(Later non-gatefold pressing.)

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.

Southwind
Venture, Late 60s. Good
A weird late 60s set from this California group – one that's got a rocking small combo feel at parts, but a partly rural sound too! The vibe's almost like some of the party groups that played the southern circuit in the 60s, but a bit more west coast too – never really psyche or fuzz, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shango
A&M, 1969. Near Mint-
A sweet bit of Island-inspired pop – recorded here by an LA group of the late 60s, with inspirations drawn from the Carribean sands and the California sun! The group use a style that mixes together bits of late 60s South African pop, ala Hugh Masekela, a touch of steel band funk, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire, 1978. Near Mint-
Working class British punk at it's brash, dumb best. We'd be stretching it a bit to rate this album a classic, but it's definitely worth revisiting from time to time, and has stood up better than a lot of other late 70s rock. Includes "Tell Us The Truth", "Rip Off", "We ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Pearl – Live!
Prophesy, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
Nice bit of rockin' funky soul by a band that we know little about, but who seem to be an LA rock band that's obsessed with soul music. The LP contains a great 11 minute version of "Cold Sweat", played with a lot of funky vamping by the band in a JB's style. There's also a nice version ... LP, Vinyl record album
ESP, 1965. Very Good
A classic example of Lower East Side 60's freak out. Recorded by renowned filmmaker, musicologist and trouble maker Harry Smith. Includes the tracks "Slum Goddess", "I Couldn't Get High", "Seize the Day", and the suprisingly beautiful "Nothing". LP, Vinyl record album
Anything Goes
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good+
Bizarre is right – and incredibly hip too! This was the group's second album – and while it has a lot of similarities with the first, it's also a lot deeper of an expression of their strange blend of harmony vocals, sweet 60s pop, and the nostalgia for the early 20th century that was ...

Bedlam
Chrysalis, 1973. Very Good
Pretty heavy duty rock from this group that featured drummer Cozy Powell. Most of the tracks aren't too great to our ears, but there's one killer break track called "Seven Long Years" – a stone jammer that begins with some great drums that break nicely into guitars. Also includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
