LP, Vinyl record album


Driving stuff from Blues Image – the fairly short-lived, Latin-tinged 60s stoner rockers that are scarcely remembered but for the lone big hit "Ride Captain Ride", one of the finest rock singles of the era. That tune, with it's mellow mid tempo organ groove and big catchy chorus is a bit uncharacteristic of the group's overall sound. Blues Image as a whole is much more indebted to Cream – with really heavy riffing and tight propulsive drums and percussion that make them a nicely dirgy answer to others in the sunshine scene. Hazy rock fans of today can have their Queens Of The Stone Age, and all the rest. We'll take the real thing. Thanks again, Sundazed, for rescuing a long lost, worthy slab of 60s rock! "Love Is The Answer", "Running The Water", "Clean Love", "La Bamba", "Consuelate", "Ride Captain Ride", "Pay My Dues" and more.

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.
