Garland Green's always great to our ears – and these two sides are mighty nice! Both cuts were recorded with Brad Shapiro, the genius of southern soul who was bringing a lot of modern touches to the genre in the early 70s. The sound and style is a lot mellower than Garland's work on Uni – very laidback, with a warm and bubbly finish that works well with his vocals – especially on "Please Come Home"!

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.

Atlantic, 1979. Very Good
One of the blueprints of hip hop! At the time, Chic's "Good Times" just seemed like a wickedly funky pop tune – but who knew that that bass and guitar groove would inspire a whole generation of hip hoppers, bouncing along in a groove that was at once at home on the roller rink or ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Checker, Late 60s. Very Good+
2 great duets from the team of Fontella and Bobby – one of the lesser known pairs to record in the style for Chess! Both cuts are hard-hitting, sock-soul numbers – really grooving with a blend of southern deep and Chicago hard – coming off well in a mode that brings out the best ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Vamp/Let Me Love You
Daran, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Excellent trippy instrumentals from Chicago! "The Vamp" has some great chromatic guitar – a bit like Cal Green, with touches of Wes Montgomery – over a hard rolling organ on the beat groove. Tasty stuff – the kind of single that would blow the speakers off your jukebox ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
