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.

RCA, 1962. Sealed
Elmer Bernstein handled the score for this steamy Hal Wallis romance film from the early 60s, based on a play by Tennessee Williams.

Sweet Smell Of Success
Decca, 1957. Very Good+
The full orchestral version of the Sweet Smell Of Success soundtrack – but done in a style that's almost as jazzy and swinging as the small combo one! Elmer Bernstein's at the helm here – and the music's a wonderful pastiche of modes that's right up there with his sublime score for The ... LP, Vinyl record album

If It's Tuesday This Must Be Belgium
United Artists, 1969. Sealed
A pretty darn great movie – from what we remember – with a pretty nice soundtrack! The film a madcap portrayal of a bunch of Americans trying to tour Europe in one week – and although it's pretty zany, the music is remarkably sensitive – scored by Walter Scharf in a mixture ...

United Artists, 1963. Sealed Gatefold
One of the craziest cross-country films ever made – with a host of stars so big we'd have to rent another website just to list them! Ernest Gold does a pretty nice job with the soundtrack – maybe not as all-out goofy as the story, but in a nice way that really helps to anchor the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Khartoum
United Artists, Early 60s. Sealed
A heavily orchestral score for this Cinerama desert flick that starred Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier – filled with dramatic themes that are clearly in the Lawrence Of Arabia mode!

Midnight Cowboy
United Artists, 1969. Very Good-
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moonraker
United Artists, 1979. Very Good-
Bond goes into space, but Barry stays on the ground – in one of the lesser-remembered James Bond soundtracks of the 70s! The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Cool
United Artists, 1963. Very Good+
Fab jazzy soundtrack from the early 60s! The film's a cool gangster flick that starred Joey Bishop, Jim Backus, Mort Sahl, and Telly Savalas (what a cast!) – and also featured Sammy Davis Jr., who sings two cuts from the score, "The Ballad of Johnny Cool", and the amazing "Bee ...

A weird one – but a nice one! Side one features tunes composed by Cy Coleman for the film Troublemaker – mostly easy instrumentals, in the vein of Cy's regular work from the time, but with some nice soundtrack-y touches from time to time – with titles that include "Finale&quo ...
