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.
A haunting 1971 session by Nara Leao – and one that has a moody European take on the bossa! Part of the album was recorded in Paris, and it's got a dreamy quality that evokes 70s recordings by some of our favorite European singers – particularly some of the more sophisticated ones on ... CD
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with ... CD
A beautifully understated album from the legendary Nara Leao – done as a tribute to the bossa generation, with key help from the great Roberto Menescal – who handles the arrangements, plays guitar behind Nara's lovely vocals! Given that Nara's groundbreaking work of the late 60s was ... CD
An amazing little record – a 70s session that we'd easily rank right up there with the best recordings ever from Joyce, but one that's only being issued here for the first time ever! The sound is brilliant – that beautiful mix of strong and sweet that you'll always find when Joyce is ... CD
Bebel Gilberto's certainly one to keep her public waiting in the space between each new record – but she always makes the wait worthwhile by coming up with something new! The sound here is again something different than her previous two albums – somewhat electric, but also fairly ... CD
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums of the 60s – a classic session produced for Verve by Creed Taylor, and featuring sweet gentle arrangements from Marty Paich, co-arranged with Antonio Carlos Jobim, who also plays guitar on the session next to the piano of Joao Donato! That's a ... CD
Although only a few years old, this one's by now a seminal work in the new tradition of modern bossa grooves – the start of the Zirigbum label, and it's tradition of taking new and old bossa talents, and fusing a sound that's become quite popular over the years! The group's led by Marcio ... CD
A really great take on the classic Herbie Hancock sound of the Blue Note years – led by Japanese drummer George Kawaguchi, but featuring some great work by Americans Donald Harrison on alto and tenor sax, Terence Blanchard on trumpet, and Cyrus Chestnut on piano. The tracks are short and ... CD
Solid 80s grooving from George Duke – a really tightly-crafted set, done in the sweet mix of jazz and soul that he virtually helped to invent during the 70s! There's a gentle soulfulness to the record that we really like – a quality that's surprising, given the date, and the fact that ... CD
