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.

Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael hit the hip hop era – taking the funky disco grooves of the Bumblebee Unlimited group, and turning them on a sort of old school party cut, with a bit of that Sound Of New York feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA, 1978. Very Good
Two nice ones from the smooth soul team of Grey & Hanks! "Dancin" is an uptempo groover – as you'd guess by the title – but with a smooth sound that keeps the proceedings nice and soulful. "How Can You Life" is a mellower tune – a nice little stepper with ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Grand Royal, 1999. Sealed
One of Grand Royal's string of essential singles in the "Blow Up Factor" series. We liked Lif's earlier singles, but here moves up the lyrics and production a few notches. The production on "Farmhand" has probably the dopest use of a banjo (?) loop, using a sample from the Who' ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
