(Promo. Label has a small stain.)

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.

Midsong, 1978. Very Good+
A huge hit, but a great little number too – one with a sense of darkness that's far stronger than we remember – almost sending a bit of chill down our spine when the trio shout's out the title of the tune! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dance Mania, 1987. Good+
A nice stripped down bit of early Chicago house, super raw drum machine house beats with just a touch of vocals and synth thrown into the mix here and there, by Farley. 12-inch, Vinyl record

West End, Late 70s. Very Good
A wicked split disco single from West End – with 2 great numbers! "You Are The Star" is a nice flanged out disco tune – guitar strutting over strings, with some wonderfully breathy vocals from Jakki! And the flip's even better – a great disco track with a goofy groove ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
West End, 1981. Very Good+ (reissue)
An undisputed classic! The funky grooves of this early 80s single by Taana make it our favorite by her – and it's a non-stop killer that's served up here in a 9 and 6 minute version. Used as the sample for "Buddy" by De La Soul, and for a whole bunch of other tracks too! A ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Uptown/MCA, 1989. Near Mint-
A crucial bit of new jack swing! The cut's one of the first big singles for Teddy Riley's Guy group – and it's got a dark mixture of keyboards washes and punched up beats that signaled a whole new soul sound to come for the next generation! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Uptown/MCA, 1989. Very Good+
"Spend The Night" is lifted from Guy's first album, and pumped up a bit by Teddy Riley – who adds in some great New Jack beats with a really sinister dark edge. 12-inch, Vinyl record
