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.

O'Retta, Late 60s. Very Good+
Pre-Brunswick material by The Chi-Lites, arranged and produced by Johnny Cameron – with a sound that's more in keeping with the Chicago group soul sound than some of the group's later, sweeter work. There's a nice doo woppy quality to these cuts – with a late nite sound that's very ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Windy C, Late 60s. Very Good-
Stunning single that includes 2 of the best tracks ever by this legendary soul group from Chicago! Written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, and with a sweet group sound that doesn't quit. "Danger!" was also sampled a few years ago, so you're bound to recognize it, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funky Way/Snatchin' Back
Venture, Early 70s. Very Good-
A killer that we never tire of! "Funky Way" was covered by a number of people, so you might be familiar with it as a funky jazz cut – but this original version is massive! It's got a totally great totally hard guitar-heavy intro, with some very catchy lyrics – and a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
MCA, 1983. Very Good+
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Killer Northern soul from Chuck! "Funny Changes" has a snapping, clapping kind of groove that gets going from the get-go! The tune's propelled along by a fierce electric bassline – dancing, stepping, and turning round and round with a really joyous feel! "Every Hurt" is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Shout, 1973. Very Good+
"Function" is a weak remake of the Shorty Long track (which we always thought was overrated anyway), but the flipside is a great sweet soul track, with tight east coast harmonies, and a nice mellow sound! 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
