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.

From The Heart
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
Warm and laidback soul jazz from the great Hank Crawford – cut in a relaxed mode that makes the set feel like some of the late nite smokers on the Prestige label at the time!

True Blue
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good-
A cool cooker from altoist Hank Crawford – cut in a tightly-grooving ensemble mode that really reflects his roots with Ray Charles!

A previously-unissued live date from Bill Evans – recorded in Copenhagen right at the end of the 60s, in a very hip trio that features Eddie Gomez on bass and Marty Morell on drums!

Milestone reissue that brings together 2 late 50's sessions by Donald Byrd! 10 To 4 At The 5 Spot was one of Byrd's partnerships with Pepper Adams – and is tremendous work from saxophonist Pepper – quite possibly one of his most hard-blowing sets on record!

Looking Glass
Milestone, 1973. Very Good
A lost early 70s gem on Milestone – kind of a laidback and openly-flowing set of soulful jazz tracks – played by a group led by guitarist Michael Howell, and featuring Henry Franklin on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Hampton Hawes on electric and acoustic piano. Hawes' work is the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milestone, Early 60s/1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
70's 2LP set that reissues some of the classic tenor material from Griff and Lockjaw recorded for the Jazzland label in the early 60's.
