Dusty Groove

Chicago, IL

Funk, soul, African, Brazilian, Latin, hip-hop, jazz, and disco are the specialties of this Chicago powerhouse — easily the finest shop of its kind in the United States. Rarities and imports are lingua franca here, be they lovingly packaged rarities compilations from Japan or original pressings of LPs Afrika Bambaataa spun at South Bronx block parties in the mid-'70s. Great service and thoroughness of selection is Dusty Groove's trademark, and while its website has been a boon to body movers around the world for well over a decade, there's nothing like visiting in person.
