(Cover has light wear & a promo stamp.)

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.

Thorough, 1990s. Very Good+
Six dope tracks from Masta Ace that should have been released earlier but never were due to record label problems, etc. Side B includes three tracks recorded between 1992 and 1994 that are better than most of his "Sittin On Chrome" era tracks – "Way Of The World", "So ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop
Jive, 1989. Good+
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 2007. Near Mint- 2LP
Lupe Fiasco takes his style a kick & a push deeper than the perceived sunny positivity of his debut on second album The Cool – flashing some biting social criticism – and a sharp brilliance that shows he's too restless to simply coast!

Criminal Minded
B-Boy, 1987. Very Good
One of the best debuts in the history of hip hop – and one of the most important albums the genre ever produced! Criminal Minded is landmark for a number of reasons. Among the biggest is, of course, that it was recorded with the late great DJ Scott La Rock – and he was soon to fall ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music Madness
Sleeping Bag, 1986. Sealed
The follow up to the classic first LP! Listening to Kurtis Mantronik productions all of these years later is a definite educational experience, given the huge influence the crisp synth sounds had on the future of hip hop – not only as a matter of necessity, given the cost of sample clearance ...

Tino's Breaks Vol 2 – How To Play Latin Beats
Tino Corp, 1998. Sealed
Strange 2nd volume in the Tino series. The first one was mostly hip hop instrumental breaks, but this one is mostly Latin percussion samples – plus some stuff that's got more of a drum n bass groove to it. Not so much of a break record for DJs, at least not nearly as much as the first one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ethnic Communications Outlet, 1985. Very Good
A public service announcement LP including 12 songs. A quote from the back cover states "positive motivational messages in rap-music style about important problems and issues!" LP, Vinyl record album

Biz Never Sleeps
Cold Chillin/Warner, 1989. Very Good
Biz's second LP from 1989 – what can we tell you about the Biz that you don't already know? As far as we're concerned there's a lot of MC's that could learn a lesson or two from the Biz, and producers too. Good time middle school hip hop, with nice sample based production and a great sense ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tino's Breaks Vol 1
Tino Corp, 1998. Sealed
Instrumental hip hop breaks, mixed with the odd goof vocal samples for sampling. The beats are pretty decent, with lots of good bass-heavy beats. Created by video director Ben Stokes and Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto. LP, Vinyl record album

16 tracks in all, including "Get Away", "Bounce", "Hey Luv (Anything)", "The Learning (Burn)", "Get At Me" and "Crawlin". LP, Vinyl record album
