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.
A classic collaboration between Peter Brotzmann and Albert Mangelsdorff – one that brings together these two avant giants in German jazz, all with an intensity that rivals Brotzmann's more famous work on the FMP label! Mangelsdorff's trombone is often strongly focused in that sound-based ... CD
A monster from the FMP archives – a lost trio set, recorded live in Berlin on two dates in the early 80s! It features frenetic South African drummer Louis Moholo, wild soprano and tenor sax from Larry Stabbins, and piano work by Keith Tippett, who spent time in King Crimson in the 70s before ... CD
Long-overdue reissue of one of Ra's greatest moments! The song "Nuclear War" is to Ra's 80s career what "Space Is The Place" was to his 70s one – a bona-fide hit, played with a catchy groove, and a chorus that was a great hook into new audiences at the time. It's got a ... CD
Wild early work from avant jazz genius Joe McPhee – and a set that's actually pretty darn funky too! This rare indie release features 3 long tracks – two of which were recorded live, with a tight combo that includes a very funky drummer! The album kicks off with the hard wailing " ... CD
Kind of reminds us of some of the New York noise from the early 80s – with Nels Cline proficiently jamming away on guitar, and Bendian playing vibes and "fuzz vibes" in tight choppy modal lines with the group's proggish rhythm. Titles include "Drive", "Sanctuary" ... CD
A hard-driving collaboration between Zu and Mats Gustafsson – power jazz at its fiercest, with a pedal-to-the-metal sound that comes across with a definite punk-influenced approach to jazz, and at times a garagey quality that's a nice contrast to other recent avant jazz recordings! The ... CD
A very nice little album – and one that moves way past the gimmicky nature that you might guess from the title! The Sun Ra influence is obvious – as it seems natural for the Chicago-based players to show a bit of respect to what's gone before them in the city. The Funkadelic twist ... CD
A Chicago avant jazz supergroup – featuring Mars Williams on saxes, Kent Kessler on bass, Greg Suran on guitar, Wayne Kramer on guitar, David Suycott on drums and effects, and Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello. The approach here certainly shows a lot of Williams' sides – fast and frenetic ... CD
Insane! This lost bit of avant funk was recorded live in St Louis in 1973 – part of the Black Artists Group scene that was the city's answer to Chicago's AACM movement of the late 60s. Alto player Luther Thomas heads up the group, which features Charles Shaw on drums, JD Parran on reeds, ... CD
