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.

Herb Alpert's going South Of The Border again in another marvelous set of modern mariachi tunes – taking that wonderful Tijuana Brass sound, and turning it towards a number of familiar hits of the day!

Whipped Cream & Other Delights
A&M, 1965. Very Good
Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warm
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic record from the late 60s years of Herb Alpert – a time when the trumpeter was really opening up his sound, and starting to hit some of the same cool styles of his other great acts on the A&M label! Gone are the trademark Cali-Mex arrangements of the early Tijuana Brass ... LP, Vinyl record album
Make It Easy On Yourself
A&M, 1969. Very Good
Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Burt Bacharach (1971)
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
Insanely wonderful work by Bacharach – in a way that we can hardly begin to describe (but we'll certainly try!) By the time this one was recorded – 1971 – Burt's reputation as a songwriter and arranger were so firmly established that he had an incredible amount of freedom in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reach Out
A&M, 1967. Near Mint-
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Mass
Uni, 1971. Very Good
This is one of Mort Garson's craziest moog records ever, or as the label says: "Moog Goes Supernatural with Eerie Electronics". Ostensibly a satanic sort of thing, this is actually a wild cool mix of moog and early synthesizer effects, over a bunch of original compositions with no sorts ... LP, Vinyl record album
Environments–Disc 7
Atlantic, 1976. Sealed
Two sets "Intonation" and "Summer Cornfield", can (the label claims) "Actually Help You Meditate...Even if You've Never Meditated Before!". As the notes say, play at any speed, for different psychological effects. LP, Vinyl record album
Strings Aflame
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Despite the "strings" in the title, this one actually swings quite well, and has a bit of an exotic gypsy flavor to it, augmented by cool spacey production that makes the strings hum with a strange other-worldly tonality. The set's filled with the usual crazy Esquivel arrangements, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Environments–Disc 8
Syntonic/Atlantic, Early 70s. Sealed
What a groovy little set! Side 1 features "Sailboat", nothing but a recording of the ambient sounds of the deck fo a sailboat as it cuts its way through the waves on a peaceful sunny day. Side 2 features "Country Stream", with the same gimmick, and designed to induce calm as ... LP, Vinyl record album
