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.

Pure Pleasure
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Slicker than usual for Houston Person, but still a pretty nice album of tighly produced R&B-oriented jazz. The group includes a lot of hip players, like Cecil Bridgewater, Paul Griffin, and Bruce Nazarian – and the record has arrangements by Jimmy Roach. Tracks are long, and titles ...

Brass In Hi Fi
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of the excellent albums that Pete Rugolo made away from the company of Stan Kenton, for who he did most of his most famous work. Although the title says "brass", this isn't a loud swinging record in the Billy May sort of way. Instead, Rugolo arranges a haunting set of jazz tracks as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quintet Vol 2
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Second volume pulled together in the early 80s of Brownie's remarkable work with a smoking quintet that would record some of the finest bop sides issued on the Emarcy label. He's working here with Max Roach, George Morrow and Richie Powell and either Sonny Rollins or Harold Land as Brown's foil in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Odyssey
Mercury, 1976. Very Good
After his run of funky organ records for Prestige in the early 70s, Charles took a similar route to Herbie and others, and picked up a host of electric keyboards for his spacey fusion records on Mercury. The core of Earland's groove here is the Arp, which he plays masterfully – running from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Band Bossa Nova
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tenor Jazz
Mercury, Late 40s/Early 50s. Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
You N Me
Mercury, 1960. Near Mint-
One of the best albums that Al Cohn and Zoot Sims ever cut together – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of their collaborations during the 50s and 60s! The set's got a nice small group feeling, and is a bit more open and relaxed than some of their RCA material – still in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sing Along Junk
Mercury, 1972. Very Good+
A strange little record – but a nice one! The set's halfway between funky jazz and easy soundtrack grooves – Gap leading the group and handling the arrangements with a bit of help from young brother Chuck. Players include Steve Dadd on drums, John Faddis on trumpet, Frank Wess on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1963. Very Good
A pretty unique record by Gibbs – a set of Jewish tunes set to jazz, played by a group that includes vibes, piano, trombone, and clarinet. The clarinet's the main influence here on the sound – as it's used in a snakey way that instantly invokes Klezmer music, yet still retains the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Land Of Make Believe
Mercury, 1973. Very Good
Titles include "Legend Of The One-Eyed Sailor", "Lullaby For Nancy Carol", "El Gato Triste", "Land Of Make Believe", and "As Long As We're Together". Features vocals by Esther Satterfield! LP, Vinyl record album
