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.

Cold Chillin, 1993. Very Good (pic cover)
Pic-sleeve issue of what we think of as Kane's last nice Cold Chillin' single with two tracks from Kane's "Looks Like A Job For..." LP, the a-side asking the question we've asked of too many MC's. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1983. Very Good (pic cover)
Unlike some other old-school pioneers Fearless Four were able to move to a bigger label without trying to cross over. The best track here is the Fearless Freestyle, a 6 minute track that reminds us of their early hits like "Rockin It" on Enjoy. "F-4000" is a nice ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1991. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Nice pic sleeve 12" single with some good remix material, plus the album version of one of their best tracks. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Loud, 1996. Near Mint-
Unlike too many hip hop groups that break up, only to have each individual MC release a lot of weak material, Sadat X stays on track with production by Showbiz and Diamond D. If you ever thought that Brand Nubian was all about Grand Puba, Sadat's verses on these two overlooked cuts will remind you ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Cold Chillin, 1993. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Probably Kane's last nice single, asking the question we've asked of too many MC's. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Jive, 1986. Very Good+
Original "dirty" version of one of the first tracks they needed to push with a clean radio one! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Jive/Schoolly D, 1989. Very Good+ (pic cover)
On these two, Schoolly D still has the same delivery that made his earlier records so dope, but the lyrics and production are not quite up to par. "Gucci Again" is just a new, inferior version of his classic "Gucci Time." 12-inch, Vinyl record
