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.

Nothing But The Truth
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1988. Very Good+
One of Ruben Blades' key crossover efforts of the 80s – and an album that has him stepping far from the salsa ghetto of the 70s, into a much wider range of styles! Most of the lyrics here are in English – as on other Blades from the time – and although the instrumentation echoes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Azteca
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A crowning moment for the west coast Latin scene in the 70s – a wonderful Bay Area set that brings together some of the best talents working on that scene at the time! The set's got a great blend of modes – Latin soul, touches of funk, and plenty of the jazzy inflections you'd expect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cotique, Late 60s. Sealed
One of a few albums recorded by the enigmatic vocalist Lupo – a strangely-voiced singer with a trill sound that's as compelling as his name! The album's mostly a straight ahead Latin set with a good range of material handled in traditional fashion, but it does feature one great Latin Soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tico, Late 50s. Very Good+
There's been more than a few excellent Latin sets based upon the work of Irving Berlin – but this album may well be the finest! Machito's in top top form here, working in that late 50s heavy-jazz mode that we treasure from some of his best Tico/Roulette albums – and the all-instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

EGC, 1975. Very Good
Tight salsa from El Gran Combo – and a record that has a slightly different feel than some of their other 70s efforts, thanks to a bit of added tres! The guitar-like instrument brings a nice sense of tradition to the record – that nod back to the roots of Latin that other 70s groups ... LP, Vinyl record album

Obscure Ornette quartet LP for Impulse, featuring him, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and his son Ornette Denardo (at 12) on drums. 4 tracks featuring prime middle-period playing by Ornette, including "C.O.D.", "New York", and "Bells and Chimes". Ornette also plays ... LP, Vinyl record album

Autobiography
Atlantic, 1965. Near Mint-
A gem of a record from Nat Adderley – filled with short soulful groovers, and done with an upbeat vibe that rivals some of Cannonball's best of the 60s! Joe Zawinul handled the arrangements, so there's definitely a strong influence here from the Cannon group – and although the players ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carryin' On
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint-
One of Grant Green's late great funky albums for Blue Note! Carryin' On is a solid groover with heavy jazz funk grooves that won't stop, and that vibe carries all the way throughout – in the same mode as some of Lou Donaldson's classic sounds from the time! The group features Idris ... LP, Vinyl record album
