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.

Sweet 50s vocals from Teddi King – a set that's arranged with a fuller style than her small combo sessions from the time – but which still shows her to be one of the most distinctive singers of her time!

Touch Of Tabasco

A surprisingly great little Latin set from Rosemary Clooney – one that makes us want to forgive her for all her pop takes on the genre in the early 50s!

Life, Love & Harmony
Capitol, 1979. Very Good
A killer from Nancy – very different than most of her earlier work, and proof that she was still growing as an artist on Capitol! The record's arranged and produced by Larry Farrow – who gives the session a jazz funk feel that brings Nancy into a whole mode, a smooth modern one that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moody's Mood
MGM, 1963. Very Good+
A pretty hip album of jazz vocal numbers by Pat Thomas – made even hipper by arrangements from Claus Ogerman and Lalo Schifrin!

Arguably one of the greatest albums ever cut by Jimmy Witherspoon – recorded live at an early Monterey Jazz Festival, and done in a style that shows the strong link between jazz and blues in Jimmy's work!

Bethlehem, 1954. Near Mint- (reissue)
Not the sleepy tunes you might guess from the "lullaby" in the title – but a wonderful collection of early small group material from vocalist Chris Connor! The set's got a very unusual format – in that the group's instrumentation is really different than the regular piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moody Marilyn Moore
Bethlehem, 1957. Near Mint-
A rare and exceptional vocal jazz LP – cut by the obscure Marilyn Moore, then the wife of Al Cohn – who's pictured in profile on the cover of the record! Marilyn's got a style that's somewhat raspy – clearly inspired by Billie Holiday at times, and not what you'd expect in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hangin' Heavy
Buddah, 1979. Very Good
Killer grooves from Black Ivory – a trio who've really come a long way here since their roots – stepping out with proud, soulful tones that are a perfect fit for the upbeat grooves of the set!
