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.
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
Great collection of rare uptown soul cuts from the United Artists, Liberty, and Minit labels, with 27 fantastic tracks of heavenly well-produced soul tracks by people like Homer Banks, June Jackson, The Diplomats, Estelle Brown, Betty Turner, Danny Wagner, and other artists that you'll pay dearly ... CD
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
A tremendous little record from Love Peace & Happiness – a great vocal trio from the early 70s, and one who really shine with this overlooked gem for RCA! The trio were part of the New Birth/Nite Liters universe that producer Harvey Fuqua brought to the label at the time – and they' ... CD
Great album by Gil Scott-Heron from a few years ago, and a record that turned out to be a much better than any of us figured it would be! Gil's voice and writing is as beautiful as ever, and very much in the tradition of his best 70's work. The production is just right on most of the tracks, and ... CD
Excellent (and well-known) comp featuring some of the great work from the Nashboro, Excello, and A-Bet labels, and tracing a great triangle from Memphis, to Muscle Shoals, to Nashville. Loads of nice stuff nicely packaged, and including tracks by Roshell Anderson, Kelly Brothers, Kip Anderson, ... CD
Very tight batch of uptown soul put together by the good folks at Goldmine. Some great male vocalists in the early smooth soul tradition – and some great lost female vocal sides that we never ever see. Titles include "Who Is It Gonna Be" by Dee & Joe", "I'm Lonely ... CD
