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.
Brightly lit, breezily soulful grooves from Nicolay's globetrotting City Lights series – inspired by a +FE tour stop in South Africa – and it may be the best City Lights set yet! One thing we love about the series, and the Soweto entry in particular, is that Nicolay isn't out to copy ... CD
The biggest selling album ever cut by Blue Note – and a festive romp through samples of the label's famous jazz catalog! US3 mix it up on tunes that include "Cantaloop", "I Got It Goin On", "Different Rhythms", "Eleven Long Years", "Lazy Day" ... CD
Damn wonderful work from Nathan Haines – and proof that the reigning prince of the London cosmic scene is still going strong! This long-awaited set is every bit as wonderful as anything we've heard from Haines before – a sublime blend of soulful rhythms, jazzy riffs, and righteous ... CD
A compelling new project from Nobody – quite different from his previous work, and very much in tuneful territory – thanks to help from vocalist Niki Randa! The style here is somewhat subtle – well-crafted tunes that shimmer in shadows of soundshapes – almost atmospheric, ... CD
A loungey gem from Irma! Supposedly, these guys are the horn players for Herbalizer – and here, they're grooving in a retro-bossa mode with electronica touches, mixing keyboards, horns, and just a bit of vocals into that stripped down lounge groove that the Irma label has always handled so ... CD
A great album – made even better – as Louie Vega's heavenly Elements Of Life set gets "extensions" from a host of other producers and DJs! This isn't one of those "let's see how much we can mess up the original record" sort of projects – as the core sound and ... CD
The grooviest set we've heard so far from Sam Paglia – no surprise, given that he's issued this album on the ultra-cool DejaVu label! As on previous Paglia efforts, the keyboards are strongly in the lead on most numbers – mostly Hammond, but also some Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer piano, ... CD
A well-remembered set from JVC Force – a group who were maybe most notable at the time as being one of the best labelmates of Boogie Down Productions on B-Boy Records – and who should have been able to give the world a lot more music than they did, thanks to the strength of this album! ... CD
Funky grooves, psychedelic sitar, and mod Hammond organ – a magnificent blend that's every bit as dynamic as the image on the cover – served up as the long-awaited debut album from this cool European combo! The album's got a feel that's somewhere between 60s spy soundtracks and Brit ... CD
Some of the finer Private Press-era Shadow cuts get stretched out, beat up, and kicked into overdrive by UNKLE, Soulwax, DJ Z Trip and others! Z Trip's take on "Right Thing" revisits Shadow's style directly – breaking the track up into three uptempo parts, making it into a bit of ... CD
