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.

Outland
Warner, 1981. Near Mint-
One of Jerry Goldsmith's darker scores of the later years – a really spooky bit of music for this eerie sci-fi movie! Although set in space, the film's music almost has a horror feel – really close, claustrophobic, and tense – put together by Jerry with these brooding string ... LP, Vinyl record album

Inside Daisy Clover
Warner, 1965. Near Mint-
A very strange soundtrack from Andre Previn! The film is an obscure Natalie Wood vehicle – about an actress in Hollywood of the 30s – and it appears that Wood is the vocalist on the album's few numbers with lyrics, written by Andre with the help of Dory Previn, making the set one of ...

To Sir, With Love
Fontana, Late 60s. Very Good+
A pretty groovy soundtrack – one that goes way past the hit! Sure, this one's always been famous for the wonderful track "To Sir With Love" – done here in 3 versions by the young and lovely Lulu, who also starred in the film. But the record's also got some great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Although Manos Hadjidakis' soundtrack work of the 60s is mostly in the Greek-sounding mode, this one features him hitting a bit of a western soundtrack feel – to back a drama starring Terence Stamp, Ricardo Montalban, and Karl Malden. About half the tracks are instrumentals with an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love At First Bite
Parachute, 1979. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live & Let Die
United Artists, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Arguably one of the most successful James Bond soundtracks of the 70s – written for one of the most successful Bond films of the decade. The real standout, of course, is the title cut by Wings – the excellent "Live & Let Die", a sublime rock number that manages to capture ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cross & The Switchblade
Light, Early 70s. Very Good
One of the strangest chapters in the history of the breakbeat! When this weird soundtrack to a religious film starring Pat Boone came out, who'd have thought that it would become one of the most sought-after soundtracks for hip hoppers. Released on the tiny religious label, Light, the album's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1967. Very Good
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best! The groove here is really unique – a spare blend of bossa influences, jazzy organ ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sylvia
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good
David Raksin's most famous soundtrack work was his score for the film Laura – a brilliant suite of strings and melody, with a really haunting refrain that forever got "Laura" covered again and again over the years. About half of this one has a very similar feel – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contempo (Italy), 1960. Sealed (reissue)
A really surprising score from the great Armando Trovajoli – especially if you only know his bigger hits of the 60s, or his lighter, more bossa-styled material! As you might guess from the cover, this one's for a horror film with a dark spooky edge – and Trovajoli follows the spirit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
