(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.

Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+
Sarah Vaughan's most stripped-down session – a record that really does just have "plus 2" added to the lady's lovely vocals!

Lonely Hours
Roulette, 1964. Very Good

Colpix, 1959. Very Good+

Capitol, 1962. Very Good

Roulette, 1963. Very Good
Joe Williams is away from Count Basie here, but he's still sounding great – and getting a slightly warmer approach overall – in keeping with the promise of the title!

Where Did Everybody Go?
Capitol, 1963. Very Good
A nice moody one from Nat's later years – with arrangements by Gordon Jenkins, and unusual titles that include "No I Don't Want Her", "Where Did Everybody Go", "If Love Ain't There", "Someone To Tell It To", and "I Keep Goin Back To Joe's". LP, Vinyl record album
