CD

✈

A monster selection of modern dancefloor tracks – with a groove that's definitely on the far reaches of the club scene, and a sound that pushes way past most of the other house/drum n bass compilations out there! The set draws from a wide range of styles – from older jazz to modern house to funky abstract and everything in between – and the whole thing's put together with the intense care and craft of all the BBE compilations! Titles include "Swingin" by Kevin Yost, "Delicious" by Sunburst Band, "The Nervous Track" by Nuyorican Soul, "The Quest" by Eternal Sun, "Rock" by DJ Spinna", "Departure Lounge" by Hightower Set, "Revenge Of The Orange" by Maurice Fulton, "Dom B Sensi" by Those Norwegians, "Sausalito" by Grover Washington JR, "Roots" by 95 North, "Can U Handle It (full length)" by Kenny Dope, "Blacker" by Ballistic Brothers, "Scream" by Brian Harden, "Novela Das Nove" by Wally Badaru, and "Play With The Voice (MAW Mix)" by Joe T Vanelli. 18 unmixed tracks on 2CDs!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
