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.
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.

Great work from Platinum Hook – a group who got their start in late 70s Motown, but who sound even better on this sweet 80s date for RCA! The album's got a vibe that grabs us right from the start – 80s soul with plenty of boogie at the bottom – fused together in a tight blend of ... CD

Excellent side of the Diamonds' nice harmonies riding hard stepping rockers rhythms! The Diamonds were never shy about borrowing from the sounds that were hot in cities across the shores, like Detroit or Chicago, and they sound great over these driving cuts, which are served up in bonus dub ... CD
