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, 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.

Hot Wax, Early 70s. Very Good+
Their funky rock hit from the early 70's, laid out here in the original version. Covered by Charles Earland, and so many others, still has a nice AM radio groove in the original. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bell, Early 70s. Very Good
An excellent rare one! The cut's got a nice hard choppy groove, with a sort of electric feel to it, and the kind of funk sound that reminds us of groups like Manzel. Mr. Penguin talks over the top, and the band vamps underneath with lots of fuzzy guitar and organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Glades, 1972. Near Mint-
2 of Timmy's best early cuts, together on one original 45! "Why Can't We Live Together" is a breathtakingly sad and eerie song – spare electric drumbeats, moody keyboards, and one of the greatest mellow soul lyrics ever! "Funky Me" isn't that funky – but is still ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
ABC, 1975. Near Mint-
Nice single of one of Ike's biggest hits after his Stax years – a heavy hot buttered groove, and the instrumental is a good take on the club classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Killer funky! "Hot Pants" is one of James' pivotal tracks from the early 70s – and as you'll hear on this 3-part version, he'd totally perfected his masterful recording style of endless non-stop party grooves. The band keeps on playing for a very long time, and each part stands as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good+
A classic! "Mr Big Stuff" is Jean's enduring classic – a tight little groover with a hip feminist message, sampled by Schoolly D and others over the years, but equally wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good+
Classic Northern soul groover! "Boogaloo Down Broadway" is Johnny's greatest legacy in soul music – and it's backed here by "Look What Love Can Make You Do", a track that insanely borrows just about every element of the backing of the hit a-side! The intro's the same, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Cry To Me/So Can I
Aware, 1973. Near Mint-
Quite possibly one of the greatest southern soul singles of all time! Sure, you know Loleatta best for her disco work – but "Cry To Me" is a wonderful weepy ballad, done with these haunting strings that literally "cry" with the song, and written by Sam Dees with that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great one from Jimmy! "Back On The Track" has a hokey title that makes it sound like a Jimmy Smith tune from the early 60s – but it's got a slow, spacey funky organ groove that feels like it's lifted right off of Brother Jack McDuff's sublime Moon Rappin album! Great slow ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
