(Promo in a Salsoul 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.

Salsoul, 1981. Very Good
A club/boogie number lifted from Joe's Mestizo album – not really his greatest work, but with a decent enough dancefloor groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Salsoul, 1981. Very Good
Not the famous "Ling Ching Tong" tune of doo wop fame, but a new track by Joe from his Latin disco years. The track's got a Salsoul type beat, but Joe's sticking to his Latin soul approach with the lyrics – despite the modern sound of the production and backings. Marty Sheller ... 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
Seconds (5:39, 8:40)
Salsoul, 1982. Very Good+
A gem of a disco track – later than most of the Salsoul Orchestra's hits, but handled by Patrick Adams with a soulful groove that makes Loleatta Holloway's vocals come off wonderfully! Remix by Shep Pettibone. 12-inch, Vinyl record
TK, 1977. Very Good
Hit work from the legendary Peter Brown – a key player in far more club sides than we can remember, but a real chart-topper with this one! You may know the a-side, which is offered here in a nice long take with a drum break in the middle – but don't miss "Burning Love", which ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
MAW, 1995. Very Good+
The first release on their MAW imprint, from Kenny Dope ("Ken") and Little Louie Vega ("lou"), with a great percolating cut on the a-side, that epitomizes the sound we called "underground" around here, and a harmonica laced club stomper on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good
Larry Levan worked some incredible magic with Skyy's "Skyzoo" – turning a simple funk tune into a massive bit of dancefloor groove! The cut rolls out with a snapping, chanting beat from the very first note – hitting a nice party funk vibe in the first part, then moving into ... 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
Bang, 1977. Very Good-
Nice 12" single pressing of the classic "Dusic", a great electric funk groover, made famous by a million west coast hip hop samples! The single also features the long version of the track! 12-inch, Vinyl record
DMC (UK), 1990. Near Mint- (pic cover)
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
A sweet funky club track, with a great jazzy style that reminds us a lot of work at the time by Don Blackman or Bernard Wright! The cut's got a groove that sort of mixes P-Funk and early 80s groove – with some very nice keyboards and riffing guitars, topped off by some wonderfully sweet ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
