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 the funkiest albums you'll ever hear from Gilberto Gil – a really cool record that's done in the same sort of samba soul style that Jorge Ben was using in the 70s – with similarly wonderful results! The rhythms are great – a really compelling mix of rootsy elements and ... CD
Essential Brazilian rock from the 70s! Secos e Molhados were a post-Tropicalia group that drew on some of the work of Brazilian groups before them, and mixed it up with hard rock and glam styles that were coming from America and the UK. The leader of the group was singer Ney Matogrosso, who went ... CD
A rare 60s album by the lovely Sonia Rosa – lots of sweet bossa tunes, handled with a very light touch! The set's got Rosa singing and playing acoustic guitar in front of larger backings by Chiquinho Moraes – nice and jazzy on most of the tracks, with a sound that pushes Rosa past the ... CD
One of the warmest, most intimate records we've ever heard from Vinicius Cantuaria – and one of the most beautiful too! The set's got Vinicius on vocals and guitar, in the company of guitarist Ricardo Silveira, and no other instrumentation at all – which makes for a wonderfully airy ... CD
Incredible work by Edu Lobo – a watershed album that marked a whole new period of musical expression – not just for Lobo, but Brazil as well! The album picks up a post-bossa sound and moves it into the realm of baroque grooving – using complicated vocals and light guitar next to ... CD
Well, we don't know if this actually contains a full 100 years' worth of music, but it is a very nice 4-CD set that serves as a good introduction to the music of Brazil. Put together by the same folks who did the Cuba box set, this set has a similar style that assigns a specific genre to each CD ... CD
An amazing early album from Brazilian guitar virtuoso Luiz Bonfa – originally recorded by the audiophile Cook Laboratories on a Nagra recorder – in a spare, stripped-down, "in the field" sort of style! There's an intimacy here that's missing from some of Bonfa's studio ... CD
