12-inch, Vinyl record


4.70 11

Probably the biggest hit that Gary Byrd ever had, and a conscious effort by this DJ/public speaker to compete with the hip hop 12" single. "The Crown" is a 10 minute track that features Byrd rhyming about wisdom, knowlege, and heritage – with instrumental backing by Stevie Wonder, who also contributes a bit of vocals.  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

One of the tracks that would pave the way for Teddy Riley's domination of the radio and charts with his New Jack sound, and the one hit of one hit wonder Johnny Kemp. Maybe it's a bit of nostalgia but we still enjoy giving it a spin now an then! 12-inch, Vinyl record
