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.

Delirium In Hi Fi
Columbia, 1957. Near Mint-
A lost Hi Fi gem! Released in America under the name of "Elsa Popping & Her Pixieland Band" – the record is actually stunning collaboration between French orchestra leader Andre Popp and sound effects wizard Pierre Fatosme. The sound is wild and swinging, with a feel that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pagan Festival
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
One of the few good exotica albums to ever come out on Columbia, and a nice set of orchestral pieces, with a slight eastern tinge, and the kind of arrangements that were being used by Les Baxter over at Capitol. A number of tracks have a groovy vocal chorus – and titles include "Temple ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sounds Of Love
A/S, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
Breathy, sexy pop stuff from 101 Strings, featuring a nice remake of "Je T'Aime...Moi, Non Plus", with vocals by Bebe Bardon. Sexy gatefold package, too, and very different than their other records. More of a sexy easy pop sound than usual, with covers of "This Guy's In Love With ... LP, Vinyl record album

Exotica Vol 2
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Happening!
Command, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
Groovy stuff from Dick Hyman – played on the electric harpsichord, which has a very groovy sound! Hyman handles the instrument like a pro, and although the record isn't as totally wild as his moog LPs, it's very cool stuff with a great 60s sound. Tracks include "Lady Fingers", ...

Environments–Disc 4
Atlantic, Early 70s. Very Good+
Two rainy bits: "Ultimate Thunderstorm" and "Gentle Rain in a Pine Forest". The sticker on the front says "Contains Synthetic Silence", whatever that is. As the notes say, play at any speed, for different psychological effects. LP, Vinyl record album
Double Impact
RCA, 1960. Very Good
Second set of swinging tracks, very much in the same vein as Buddy Morrow's crime jazz soundtracks cut for RCA at the end of the 50s! More great TV themes from the time, running the gamut from action and thriller series to westerns and dramas, including "Men Into space", "Staccato's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lotus Palace
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
An insane crazy mix of "eastern" instrumentation (sitars, tablas, etc) with groovy pop sounds of the late 60's – a perfect album in the Verve tradition, with some wonderful jazzy touches! Alan Lorber set the whole thing up – and peppered it with some great instrumentation, ... LP, Vinyl record album
