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.

Heart Heart (voc, inst)
Prism, 1981. Very Good+
A snapping bass pedal-driven number by Geraldine Hunt – done in that loping midtempo groove that always suited her vocals the best! There's almost a clapping sort of roller skating style to the track – especially in the way that the lyrics and chorus change the key slightly – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Not quite the bass heavy 80s groove that would put the Gap Band on the map, but an uptempo disco track on one side and a slick commercial R&B track on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Runaway (14 mixes)
A&M, 1995. Very Good 2x12"
A boatload of mixes of this Janet Jackson track, one of her more commercial numbers, but given some nice spins by Steve Silk Hurley and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. 14 different mixes seems like they're going a bit overboard, but we're not complaining: "G Man's Hip Hop Mix feat. Coolio" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1979. Very Good+
Nice stuff! The title track to Venus' Night Rider album is remixed here by Jim Burgess – with a good spare club groove, and some nice congas on the intro, plus he works with Patrick Adams on the flip side for another jazzy club bumber! 12-inch, Vinyl record
