too long – but whether you've finally picked those up or not, this extensive "best of" is a wonderful listen! The style's a mix of jazzy and bossa material with some of her ... CD
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier ... CD
