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.

A Onda E Boogaloo
EMI (Brazil), 1969. Used
Swingin Brazilian soul from Eduardo Araujo – a late 60s groover that's steeped in the styles of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, but which also has a unique twist that's all its own! Eduardo's definitely in the "boogaloo" mode referred to in the title, as the album's a blend of the hard ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2005. Used
A mighty new effort from the amazing Tom Ze – a wild, heaving stylistic sprawl that's as dense and wonderful as his other recent efforts for Trama – but far more ambitious than anything he's done in many years! If you know anything about Tom Ze, you know that the man's aural art is ... CD

EMI (Brazil), 1966. Used
One of Brazil's greatest vocalists meets one of its hippest bossa combos!

Terra Dos Passaros
Odeon/Dubas (Brazil), 1979. Used
One of the greatest albums ever from Toninho Horta – a set that's head and shoulders above most of his later work, and a record that we'd easily rank right up there with the best 70s albums from Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges! Like both of those artists, Toninho works here in a spacious, ... CD

Noriel Vilela

Eis O Ome
EMI (Brazil), 1968. Used

Sirius B

Posto Nove
Baseline (UK), 2001. Used
One of the best new albums of Brazilian jazz we've heard in years – a warm and wonderful session that bubbles with 70s energy, and which reminds us of some of the best cross-cultural sessions of the 70s. The group's from England, but they've got a warm finish that equal parts Rio and San ... CD
