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.

Patented By Edison
Roulette, Early 60s. Near Mint-
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Harry Edison – small group material cut with Jimmy Forrest on tenor and Tommy Flanagan on piano! The tracks are short, but pack a lot of punch – and the main focus is on Edison's raspy tone and well-placed notes – nothing fancy, but great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Message From Newport
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good
Sure, it's Maynard – but he's got a pretty nice group on the record! Even at a young age, he surrounded himself with great talent – and the ensemble on this one features Slide Hampton, Don Sebesky, Willie Maiden, and Jimmie Ford – all strong players who make the record wail a lot ...

No Coast Jazz
Roulette, Mid 60s. Very Good
Great stuff! This fantastic lost John Handy album for Roulette, like his others, stands as some of the finest unknown jazz of the 60s. These records are always (unfortunately) passed by in the racks, but don't make the same mistake! Handy's alto is honed to a razor sharp point, fresh from his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, Mid 60s. Very Good
One of the few beautiful early albums cut by John Handy for Roulette – and an obscure session that has him playing alto with a quartet that includes a young Walter Bishop Jr. on piano. Handy here is fresh from his work with Mingus – and his alto is filled with fire and emotion, yet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, 1958. Very Good
One of the lesser-remembered Basie sessions for Roulette – but one of the best ones too! The album follows nicely in the "dance" style of Basie's earlier albums for Clef – by offering a set of work that was typical of that the group might have performed on one of their more ...

Organ Shindig
Roulette, 1965. Good+
Groovy instrumentals from the great Dave Baby Cortez – all played with that tightness he brought to the organ in the 60s – a style of playing that paired down the modes the instrument had in jazz, and paved the way for countless others to help bring organ sounds to soul, rock, and other ...

Hot Dog
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
From the title, to the cover, to the gritty grooves way down in the wax – this has got to be one of the funkiest Blue Note albums ever – a real landmark from the legendary Lou Donaldson! The set kicks off with a hard and heavy groove from the very first note – thanks to some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Comin' Through
Capitol, 1977. Very Good+
Sweet smooth and funky work from Eddie Henderson – a nice move from his more righteous work of the mid 70s, into an R&B-tinged sound that would take him far in years to come! The sound is surprisingly great, and still pretty darn righteous – thanks to some great production by Skip ... LP, Vinyl record album

Giants Of The Organ Come Together
Groove Merchant, 1973. Very Good+
Twin organs back to back – and a heck of a hard-wailing set from Groove Holmes and Jimmy McGriff! The album cooks from the very first note – and features long tunes that open up with the same sort of solo-heavy approach that you'd get on Holmes' Prestige albums of the 60s – very ...
