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

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.

Directed in 1967 by Blake Edwards, the film was a weak attempt to transfer ... CD
Fantastic funk from the Italian scene – penned for a cop movie that was also known over here as The Hired Gun! The style here is even more of a cut above than usual for Italian crime – really on a par with the best American work of the period, particularly some of the extra-hip stuff ... CD
One of the greatest pairings of a soundtrack composer and film director we could ever think of – the beautiful sounds of Francis Lai, matched with the brilliant images of Claude Lelouch! Most folks know the pair best for their famous collaboration on the film Un Homme Et Une Femme (A Man ... CD
A classic Francis Lai score for this Claude Lelouch period film that starred Jacques Dutronc and Marlen Jobert – set in pre and post-war Paris, and featuring a variety of historical themes intertwined with the usual Lai touches! There's some nice 70s touches to the production and ... CD
