Daily Operation

CD (Item 539775) Chrysalis/EMI, 1992 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Guru and Premier at peak level – and one of the greatest hip hop albums of the early 90s! Everything we love about classic Gang Starr is in full effect on Daily Operation – hard-hitting beats, dexterous jazz funk and soul samples, deft scratches and Guru's mic mastery out front. Classic, classic, classic! Includes "Take It Personal", "Ex Girl To Next Girl", "Take Two And Pass", "The Illest Brother", "I'm The Man" with one Jeru's first appearances on record (THE first?), "Soliloquy Of Chaos", "Hardcore Composer", "No Shame In My Game", "The Place Where We Dwell" and more.  © 1996-2021, 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.
