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.

World Of Charlie Byrd
Columbia, 1960s/1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The world of Charlie Byrd is a pretty darn groovy one – as you'll hear on this sweet collection of 60s sides, pulled together for a double-length Columbia compilation! Byrd first started out as one of the early American guitarists to recognize the possibilities of bossa nova – mixing ... LP, Vinyl record album
More Brazilian Byrd
Columbia, 1967. Very Good
Features Charlie's guitar over some larger arrangements – in a smooth batch of pop bossa that includes "Jequibau", "Agua De Beber", "Berimbau", "Little Boat (O Barquinho)", "How Insensitive", "Pretty Butterfly", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz At The Showboat
Offbeat, Early 60s. Very Good
Very early work from Charlie Byrd – a cool little record that has him playing at his home turf of the Showboat club in DC, and working with a group that includes a fair bit of horn players! The style's quite different than Byrd's better-known Brazilian work of the 60s, or his lusher large ... LP, Vinyl record album
Byrd Song
Riverside, 1965. Near Mint-
An unusual set that prefaces Charlie's recordings for Columbia – a trio side that also adds in chorus vocals on a number of cuts, creating a nice warm pillowy backdrop that's a perfect juxtaposition to Charlie's spare and raspy sound on the acoustic guitar. And just because we use "pillo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Byrd
Milestone, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A collection that Milestone issued in 1973 that includes tracks from three of Byrd's early 60s Bossa Nova records – Latin Impressions, Bossa Nova Pelos Passaros and Once More/Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova. Byrd and his unamplified guitar are joined by Keter Betts on bass and Bill Reichenbach on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Impressions
Riverside, Early 60s. Near Mint-
The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nippon Soul
Riverside, 1963. Very Good
A swingin' Japanese concert by one of Cannonball's best groups from the 60's. Joe Zawinul's on piano, brother Nat's on cornet, Sam Jones is on bass, and Louis Hayes is on drums. But the real treat here is Yusef Lateef, who does some excellent reed work on tenor, flute, and oboe – and who's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Circle Waltz
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint-
A great little set from Friedman – a vastly underrated pianist who's working here as a bright young modernist in a trio with Chuck Israels on bass and Pete LaRoca on drums. The tracks have a freedom that reminds us a lot of Bill Evans' early work, with a warm lyricism that never gets too ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kelly Blue
Riverside, 1959. Sealed
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album
Know What I Mean?
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
Beautiful early work from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that's quite different than most of his better known sets from the time! The album's more spare and stripped-down than usual – with Cannon's alto in a quartet alongside Bill Evans on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Connie Kay ... LP, Vinyl record album
