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.
One of the coolest new groups we've heard on Daptone in a long time – an instrumental combo that's definitely funky, but which has some of the exotic touches you might expect from their name! There's a nice current of strings that slide in alongside more familiar funk instrumentation – ... CD
Raw, original instrumental funk from The Cactus Channel – who are coming straight outta Melbourne – and they're barely outta high school! It's kind of stunning that a group as youthful as this one is delivering such a finely-honed set of rave-up funk! It's largely done in the 70s ... CD
Keyboard flavored funky, jazzy sweetness from The Fantastics – who've had a pretty terrific run of funky 45s and a tight full length – delivering their best work yet and one of our favorite albums on Freestyle of the past couple years with All The People! There's a real love of ... CD
One of the best new funk albums we've heard in years – and one that really does an amazing job of putting equal emphasis on intrumentation and deep soul vocals! Slim Moore comes across like some lost singer from the early 70s funky 45 generation – gritty and upfront, with a quality ... CD
Hard Steppin funk and Afro steeped grooves from Ikebe Shakedown – solid stuff from the fertile Brooklyn funk scene – blending hard hitting 70s funk & soul with both stateside and African influences and more measured and slow cooking numbers! The group is young and doesn't take the ... CD
Mod mod grooving from Iowa's Diplomats Of Solid Sound – a tight little combo that's steeped in the ways of Booker T and Jimmy McGriff – but which also knows how to rock it when they can! The core group's a quartet – with Hammond and Fender Rhodes leading the grooves, plus a bit ... CD
The eponymous full length from Nashville psyche funk trio Magic In Threes! There's something of a sound library style to the set – but the trio format gives their take on that groove in a bit of a tighter, more reigned in take on the groove. That's not to say it's not a diverse tapestry of ... CD
A killer tribute to the Meters by the Killer Meters – a shadowy quartet that somehow manages to live up to their ambition of recreating the heat of the one-and-only Funky Meters! The group faithfully brings those great Meters tunes to life, thanks in no small part to the furious strength of ... CD
Organ funk opus number 4 from Link Quartet! This is another killer set with scores of classic styled keyboard groovers, plus some spacier, yet still tightly spun numbers from the core quartet – but the stretch out nicely on the set, too. It features vocals on a few numbers – plus ... CD
A groovy little document of the Hammond-driven Italian Link Quartet – one that brings together an array of rare tracks from now-deleted 45s recorded over the past decade or so! The group have been one of the key links between the funk and mod scenes around the globe – and they work ... CD
A groundbreaking album from Sonny Rollins, largely for the extended track "Tenor Madness", which runs on for 13 minutes, and features him and Coltrane blowing head to head – redefining the sound of the tenor sax in jazz through the course of that amazing track! Backing is by the ... CD
