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.
A monumental debut from Giles Deyampert – sure to be a key player in the sound of 21st Century Soul, and an artist with a sound that's as great as 4 Hero, Koop, Ursula Rucker, or any other artists of that elite rank! Like those we dare mention in the same breath, Deyampert has a great talent ... CD
An excellent little record from the same Finnish scene that's given us Quintessence and the Teddy Rok Seven! Like both of those groups, Fly works in a style that's clearly inspired by older jazz and soul – and which has a warm sense of spirit and surprisingly deep approach – working ... CD
A wonderful single from Japanese singer Akiko – with help from Swing Out Sister! Akiko does a sublime job with Jobim's "Waters Of March" – taking the tune at a style that's very different from most other versions – skipping along with a bit more confidence than Jobim ... CD
A brilliant solo debut from Tuomo – a singer we know from his work with the Finnish group Quintessence, stepping out here in even more soulful territory on his own! Tuomo's got a warmly raspy sound that's all-classic, all the way – a unique voice that could well become one of our ... CD
A wonderful little album from Monday Michiru – her tenth solo album in a short but strong legacy of soul! The album builds on the maturing sound that Monday's been crafting over her previous records – a really cohesive sound that takes bits of classic 70s jazz, Latin rhythms, acoustic ... CD
Another top-shelf session from Monday Michiru – one of the few current artists who's been able to hold our attention for so many years, thanks to an ever-deepening quality in her work! Back at the end of the 90s, we were first amazed when Monday moved simpler dance-based work into more ... CD
A wonderful set from UK chanteuse Alice Russell – one of the best records yet to come out on always reliable Tru Thoughts label! Alice's strong soul vocals have added real depth to tracks by Quantic and others, but here she succeeds tenfold as the marquee artist! She has a heavy, resonate ... CD
The latest Chapter from Syleena Johnson – she knows, and we know, she's Underrated – utilizing that very knowledge as a mission statement on this '11 set for Shanachie! Modern hip hop soul, with thumping, anthemic production and great vocals by Syleena – this is the kinda thing ... CD
A lovely debut from this icy little Finnish ensemble – done in a laidback singer-songwriter mode, one that mixes together equal parts Quintessence-styled soul and guitar-based pop. Many of the tunes are nice and mellow – combining English language vocals with cool-toned piano lines, ... CD
Killer stuff from Booker Ervin – and one of his first sessions as a leader! The album was recorded during a stretch when Ervin was coming into fame as a member of the Mingus group – and he's playing here with a number of Mingus-ites like Richard Williams on trumpet, Horace Parlan on ... CD
An amazing 2-in-1 CD – filled with sublime work from the mighty Art Farmer! First up is Brass Shout – a great little album by this wonderful trumpeter – and one that we passed up for years because we were afraid of the words "brass" and "shout" in the title! ... CD
