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.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Mid 70s. Used
A much-needed look at the funky Miami scene of the late 60s and early 70s – the new powerhouse of southern soul, after the slowdown in the scenes in Memphis and Muscle Shoals! The Miami sound was harder, tighter, rawer, and faster than that of other southern outlets – based around a ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used
Quite possibly one of the greatest funk compilations ever – and we're not just saying that because we're from the Midwest! The genius compilers at Jazzman spent years scouring the smaller cities of the American hinterlands – tracking down obscure musicians, long-lost labels, and nearly- ... CD
St. Germain (France), 1998. Used
Very cool first volume in this series of lost groovy funky French tracks, with a sound that's similar to the Sexopolis or Get Easy comps, and with a very hard to find batch of material. Lots of swingin' vocals, jazzy bits, organ solos, funky drums, and a cool Euro 60's groove. 13 cuts, by the ... CD
Soul Patrol (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
Funky sounds from the Soul Patrol label – Funky Sex Machines from the 60s & 70s – gritty rhythms, bursts of brass, heavy organs and and feverish vocals! Soul Patrol puts together funky numbers culled from hard-to-find 45s, with numbers by Detroit Sex Machines, James Polk & The ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 70s. Used
Seminal sounds from the Parisian jazz community of the early 70s – a scene that had as much late 60s revolutionary energy as the American one – and which steps forth here in a beautiful blend of righteous themes and really far-reaching styles! The politics of the set are obvious from ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
Funk from Seattle? Hardly seems likely – but prepare to be amazed! The funky reissuers at Light In The Attic, in collaboration with Mr Supreme, have unearthed a treasure trove of rare singles and groovers for the set – all obscure local recordings from the Emerald City scene, most of ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, Late 60s-Mid 70s. Used
Good God, indeed – a masterful compilation of some of the weirdest James Brown covers you've ever heard – a truly global assortment of tunes, all of which really keep the best funky spirit of The Godfather in place! The tracks here go way past the usual, and most of the numbers are all ... CD
RCA, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
A killer batch of funk from the RCA family of labels – long-neglected in the world of reissues, and finally stepping out with this ultra heavy set! The package does a really great job of pulling together disparate elements of funk from the RCA catalog – a bit of jazz vocals, electric ... CD
Blue Note, 2004. Used
A dream come true! Someone at Blue Note is keeping their eyes and ears on the street and in the clubs – because here's another late model conceptual triumph – a remix project pairing current innovators in the club and hip hop underground with classic numbers from the label's vaults! ... CD
Goldmine (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used
There's so many funky compilations on the market these days – it's hard to believe that one like this can sound so darn fresh! The set features loads of tracks that we've never heard before – all super-heavy funky 45 tracks, with lots of guitar, heavy bass, and tripped out drums that ... CD
CBS, 1974. Used
Spiritual, soulful, and oh, so beautiful! This record captures Earth Wind & Fire at a perfect transition moment – when they've still got some of their avant jazz roots, but are leaning towards the smooth soulful funk sound that put them on the charts a few years later. The whole thing's ... CD
