(Promo in a Salsoul sleeve.)

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.

Salsoul, 1981. Very Good
A club/boogie number lifted from Joe's Mestizo album – not really his greatest work, but with a decent enough dancefloor groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good
Not the famous "Ling Ching Tong" tune of doo wop fame, but a new track by Joe from his Latin disco years. The track's got a Salsoul type beat, but Joe's sticking to his Latin soul approach with the lyrics – despite the modern sound of the production and backings. Marty Sheller ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good+
Old school track from Sugar Hill's female trio that does not feature the classic Sugar Hill rhythm section, but instead uses a more synthetic sound, along the lines of maybe the Dazz Band. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Seconds (5:39, 8:40)
Salsoul, 1982. Very Good+
A gem of a disco track – later than most of the Salsoul Orchestra's hits, but handled by Patrick Adams with a soulful groove that makes Loleatta Holloway's vocals come off wonderfully! Remix by Shep Pettibone. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good
Larry Levan worked some incredible magic with Skyy's "Skyzoo" – turning a simple funk tune into a massive bit of dancefloor groove! The cut rolls out with a snapping, chanting beat from the very first note – hitting a nice party funk vibe in the first part, then moving into ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Cotillion, 1982. Very Good+
Featuring Limon Wilson. 12-inch, Vinyl record
WMOT, 1981. Near Mint-
The a-side's not much to write home about – but the b-side's a great one, and one of the best later soul tracks from Barbara Mason! "She's Got The Papers" is a much later entry in the Shirley Brown/Barbara Mason song cycle started way back at the beginning of the 70s – that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1978. Very Good+
What a killer! "Sing Sing" is the lasting classic from Gaz – a disco track mostly, but one that starts out with a tight break, some great guitar, and which really grooves nicely all the way through! 12-inch, Vinyl record
I Wanna Know Your Name/This Feelin
Panorama, 1980. Near Mint-
Frank Hooker and his group take on Philly International with "I Wanna Know Your Name" – all in a homegrown style that's a bit less dramatically soulful than The Blue Notes, but which still has some nice harmony moments on the chorus. "This Feelin" is back to the group's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
20th Century, 1977. Very Good+
A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Paisley Park, 1987. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A double-header of cuts from the Sign O The Times album! "U Got The Look" is presented here in a great extended version, with lots of riffing guitar – and "Housequake" gets a special 7 minute mix, with lots more funky horns overall! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Uptown, 1992. Near Mint-
From the Reminisce LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
