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.

20th Century/Harkit (UK), 1968. Sealed (reissue)
One of Hugo Montenegro's greatest soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest 60s scores we can think of! The album's filled with incredible jazzy tracks – darkly tinged, but bubbling, upbeat, and wonderful – the kind of hard-driving numbers that make a soundtrack like this so ... LP, Vinyl record album

MCA/Harkit (UK), Late 60s. Sealed (reissue)
One of the rarest John Barry soundtracks – and one of the most wonderful too! The work was scored for an obscure Hal Wallis film with Topol and Mia Farrow – and Barry's using these weird strings that kind of float and step with a rhythmic undercurrent – a very odd, watery sound ...

Goldfinger
United Artists, 1964. Very Good-
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Alex North's wonderful score for the Elia Kazan production of Streetcar Named Desire – a soundtrack that's filled with a fair bit of jazz touches, and which almost comes off with an Elmer Bernstein sort of feel! The music's quite dark and evocative – wonderfully played throughout, with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billie
United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A playful little soundtrack for this offbeat Patty Duke film – handled by Dominic Frontiere in ways that are sometimes sentimental and respectful, and sometimes seem to be poking a bit of fun at the subject matter! Frontiere's usually our favorite when he hits an upbeat groove – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Uptight
Stax, 1969. Very Good
A wonderful soundtrack from Booker T & The MGs – a record that's probably much better remembered than the film for which it was written! The tunes show a whole new depth for the group – a style that still has some of the charm of their previous hits, but which also takes off in ... LP, Vinyl record album

What's Up Tiger Lily?
Kama Sutra, 1966. Near Mint-
An excellent soundtrack to one of the wildest Woody Allen movies ever made – a weird little film that has Woody dubbing fake English dialogue over a Japanese action picture! The music by Lovin Spoonful is equally great – a bit groovier than some of their other albums of the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Abraxas
Columbia, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action! Features a stellar cover of "Oye Como Va", plus "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", ... LP, Vinyl record album
