12-inch, Vinyl record


Practically the theme song to The Brothers Johnson – a catchy little groover that always holds up! The short mix is 3:33, but the long one spins out over 7 minutes! (Promo in a Disco sleeve.)  © 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.

... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1978. Near Mint-
A nice disco-ish number off the Jacksons' Destiny LP, and though it's not really a skating jam, we do recall this one getting played at the roller rink quite a bit, and this version of the track has a nice breakdown in the middle too. The b-side's a nice midtempo groover. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Hot Butterfly/Fess Up To The Boogie
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
A dancefloor classic! Gregg Diamond was never one of our favorites – but we love the cut "Hot Butterfly", an amazing soulful club groover, with incredible work by Luther Vandross, and a stormin sound that just won't quit! 8 minutes long – and very very nice – presented ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic/Atco, 1978. Very Good+
Ahhhhhhhhhh . . . Freak Out! What can we say? The cut's a monster – silly to be sure, but still with a choppy dancefloor groove that gets 'em every time! Nile Rogers, if you'd only stuck to guitar riffing like this, you'd have become President! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1976. Near Mint-
What a tune – one of our favorite Salsoul tracks ever! "Spring Rain" is a magical blend of strings, beats, and this soaring piano – all coming together in a lush groove that never quits, peppered with some sweet female chorus vocals that never sound cheesy! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Shadybrook, 1977. Near Mint-
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Arista, 1979. Near Mint-

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
20th Century, 1977. Very Good+
A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
MCA, 1995. Near Mint-
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fantasy, 1977. Very Good+
A warm and wonderful groove from Impact – penned by Keith Barrow, and done with a soaring Philly sound, but also some great harmonies too! "Carry Me Back" follows in a very similar spirit – and both cuts are billed here as "special disco mix". 12-inch, Vinyl record
Gold Plate, 1976. Very Good+
Strings, soul, and sweet funky disco – an obscure Tommy Stewart number that's got all the hallmarks of his best work! There's a great little bassline on "Que Pasa" – setting things up with a funky pace as the strings wash in over the top – and the intro grooves along ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
