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.

Ismael's still going strong at the end of the 70s – working with a set of arrangements by pianist Javier Vazquez – all in a tight salsa mode, but with some nice rootsy touches! Mario Hernandez plays tres on the record, giving some tunes a really nice bottom rhythm – and the group ... CD
Brilliant early work by one of the sharpest bandleaders of the Latin Soul era! A young Joey Pastrana leads his sharp little combo through a stunning mix of Latin jazz, Latin soul, and descarga tracks – all with the kind of hard playing, jazzy grooves, and dark edges that characterized a lot ... CD
Willie and Hector really open things up here on this excellent early 80s session – going for longer tracks that really expand upon their classic sound of the 70s! There's a very ambitious approach to the music – with more passages that shift between vocals and instrumentation than ... CD
Joe Quijano slows it down a bit – hitting some nicely romantic modes in this selection of boleros and ballads, all done with some lightly Latin backings! The style here isn't as sleepy as other bolero collections of this nature – thanks to Joe's retrained emotion on the tunes, and his ... CD
Beautiful late 60's southern soul by one of the best (and rarest) groups of the genre. The amazing trio of the Kelly Brothers recorded these tracks for the Excello label between 1966 and 1968, and although some of them were compiled on an album by the group, that album's been tremendously hard to ...
