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 dizzying, intense and passionate display of Haitian street music – the vibrant, percussive and passionate work of Rara music, recorded by Soul Jazz in Port-Au-Prince – an exciting and eye-opening blend of shouted vocals, metal horn and hollow plastic pipe blowing and clattering drums! ... CD
The title gets it right, because the show is a live jam session between some of the biggest names in music from Mali – including Keletigui Diabate on balafon, Djelimady Tounkara on guitar, Madina Ndiaye on kora, and Habib Koite on vocals. The tracks here are all relatively loose and ... CD
Amazingly rootsy work – much of it played on homemade instruments, and all recorded relatively recently by Moya Aliya Malamusi in Malawi! Despite the contemporary nature of the recordings, though, the sound is quite timeless – a spare, highly rhythmic mode that varies strongly from ... CD
Spare duets between guitarist N'Gou Bagayoko and vocalist Filifin. The album's got a nice rootsy feel – recorded mostly on location in Mali by Frederic Galliano. As with other of Galliano's Frikyiwa productions, the album has a bright consciousness that transcends its roots, yet firmly ... CD
The brilliant follow up to the first Congotronics album – and a set that goes even deeper than the initial groundbreaking work by Konono! This album follows in a very similar spirit to Konono's Congotronics set – and like that one, focuses on musicians with a unique electro/acoustic ... CD
Swirling Afro soul from Matata – with lots of African rhythms and heavy percussion laced with some trippy elements from the psychedelic scenes in the US and UK! Matana arrived in London, via their native Kenya in the early 70s – and rather seamlessly blended elements of soul, and on ... CD
