(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)

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.

Chet Baker & Crew
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good+
Killer work from the late 50's by Chet! Although Baker's trumpet playing in the early part of the decade became known as one of the trademark "cool" sounds of the west coast, he started to move towards a sound that was a lot more hardbop at the end of the decade – as you'll hear on ...

Hot Dog
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint-
From the title, to the cover, to the gritty grooves way down in the wax – this has got to be one of the funkiest Blue Note albums ever – a real landmark from the legendary Lou Donaldson! The set kicks off with a hard and heavy groove from the very first note – thanks to some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Traditionalism Revisited
World Pacific, 1957. Very Good
Beautifully modernist material from the great Brookmeyer – performing here with a well-suited group that features Jimmy Giuffre and Jim Hall, plus the great Dave Bailey on drums. The album features older tracks done in a surprisingly fresh style, and the trio of lead players dance around ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soft Samba
Verve, 1964. Sealed Gatefold
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Bird
America (France), 1970. Near Mint-
A great French session by Charles Mingus – with a lineup that includes Charles McPherson on alto, Bobby Jones on tenor, Eddie Preston on trumpet, and Jaki Byard on piano! Three tracks, including the great reading of Bird's "Blue Bird" on side 2, and a lengthy take of his own "R ... LP, Vinyl record album
Good
A completely random assortment of 12" records – both LPs and singles – some in good shape, some totally beat up! We make these boxes at random, and seal them tightly – and even we don't know what's in them. Keep in mind that this vinyl has been through the regular racks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Coral
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
A fairly straight album of piano tracks for Liberty, but with a subtle Polynesian feel to it. The cover would imply more, though – since it's got a beautiful underwater shot of an exotic looking model hiding behind some coral! Titles include "Hana", "Black Coral", "M ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brother Brother Brother
T Neck, 1972. Very Good+
An amazing record! This one's probably our favorite Isley Brothers album of all time – and it's a perfect blend of all the styles they were into at the time – heavy funk, sweet soul, folksy rock, and rolling uptempo grooves! The Brothers handle all styles equally well, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brass Construction II
United Artists, 1976. Very Good-
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic! The first one was totally great, but they cast a wider stylistic claim on II – their trademark funky sound is still very firmly in place, but they bring more to ... LP, Vinyl record album
