(US pressing. Cover has some wear.)

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.

Sutra, 1982. Very Good
A wicked little track that's a real classic from the electro years – a tune that vamps along with great bass and keyboards, but which also features some soulful vocals over the top alongside the electronics! The tune's got a hook that just won't quit – and a groove that's perfect for a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Curtom, 1978. Very Good+
One of Curtis Mayfield's attempts to crack the dancefloor during the late 70s. The song's got an uptempo groove, and moves along at a fast pace, with lots of strings and percussion in a warm clubby groove. Curtis' voice is still in nice shape, though – and there's some moments to the track ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol, 1982. Very Good
One of George Clinton's biggest hits – and probably his last gasp on the charts in a major way. The cut's a logical extension of late 70s P-Funk – with more of the bass-popping 80s grooves and electro touches that Clinton had inspired in so many other funky groups at the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Just In Time/Kick It Out
TEC, Late 70s. Very Good+
Pre-Mercury work by Heaven & Earth – cut with a sound that's a bit rougher, but still pretty darn nice! The group exhibit their strength in both the ensemble funk mode and the group harmony style – and the single's a nice piece of the puzzle for their early career! 12-inch, Vinyl record
