Ram Jam — Very Best Of Ram Jam ... CD 6.99

Stranger things have happened, to be sure – but who'd have thought that the Kasenetz-Katz team, onetime hit bubblegum producers at Kama-Sutra, would score big with a 70s rock version of an old Leadbelly song? "Black Betty" did just that – and if Ram Jam are remembered for one thing on this planet, it will be their choppy guitar reading of this old folksy number, redone as kind of a choppy funky ZZ Top-ish track. Unfortunately, the rest of the record's not that great, and it kind of falls into the formula of the big hit.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

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.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.
