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.

The last album that Ismael Miranda cut with Orchestra Harlow – but an extremely strong effort that draws from all the great work they did together! Larry Harlow's still very firmly at the helm of the set – producing, arranging, and playing piano with the classic Orchestra Harlow lineup ... CD
The mighty Apollo Sound combo at the height of their powers – hard-hitting on percussion, but also sparkling with some jazzier touches on tenor sax, flute, and trombone! Roberto Roena had a slightly looser groove than some of his contemporaries, and as you'll hear on this set, there's space ... CD
Sweet strings and sophisticated soul – a wonderful combination in the hands of Cheo Feliciano, who sounds equally great here on both mellow and upbeat material! The self-produced record shows a growing sense of grace and power in Cheo's music – and working here with musical directors ... CD
A hokey cover but a really classic album from Hector Lavoe – one of his biggest records of the 70s, and a great mix of modes that showcases the full range of his talents! The standout number here is the 10 minute groover "El Cantate" – a driving salsa tune penned by Ruben ... CD
