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.

Kent, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A great album of funky blues rock with a heavy fuzzy guitar sound! Neil Merryweather's out front on bass and vocals – but the guitar and drums really kick up the groove, rolling around in a stoned-out SF groove that makes this way more than just your typical blues rock session.

Bedlam
Chrysalis, 1973. Very Good
Pretty heavy duty rock from this group that featured drummer Cozy Powell. Most of the tracks aren't too great to our ears, but there's one killer break track called "Seven Long Years" – a stone jammer that begins with some great drums that break nicely into guitars. Also includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Goldhawke, 1977. Very Good+
The second album by this hip funky rock combo – with a flanged out 70s groove that reminds us a bit of Average White Band, a bit of Hot Chocolate (the British group). The best cuts have funk in the forefront – with plenty of basswork and wah wah guitar. The rest of the album's more of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Captain Beyond
Cotillion, 1972. Very Good+
A surprisingly great batch of kick ass rock and roll tunes – southern fried, but done with a cosmic undercurrent that makes for a mighty weird approach! The drums are amazing – fierce right from the get-go, in a way that has made the record a favorite with break collectors for years ... 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 ...

Ars Nova (1968)
Elektra, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
A wonderful little set of post-folk rock – with lots of lovely baroque touches! Ars Nova were really a one-off group – known for only this rare gem, issued on Elektra in 1968 – but with a sound that perfectly summed up a generation! There's a wonderful LA late 60s sound here ...
