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.
Some of the darkest, most bracing music ever recorded by Throbbing Gristle – and a record that arguably captures the group at their best! The sounds here are virtually the blueprint for industrialism for years to come – loads of low-end sonic rumblings, with instrumentation distorted ... CD
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences ... CD
2 early ones from The Beach Boys – records that show them growing a lot, musically and emotionally, and also showing a bit of the strain to fill so many albums with quality material. This 27 track set features some real gems – like the original and German versions of "In My ... CD
Another superb blend of spacey jazz and progressive instrumental musings, touched with a bit of 70s Miles, and served up with excellent production and the usual high level of standards you'd expect from Jeff Parker, Rob Mazurek, Dan Bitney, John Herndon, and Matt Lux. Proof that Chicago is still ... CD
2 early albums from The Beach Boys, plus 3 bonus tracks, making for a great 27 track set that features some wonderful gems! Our favorite is "The Lonely Sea", an incredible number filled with sadness and longing, set to a sophisticated mellow harmony sound that points the way towards Pet ... CD
The great early double album from Tom Waits – getting into full on charismatic drunken bluesy poet mode – essentially working live in the studio, and embracing his wit and way with a sly monologue as brilliantly as he'd done to this point. Brilliant vintage waits and a loose, yet ... CD
