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.

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.

Eddie Harris

I Need Some Money
Atlantic (Japan), 1975. Used
A nice little funk album from Eddie – one that shouldn't work, but does nicely, thanks to a unique approach to the groove! Eddie's still playing plenty of electric sax on the set – and is going for a sound here that's equal parts soul jazz, modal groove, and down and dirty funk! The ... CD
Atlantic, 1965. Used
A very unusual album from Max Roach – and one that continues his great 50s trend of seeking out some of the freshest players in jazz! The set's a rare trio outing for Max – and it features some incredible piano work by a musician named Hasaan – a player we only know from this set ... CD

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Bright Moments
Atlantic, 1973. Used 2 CDs
Great double album live set with Roland leading a tight group through a long and varied set of material, all of which showcases the odd goofy sound of his music, and his offbeat approach to more familiar tracks. He talks a bit, makes the odd joke about being blind, and never ceases to amaze with ... CD

Rahsaan Roland Kirk & Al Hibbler/Ornette Coleman

Meeting Of The Times/Ornette!
Atlantic/Collectables, 1961/1972. Used
Certainly one of the strangest 2-fer CDs we've ever seen! The release pairs one of Rashaan Roland Kirk's later albums for Atlantic with a classic release by Ornette – and both of the records are quite different from each other. The Ornette's worth the price of the CD alone – as it ... CD

A rare date as a singer for George Wein – who also plays piano on the set, with work from Ruby Braff on trumpet and Sammy Margolis on tenor! CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1974/1975. Used 2 CD's
Two albums of funky soul from Les McCann! By this point in his career, Les has moved past straight jazz, and is spending a lot of time on vocals – sung in a nice raspy style that makes up for what it lacks in technique with a nice dose of soul! He's also still playing piano, mixed with some ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 7 CDs & Book
An amazing set of work by John Coltrane – some of his best recordings ever, tracks that form a pivotal point between his later 50s work with Miles Davis and his mid 60s spiritual searching years. The set's unbelievably exhaustive – and includes every track that was ever issued by ... CD
