(In a Sugar Hill sleeve.)

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

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.

Sugar Hill, 1980. Very Good
Super rare test press of the classic groover from the Sugarhill Gang – one based around the excellent "Daisy Lady" sample from 7th Wonder! The track makes great use of the original's brassy horns – inflecting a bright, almost Latiny finish on the tune – all to set the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Celluloid, 1983. Near Mint-
One of the better Afrika Bambatta/Bill Laswell collaborations. The more bass-heavy funk side of the Zulu Nation sound with live horns and bass, a little Go Go influence, and a more chanting vocal style than straight ahead rhymes.. Produced by Afrika Bambaataa and Material, featuring Bill Laswell ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chicago's Earatik Statik returns with a couple of nice tracks – featuring top shelf production by Diamond D and the Opus!

Ruthless, 1988. Near Mint-
What can we say? Just try to imagine what hip hop would be like today if this record never existed.The foundation of the sound that would rule hip hop throughout the 90s. Nice production from Dre, back when he was dropping more funk-sample based tracks, and plenty of attitude on the mic from Cube, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Geffen, 1995. Very Good+
The first solo single from the Genius after Wu-tang. OK, he did solo stuff on Cold Chillin, but we're not really countin' that. The verses on "Labels" string together the names of most of the larger hip hop labels for a tale of industry rule #4080. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Epic, Mid/Late 70s. Very Good
A hard-to-find single that features 2 of Heatwave's best tracks! "Ain't No Half Steppin" is from their first LP – and it's a great little funk number that was sampled to big big fame by Big Daddy Kane, and which has become a funky favorite ever since! "Mind Blowing ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
