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.
Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" ... CD
A great little album of smooth soul cuts from Greg Perry – an extremely talented arranger, producer, and songwriter whose credits includes work in soul, pop, and country – appearing here in one of the few sessions he ever cut under his own name! There's a bit of a southern soul feel ... CD
Fab pop harmony soul! The Friends Of Distinction were LA counterparts of the 5th Dimension – and at one time, members of both groups had worked under the name of Rex Middleton's Hi Fi's. Unlike the 5th Dimension, who were a bit more pop, the Friends Of Distinction stayed more in the soul ... CD
One of the more obscure early 80s soul outings on RCA – a group of five guys and one gal – all working in a mix of mainstream styles of the time! There's kind of a funk ensemble feel to the set, even though the guys aren't shown with instruments on the cover – and songs range ... CD
A totally great set for fans of harmony soul – way better than just a greatest hits by the group! The Main Ingredient are probably best remembered for their bouncier pop tunes – but we've always loved the group best for their sweet mellow tunes, the kind of late nite harmony tracks ... CD
An overlooked gem from Diana Ross' 80s years – a record that's quite different than her Motown music of the 60s and 70s, but in a way that really shows the singer stepping out and trying something new! The album's maybe more soulful than some of Diana's previous albums – thanks to work ... CD
A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s! The Nite Liters were a legendary funky combo that provided the backing for some of New Birth's best albums – but on their own, they were even funkier, and had a sound that was part JBs, part Meters, and ... CD
Killer Jimmy Castor work – from is greatest years for funky fans: the early 70s time he spent at RCA! Although Jimmy made lots of lesser work for other labels during the 70s, his time at RCA was filled with many brilliantly hard and heavy funky moments – most of which are compiled ... CD
New Birth were one of those 70s soul groups that could do it all – sweet ballads, pop soul, and funkier numbers that went over the top with the full force of the larger group behind them! This tight little 18 track compilation focuses on those funkier numbers – most of which were ... CD
Excellent work by Glenn Jones – even if the original record was only a 5 track EP! The set is one of those strange little records issued in the early 80s, when the music industry was trying to figure out a way to make money between the ever-escalating cost of the LP and the less-popular ... CD
