(Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'". Cover has a bit of pen on back.)

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.

Folk Songs A La King
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+
One of the most obscure albums from Morgana King – who looks surprisingly young and sexy on the cover – still much more jazz than folk, and with very spare backing that just features Chuck Wayne on guitar and Ernie Furtado on bass! LP, Vinyl record album

Blues Is Now
Verve, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold
A much groovier set than usual from vocalist Jimmy Witherspoon – thanks to some great backing from the combo of organist Jack McDuff, which also includes guitar from a young Melvin Sparks! The sound here is definitely in keeping with the "blues" in the title – but McDuff's ... LP, Vinyl record album

For Those In Love
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good-
Excellent small group jazz work from Dinah – of the sort that's often quite tough to find on vinyl, and which represents some of her best work of all time! The album's got a good group of Mercury jazz players – like Clark Terry, Paul Quinichette, Cecil Payne, Wynton Kelly, and Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1973. Very Good
Obscure bit of spiritual soul by Wayne Davis, who also recorded another record for the Black Fire label (home of Oneness of Juju). Roberta Flack guests on this album, and gives him the thumbs up in the notes on the back, and the whole thing's got the same sort of jazzy soul feel of her first album ... LP, Vinyl record album

JR Monterose
Blue Note, 1956. Near Mint-
The only Blue Note album ever recorded by JR Monterose – one of the more enigmatic figures of the 50s scene! Montrose was a brilliant player, with a tone and a solo conception that were very unique – but he lapsed in relative obscurity, due to the fact that he had a penchant for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1961. Near Mint-
An album that's as evocative as its title – one that features a young Barry Harris stepping out with the kind of sound that first got him noticed right away! There's a bit of a bop influence in the way he hits the keys on the set, but the overall approach is often more lyrically soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Loleatta (1973)
GRC/Aware, 1973. Very Good+
A beautiful early album by Loleatta, and one that was recorded shortly before the Hotlanta Sound turned into a stone disco groove. The record's proof that Loleatta was as great a soul singer as she was a disco diva, and the arrangements by Mike Terry do a great job of bringing out all the emotion ... LP, Vinyl record album
