Run-DMC — Run-DMC ... LP 19.99

The classic self-titled LP that changed hip hop (and much of modern pop) forever! There's little we can add to the canon for this record. Run DMC ushered in a new era in contemporary urban culture, a harder hitting style of rap the bust out of the inner cities and into consciousness of an entire generation. You can literally call this album revolutionary, something only a handful of artists can ever hope to achieve. Amazing! Tracks include "It's Like That", "Sucker MC's", "Rock Box", "Jay's Game", "Hard Times", "30 Days", "Hollis Crew", "Wake Up", and "It's Like That".  © 1996-2017, 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.

It's the mid 80s, but this later Kurtis Blow LP still has a couple of all right cuts, like "If I Ruled The World", "Super Sperm" and "AJ Meets Davy DMX", plus 8 more, including "Summertime Groove", "AJ Is Cool" and 'Respect To The King". LP, Vinyl record album
BMG/RCA, 1988. Very Good
Too Short's follow up to Born To Mack, with the same raw, stripped down Bay Area vibe.

Still sounds great today, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy Boy, 1991. Very Good+
Queen Latifah's second album – still very much in the prime of her early hip hop career! Latifah's got some great help here – and is working with beats by the 45 King, Naughty By Nature, K Cut of Main Source, and an incorrectly credited Louie Vega – all of whom bring some sharper ...

How can you resist an album with a picture of a baby on the cover with his hands and face covered in tattoos?! The ascendancy of Lil Wayne to the top of the rap game is proof positive that not only does the South rule 00s hip hop, but the streets too. 8 tracks on this double vinyl edition of the ...

Second LP from the best MC of the second generation of the Wu Tang family, or at least the most cerebral. This album surprised us, with more energy in the production and vocals than his previous LP, and really a sound that's hardly in the Wu camp at all – as the title suggests, there's lots ...
