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.

Heat Wave
Concord, 1982. Near Mint-
In our opinion, Carmen always sounds best when she's singing with a small jazz combo backing her up – which is why we dig this tasty set from the early 80s, recorded with a great group led by Cal! The album's got some nice Latin touches – thanks to piano by Mark Levin, and conga work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dot, Late 60s. Very Good
A great one by Jack Sheldon – very different than some of his earlier jazz work, done in a hip LA easy style that has slight touches of later work on labels like CTI. Don Sebesky scored the arrangements for the set, giving the music a dark easy edge that's a perfect backdrop for Sheldon's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Total JJ Johnson
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
A further chapter in the big band years of JJ Johnson – heard here at a point when JJ was pushing his ensemble even more than before, with a fluid groove that almost matches the energy of similar groups on MPS at the time! There's a real undercurrent of hipness going on in the record – ... LP, Vinyl record album
