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.

Queues
Uni, 1972. Very Good Trifold
We don't know much about the duo of Paul Vigrass and Gary Osborne, but they come together here with a wonderful harmony sound – a mode that's somewhere between the A&M work of Lambert & Nuttycombe, and maybe the best America albums of the 70s – set to these great arrangements ...

Kristyl
Guerssen (Spain), 1975. Near Mint- (reissue)
Melodic underground rock from the mid 70s Louisville, Kentucky scene – with some spaced out, slow building electric groove steeped in the psyche scene of years earlier, but also a nice way with melodies, harmonies that remind us a bit of things the Who were doing at that time (although ...

Galveston
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+
One of Glen's last super-huge albums of the 60s – featuring the sublime Jimmy Webb-penned "Galveston", a track that must have been written for Glen's unique vocal style! The album also includes the hit "Where's The Playground, Susie?" – plus the tracks "Today&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+
Nice groovy instrumentals from one of the best little combos of the 60's. The record includes their big hit "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)", plus a number of other tracks that have a similar "TV commercial" feel – like "Chiquita Banana", "Pizza ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atco, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
A bold step forward for the Rascals – and a record that really has them taking some great chances with their music! There's a definite psychedelic influence in the mix, but the sound is also more ambitious too – not just a scattering of elements borrowed from their contemporaries, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maximillian
ABC, 1969. Very Good+
A really messed-up blend of soul, rock, and blues – done in a style that's very much in keeping with the genre-busting Fillmore scene of the late 60s! Maximillian are a trio who run through Hendrix-like guitars, deep soul styled vocals, and bluesy riffing – often in the course of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barabajagal
Epic, 1968. Very Good
Donovan at his jazzy best – really picking up where Mellow Yellow left off, and pushing the jazz influences in his sound to deeper lengths! Mr Leitch is a million miles away from his Dylanesque early roots on the set – and is working in territory that's completely his own – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shame Shame
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint-
Almost a late British invasion group – and a pretty darn groovy one at that! The Magic Lanterns hail from the UK, but they've got a sound that's picked up some of the Sunshine pop and jazzier touches of the US pop scene in the late 60s – heard to great effect on the title hit "Sham ...
