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.
As classic an early album by Miles Davis as you can find – truly filled with the "all star" players billed in the title, and a session that has the sharpness of Davis' bop work for Blue Note, yet also lets him stretch out in a slightly more relaxed format! The album features Miles ... CD
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a ... CD
A nice little collection of some classic hard bop from Jimmy Heath, with a few of the sides of some the stuff he recorded with larger ensembles thrown in for good measure, pulled together in the 80s, once the OJC family of labels came under the Fantasy umbrella. Heath's Riverside recordings of the ... CD
A nice straight batch of tracks from Pepper – and a record that we like more than some of the more "classic" ones on Contemporary! The album's got quite a strange title – Smack Up, a very strange choice, given Pepper's well-known experience as a junkie – and features ... CD
Maybe not the Acid Jazz extravaganza promised in the title – but a set that features two early sweet albums that match Sonny Stitt's tenor with the Hammond of Don Patterson! First up is Low Flame – mellow late-night set of jazz tracks, cut with Don Patterson and his trio that included ... CD
One of the few US releases by 50s Belgian reedman Bobby Jaspar – a talent who graced countless European sessions at the time, but who's working here in a rare date with an American group! As on other albums from the period, Jaspar plays both tenor and flute – alternating between ... CD
A really unique little small group effort from the team of Thad Jones and Pepper Adams – one that predates Jones' bigger band work with Mel Lewis (also part of the group here), and offers one of the few chances to hear him in a small group in the late 60s! The record's got a care and charm ... CD
Oscar Peterson pays tribute to a host of his famous jazz friends – performing tunes that were strongly associated with artists like Ben Webster, Lester Young, Billie Holiday, and others – all while working here in an equally friendly quartet that features Joe Pass on guitar, Niels ... CD
