7-inch, Vinyl record

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

A killer electric number from Ramsey – heavy drums scattering around the bottom, electric piano over the top, and a wild groove that has a catchy catchy melody hidden in there somewhere! (In a Columbia sleeve. Label has a small sticker.)  © 1996-2018, 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.

Horse/Love Is All Right
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good-
A classic! "The Horse" is a great 60s instrumental groover that virtually set the tone for the next 10 years of brass instrumentation in soul music! The cut's got a raw TSU Tornadoes or Bar-Kays kind of feel, with a horn line right up front, in a catchy rolling groove that never quits! 7-inch, Vinyl record
St Lawrence, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Classic Chicago soul from Mamie Galore! "It Ain't Necessary" has a rolling party groove that fits Mamie's husky vocal style really well. Monk Higgins is leading the arrangements, and the tracks' got a soaring northern groove that's very nice! "Don't Think" shows off Mamie's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
More, More, More (parts 1 & 2)
Buddah, 1976. Very Good+
The porn star who became a chart act – and thanks to some very skillful help from Gregg Diamond, who wrote, produced, and arranged the cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fraternity/Undercover Brother, Early 70s. Near Mint- (reissue)
Rare early 70s soul from Cinci! "Doon-Chang" by the female vocal combo 4 Jades has a little bit of a psych funk vibe going on thanks to the guitars – with a funky bassline prominent in the mix, some sax, nicely -grooving organ and solid drums. Still, it's the voices that shine the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Al & The Kidd, Early 80s. Near Mint- (reissue)
A sweet bit of GoGo funk from the early 80s – a tune that's nice and lean overall, with a vibe that almost mixes in some electro soul as well – thanks to some heavy beats at the bottom, sweet bassline in the middle, and nice keyboard washes on the top! All instrumental, with a good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Where Did I Go/I Can't Do Enough For You Baby
Record Shack (Austria), Late 60s. Near Mint-
A funky killer from The Imperial Showband – maybe the best tune we've ever heard from the group! Tommy Tate is on vocals, but even before he comes into the mix the cut burns with this excellent funky vibe – snapping drums and burning organ that are made even better by Tate's raspy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Groove Yard (jukebox EP)
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Ah for the genius of the Montgomery Brothers – a sweet combo from the Indy scene that featured Wes Montgomery alongside brothers Monk and Buddy! Wes is on guitar, natch, Buddy plays piano, Monk bass, and Bobby Thomas joins the group on drums – all grooving in a style that's a bit like ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
