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.
Great early material from Eddie Palmieri – one of his classic records done with Conjunto La Perfecta – a group that's poised on contrapuntal trombone lines, and which had a very important influence on Latin jazz styles in the 60s! The use of trombone makes for lots of dark edges – ... CD
One of Eddie's early gems with his La Perfecta group – a hard-hitting ensemble with a sound that encompassed the charanga era, yet which also pointed the way towards many styles past it. Eddie's strong piano is a very big part of the group's success – jazzing things up at the right ... CD
Possibly the greatest album ever from Angel Canales – a 70s salsa classic through and through, and one with great links between the New York scene and Canales' Puerto Rican roots! The tunes are wonderfully heartfelt throughout – sung with a youthful sense of soul that's far different ... CD
Killer early 60s work by Charlie Palmieri and his La Duboney group – a combo who were Charlie's equivalent to the La Perfecta lineup headed by Eddie Palmieri! Like that group, this one has a very sharp, modern approach to the Cuban style – one that's inflected by a deep knowledge of ... CD
A lost bit of late 60s Latin – with a really soulful feel! The band has an extremely strong instrumental sound, with a twin trombone lineup that's nice and tight – and they work with lots of dark descending chord progressions, spinning out tunes that bubble in blue notes, and nicely ... CD
A classic collaboration between Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco – one that uses the rootsier sounds of Pacheco's tumbao group to further focus the energy of Celia's vocals! The record's got a solid, cohesive feel that makes it easily one of the best Celia Cruz sessions of the 70s – a ... CD
There's a slightly rootsy groove to this 70s set from Conjunto Candela – a cool mix of salsa-styled trumpet lines with tres from Tony Velez – a mode that's similar to some of the groups working on the Vaya and International labels at the time! Vocals are by Louie Rodriguez and Charlie ... CD
Salsa with class from congolero Johnny Ray – a set that's got many of the same tight edges used in his 70s work as Johnny Zamot, but which comes across with a sound that's slightly more contemporary overall! The group here features Johnny on congas, plus horns, piano, percussion, and a bit ... CD
