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.
An amazing slice of music from the legendary David Axelrod – quite different than his better-known sides for Capitol and Reprise Records – and plenty darn funky overall! Axelrod is at his studio best here – stepping off the funky jazz modes he produced for Cannonball Adderley, ... CD
David Axelrod's back – and he hasn't changed a bit! This brilliant new record for Mo Wax sounds just like the best of his work for Capitol during the late 60s – spare, jazzy, baroque, and filled with the kinds of dark twists and turns that have made him a legend forever with the hip ... CD
Seminal west coast modern work from Jimmy Giuffre – both of his mid 50s classics for Capitol Records, back to back on one CD! The self-titled album Jimmy Giuffre is from 1954 – and was incredible work from one of the freshest new voices in jazz at the time! The album takes tracks from ... CD
A completely fresh take on the Charlie Parker aesthetic of the bop generation – updated for the 70s, but in ways that are still pretty classic overall! The group's a large one, but plays with a tightness that goes way past their gimmicky name – thanks to players who include Med Flory ... CD
Classic Latin-tinged fusion on Capitol – recorded with a smooth soulful style that's right up there with the best of the Capitol Rare generation! Caldera mixes together nice jazzy saxes with guitars, percussion, and some great keyboard work by Eduardo Del Barrio – all produced by the ... CD
A very cool package – featuring lots of non-LP material, and some rare tracks too! The Gene Krupa sessions are all from the mid 40s for Capitol – and the Harry James are from that great mid 50s time when he was really reinventing his sound! CD
During the 1940s, Capitol Records recorded some of the best female vocal records of the decade – blending swing with jazz and bits of emerging R&B, to cut sides that still sound pretty darn great today, and which are often used to define our sense of the classic American girl singer. ... CD
A jazzy Latin fusion classic – and the first album by the border-crossing combo Caldera! The group featured both North and South American players – coming together in a hard-riffing approach to fusion that rivaled the best fusion combos of both the California and Brazilian scenes at ... CD
The satin Shearing sound is in perfect form here – backed by added strings and woodwinds conducted by Billy May – and key proof that Billy could come up with some richly subtle arrangements when he wanted! Most prominent instrumentation comes from George's piano, and the group's ... CD
