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.

Mars, Early 50s. Very Good- 2 x 7"
Great 50s work from Woody Herman – one of his lively sets for the Mars label! Features trumpet from Stu Williamson, trombone from Carl Fontana, and piano from Nat Pierce – and even a few great vocal leads from Woody himself! Great cover too. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Casablanca, 1974. Very Good
"Up For The Down Stroke" is one of our favorites by Parliament – a romping funky track with a mofo of a hook, and a catchy chorus you'll be humming for years! "Presence" is a lot more tripped out – with rumbling Funkadelic bass, and some very trippy vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Date, Late 60s. Very Good
The Steelers were one of the best Chicago soul groups of the late 60s – but they never really cut an album, and issued only a handful of great singles for different labels. This one's one of their best – and it features nice production by Al Smith and Calvin Carter of Vee Jay fame. ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fruit Song/Hit & Run
Casablanca, 1976. Near Mint-
"The Fruit Song" is one of Jeannie Reynolds' best cuts, and it's definitely the track that she'll be remembered for long after her career is over. The cut's got a sweet mellow two-step groove, and some very goofy lyrics about fruit! Nice sweet and souful, with a very sexy sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Two good mellow soul cuts from one of his great Atlantic albums. "Groovin" is a bit uptempo, but "You Turned Me On" is a great soul cut. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Disco To Go/When You're Gone
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
The title says "disco", but the track is prime P-Funk all the way! Lots of nice bass work at the bottom, and a trio of female vocals keeping things real over the top – and really getting the most out of George Clinton's funky hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record

No Label, 1969. Very Good- (pic cover)

Slaves (voc, inst)
Skye, Early 70s. Near Mint-
The tune's kind of a slow-building soul track – making good use of Grady's baritone vocals to give the tune a nice solid feel. The instrumental by Gary McFarland is actually even better – starting slow, but then hitting some nice funkier jazz parts in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, Late 60s. Very Good
Killer funky stuff from JB, and just about everything you'd want from him: hard grooves, heavy politics, and lots of nice funky playing by the band! Also the inspiration for the great Talkin' Loud label! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Som Livre (Brazil), 1982. Very Good- (pic cover)
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
