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.
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.

A wonderful live date from the team of Flora Purim and Airto Moreira – recorded at a time when Flora was working more in an R&B style on records, but done in a soaring, jazzy vibe that's like the duo's best work from earlier in the 70s! Tracks are long, and this beautiful blend of ... CD
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots ... CD
A lively little trio set from the master of Bossa Nova piano! Joao recorded this recent set with his trio that includes Luiz Alves on bass and Claudio Slon on drums – and the feel of the session is stripped-down and acoustic, with a strong focus on Donato's talent for soloing, and for ... CD
'Dark-edged Brazilian pop from China – but work that still has a nice sense of warmth overall! There's a balance here that takes some of the sharper guitars and rhythms of early 80s postpunk, and wraps them around some of the hipper MPB modes of the post-Tropicalia years – all fused ... CD
