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.
Genius work from Max De Castro – one of our favorite talents on the current Brazilian scene, and an artist who never fails to grab our attention! Max is light years ahead of most of his contemporaries on this set – working in an effortless blend of styles that builds on a Brazilian ... CD
A wonderful album by one of the all-time greats! The record is Joao Gilberto's best in years, and it was produced by Caetano Veloso – in a spare, stripped-down style that's very similar to Joao's classic self-titled album from 1973, with an equally moody sound overall! Veloso used some ... CD
Tim Maia in concert – captured relatively recently, but in a setting that recalls his greatness from previous decades! That legendary Maia voice hasn't lost any of its punch – and really soars soulfully amidst the album's lively arrangements – backings so well-recorded, we'd ... CD
A celebration of 60s years of bossa nova by two Brazilian singers who were almost with the genre at the start! And while the ladies might look like the Golden Girls on the cover, they come across with a lot more youth and verve on the record – especially Soares, who seems as if she hasn't ... CD
By the mid 70s, Elis Regina had transformed from being a simple and strong bossa singer, into one of Brazil's best-ever singers – with a complicated emotional style that ranges with some of the best work of the 20th century (and we'd include singers like Sinatra, Scott Walker, and Jacques ... CD
A pretty great session – if only for the work of the sax players! The "stablemates" on the session are a host of older spiritual and soul jazz players – including Nathan Davis, Sam Rivers, Chico Freeman, and Arthur Blythe – alternating solos and coming together in some ... CD
A pivotal album for Chico – one that has him working with his hip group that included Charles Lloyd and Gabor Szabo, both of whom take Chico into a modal mode that would completely transform his sound! Lloyd's the center star on the album's version of his own "Forest Flower" – ... CD
Way more than just a set of musical dialogues – as the record features duets between Haden's bass and the Portuguese guitar of Carlos Paredes – in a sound that's quite different than anything we might have expected! Paredes' instrument has some distinctly folksy overtones here – ... CD
One of the greatest 60s recordings from the Wyton Kelly Trio – thanks to some wonderful guest work from guitarist Wes Montgomery! Montgomery's working here in a gusty, rootsy style that recalls his best soul jazz sides from the earlier years – and which have a feel that's quite ... CD
Sure, you've heard a lot of these cuts a million times – but honestly, it's still great to hear Rufus and Chaka, whatever the setting! The set dips back into the ABC recordings by the group, and features tracks from the years 1974 to 1979. Titles include "You Got The Love", "S ... CD
