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.

Muse, 1976. Near Mint-
Dom Salvador recorded some killer jazz albums on the Brazilian scene of the 60s – and here, he makes a rare US appearance on a 70s smoker for Muse Records! The album's a wicked blend of Salvador's Brazilian roots with some more fluid American rhythms – maybe even a touch of Latin jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cesar Camargo Mariano & CIA
EMI (Brazil), 1980. Near Mint-
A wonderful set of Brazilian fusion tracks – one of the strongest records cut by keyboard wiz Cesar Camargo Mariano, best known for his amazing arrangement on 70s albums by Elis Regina! Mariano's really at home in the set – playing on Fender Rhodes, Yamaha electric, Echoplex, and other ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. Sealed (reissue)
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barclay (France), 1970. Very Good+
Wonderful work from Baden Powell – cut in the same small group jazz-based mode that he used on his best work for Barclay and MPS! The album's got additional bass, drums, and percussion next to Baden's guitar and vocals – plus additional vocals and flute from the lovely Jeanine De ... LP, Vinyl record album
Saudade
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good
One of the rare Blue Note gems from Brazilian arranger/composer Moacir Santos – an album of incredible warmth and charm, with a sound that's hardly been duplicated again! Santos is usually best known for his early bossa arrangements in the 60s, but here he's working in the US – hitting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Viagem
Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Near Mint-
A pretty cool record from singer Taiguara – an artist who normally worked in more romantic pop formats in Brazil, but who here has caught a bit of the groovy sound that was showing up on some of the excellent Odeon albums at the time. Part of this is thanks to Gaya, who handled the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zumbi
Europa, 1983. Near Mint-
An excellent set of percussion and vocals from this enigmatic Brazilian talent – recorded in Paris, featuring overdubs that led Nana layer percussion over percussion, and play parts of his body and voice along with the drums. The set's got a really spiritual quality – with much more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (France), Early 60s. Very Good
A very cool little package – one side of music from Black Orpheus, the other some live recordings done in Rio! LP, Vinyl record album
Concord/Picante, 1985. Near Mint-
Wild is hardly a word we'd use to describe Tania Maria – mostly because we love her smooth jazzy approach to Brazilian material, one that's been honed to a "T" by this point, but never dampened in enthusiasm and honesty. The set's a great one with a strong acoustic group – ... LP, Vinyl record album
In Person At El Matador
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good
A great little live set from Sergio Mendes and his Brasil 65 group – a pre-Brasil 66 combo that features Wanda De Sah on vocals and Rosinha De Valenca on guitar! The style here is more traditionally Brazilian bossa than Sergio's later work on A&M – a fluidly jazzy groove captured ... LP, Vinyl record album
