(In a TK 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.

TK, 1979. Near Mint-
What can we say? "Ring My Bell" was one of the biggest crossover disco tracks of the late 70s – with a cool electronic groove on the beat, and lyrics and production by Frederick Knight, making the southern soul singer one of the more unlikely disco forces of the time. This 12" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
AVI, 1980. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Back in the day, Chicago never had much of a rap scene – which is why it was so easy for Chicago radio DJ Casper to score big with this little groover on the AVI label! The cut's actually not bad as sort of a funky clubby track – and Casper's rapping style reminds us a lot of Gary Byrd ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
I Wanna Know Your Name/This Feelin
Panorama, 1980. Near Mint-
Frank Hooker and his group take on Philly International with "I Wanna Know Your Name" – all in a homegrown style that's a bit less dramatically soulful than The Blue Notes, but which still has some nice harmony moments on the chorus. "This Feelin" is back to the group's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
TK, 1979. Very Good
Great work from this excellent ensemble funk outfit! "Dance Sing Along" has a perfectly tight sound that always makes our jaw drop – complete with an electric jazzy riff that feels like it was lifted for the first Tribe Called Quest album, and harmony vocals that hold together in ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
TK, 1980. Very Good
A great bit of party funk – even if it's missing Blowfly's vocals! The track's an excellent groover that steps along in a real old school groove – stretched out with snapping beats and lots of guitar and keyboard touches, plus crowd noises, and some occasional vocalizations from Blow ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1978. Very Good+
What a killer! "Sing Sing" is the lasting classic from Gaz – a disco track mostly, but one that starts out with a tight break, some great guitar, and which really grooves nicely all the way through! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1982. Near Mint-
A killer single from Trouble Funk, on Sugar Hill, with the band's trade mark percussive riffing, and as you'd expect from go go, loads of nice fills and breakdowns all centered around a fat rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1980. Very Good+
A great track from Roy Ayers – and one that's often overlooked! The cut's a smooth mellow stepper, with a nice jazzy vibe, and a wonderful monologue from Roy at the beginning (he's trying to pick up a girl). The cut got kind of buried on the Love Fantasy LP – so it's extra nice to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1983. Sealed (pic cover)
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Liberty, 1981. Sealed (pic cover)
Early 80s slap bass funk – of the sort that was showing up on the Liberty label at the time, and which here comes across pretty well. The best cut is "Love Is On The One", which has a catchy sing-song groove, and a very nice hook. Both tracks from the Point of Pleasure LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Cotillion, 1982. Very Good+
Featuring Limon Wilson. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Uno Melodic, 1982. Very Good+
A nice jazzy groover from Roy – lifted off his Uno Melodic LP, and offered here in long and short versions! The track's kind of up there with some of Roy's nice dancefloor tracks from the late 70s on Polydor – and it's one of the few 12" singles you'll ever find by him! 12-inch, Vinyl record
