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 Maria Bethania's most beautiful albums in years – one that features some great guitar accompaniment by Jaime Alem, who also helped produce the record. The album's got an intimate quality that works beautifully with Bethania's deep vocals – recorded here in a setting that's a lot ... CD
An incredible treasure of Brazilian music – the only album we've ever seen from Jose Mauro, and one of the few records ever issued on the legendary Quartin label! There's a soaring brilliance here that easily matches the best early 70s work from Milton Nascimento and Edu Lobo – with ... CD
A great recent album by Gilberto Gil – and one recorded in Oslo with a huge mixture of styles criss-crossing in a very international venue. The record features performances by Trilok Gurtu, Toninho Ferragutti, and the lovely Marlui Miranda – and many of the tracks have a nice rootsty ... CD
A great record! One of the nicest recent records by either Caetano or Gal Costa, and a compelling recent soundtrack to the film Tieta Do Agreste, by director Carlos Diegues. As with the other Caetano Veloso soundtrack on Blue Jackel, this one features arrangements and orchestrations by Jaques ... CD
A far-reaching album by Caetano – with a wide scope of sounds and influences, from tribal/ethnic percussion, to subtle jazzy backdrops, to guitar-driven numbers that hint at a brief return to rock music. The rich tapestry of themes and images are perfectly linked by Veloso's always-wonderful ... CD
One of Maria Bethania's great collaborations with arranger Jaime Alem – an artist we loved as part of the team of Jaime & Nair back in the 70s, and who's really helping Bethania find some deeper space here in the middle years of her career! At a time when Maria had moved into some of the ... CD
Another feather in the Six Degrees cap – and like the rest of their Brazilian music repertoire, an artist who seems bent on breaking down boundaries – both in styles and generations! Ceu's got the same "old is new" feeling as some of the label's other work in recent years ... CD
A beautiful album of fusion on the Som Da Gente label, and one that mixes guitar, percussion, and reeds in an extremely evocative way. Some of this sounds a bit like early 70s work by Egberto Gismonti or Hermeto Pascoal – with the acoustic instruments produced in a way that creates airy ... CD
A classic double-length collection of work by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – originally titled a "Foursider" because of the 2LP format of the original! The package is overflowing with greatness by the group – and the extra space allows the set to include some real gems from ... CD
