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 groove happy single from Mondo Grosso! The track's one of their catchiest in years – a kicking two-step beat, strong use of acoustic guitar over the beats, and sweet English language vocals by Blu James. The track's an anthemic groover of the sort that's best heard blasting out of a car ... CD

A soaring little soul tune from Mondo Grosso – featuring guest vocals by BoA! The track's got a blend of strings that sweeps towards the sky majestically – as beats and piano come in to give it a deeper feel, and BoA's English-language vocals drive the whole groove with a nice dash of ... CD
One of the best songs ever by Mondo Grosso – redone nicely in 2 mixes, plus one instrumental version! The cut was written with Monday Michiru, who also sings lead vocals on the track – and it's got all the righteous soulful power of her best work. The hook is incredible, and the cut ... CD
The first full length album by Seek – one of the leading lights in the hip Atlanta scene that also includes Laurnea, Donnie, and Julie Dexter! The record's been in the works for years, but it's been worth waiting for – as the group's evolved into a really tight soul outfit with a great ... CD

Sweet homespun space soul by wunderkind Peven Everett – transcending the neo soul scene into a hugely grooving world of his own! As with the best of his other records, Peven's way of spiraling a fairly basic groove into something HUGE is nothing short of amazing. The tunes here have a ... CD
