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. 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.

Legacy, Mid 70s. Used
From a hard soul trio to one of the biggest soul chart acts of the mid 70s, The Emotions had an amazing ride to the top. Although the sisters started out in the field of gospel, then moved through indie labels to cut a few nice raw soul albums for Stax, it was the Chicago soul genius of Maurice ... CD
Impulse, 1960. Used
We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones ... CD

Curtom/Charly, Early 70s. Used
Curtis Mayfield, and a heck of a lot of greatness from the Chicago scene of the early 70s – music that comes from a rare TV special that also features guest appearances from Leroy Hutson, Jerry Butler, and Gene Chandler! Don't confuse this one with the 2LP Curtis Live set issued around the ... CD

Alston, 1971. Used
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to ... CD
Universal Sound/Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. Used
Finally! Someone's gone and done a proper job of reissuing the great work of the legendary ESG! The group are a key chapter in the New York groove scene – and were a seminal link in the post-punk, post-disco, old school hip hop years, when bands and styles were criss-crossing the Big Apple ... CD
Goldmine (UK), Late 70s. Used
Goldmine's first CD in their series exploring the modern soul genre – one that they define as being a bit smoother, and with a sort of 70's mid- and uptempo twist to it (but no disco or club-type tracks.) Lots of rare non-LP stuff, with tracks like "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "S ... CD
Roulette/West Side (UK), Mid 70s. Used
Although the glory days of the Roulette label were long past during the 1970s – as the company mostly made its fame from big R&B acts during the 50s and 60s – someone at the NY indie managed to cut a lot of great wax with some of the more obscure club acts on the east coast, many of ... CD
