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.

A great session from Red Garland – recorded in the early 80s with support from Ahmad Jamal's old trio-mates – Jamil Nassar on bass and Frank Gant on drums!

Red Garland's Piano
Prestige, 1957. Good+
Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own! The album's got a laidback, almost mellow feel that's a bit different from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+
Red's usual trio bag is given a bit of a soul jazz twist (or perhaps we should say "a bit more of a soul jazz twist" since Red's always pretty darn soulful!) – in this set of tracks that has a slight gospel piano sound to it, and which also features Red playing organ on one track! ...

An overlooked 70s gem from Cal Tjader – a sweet little live set recorded in San Francisco, and a solid groover that stands with his better-known 70s live albums for Fantasy!

A strangely varied LP from Stanley – one that features a mix of electric and acoustic piano tunes, mostly all played solo, but with the complexity and depth of imagination that always makes Cowell's work so great.

Not as full on and bombastic as some of Philly Joe's heavy thunder recordings from the late 50s, but a nice album recorded for Galaxy Records at the end of the 70s! The quality of the session is high – as Jones is working here with sidemen that include Slide Hampton, Harold Land, and Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album
