7-inch, Vinyl record

...

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, 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.

De-Lite, 1975. Near Mint-
Brilliant! "Summer Madness" is one of those tunes that you could never hope to top – spare, moody, with incredible electronics, and a mad slow funk groove that's never sounded anything less than fresh in all its years! "Spirit Of The Boogie" is a tasty cut that virtually ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
ABC, 1975. Near Mint-
Nice single of one of Ike's biggest hits after his Stax years – a heavy hot buttered groove, and the instrumental is a good take on the club classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Express Yourself/Living On Borrowed Time
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good
One Charles Wright's best tracks ever! "Express Yourself" is a funky funky classic – with amazing popping grooves, and a chugging hook that you'll recognize instantly. 7-inch, Vinyl record
VIP, 1969. Very Good+
Wonderful! "It's A Shame" is one of the Spinners' best cuts! It's got a totally groovy hook, great strident arrangements, and a harmony soul feel that goes waaaay over the top! Tough to find on vinyl, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
La Val, 1972. Near Mint-
A popular bluesy number from the early 70s – with a fairly obvious bawdy subject matter that made the track as popular for Chick as "Strokin" was for Clarence Carter. Or if not that popular, it at least made the cut an underground blues hit for a fair number of years. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Watusi/Wallflower
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good+
"Watusi" is a classic groover from The Vibrations – a slowly dancing number with a hard-sock groove, one of the group's best early cuts! "Wallflower" is more uptempo, tighter harmonies and a smoother groove – kind of a sing-song playful number, with raw vocals on ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Kapp, Late 60s. Very Good+
A Latin funk monster! El Chicano took this tune from Gerald Wilson and turned it into a groover that would forever define the sound of west coast Latin! The cut's got a slow romping groove – very spaced out, with nice organ on the beat, and a trippy chromatic guitar riffing away over the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+
Soulful Mongo – 2 60s soul tracks, redone with a sweet Latin finish! "Son Of A Preacher Man" grooves nice and slow – a very nice sax solo snaking around the rhythms! "Cloud Nine" kicks off a lot faster – heavy heavy percussion, really riffing along with the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Skye, Early 70s. Very Good+
A great single from Lena – a funky remake of the Beatles' "Rocky Raccoon" – done with a sweet vamping sort of groove, and some nice guitar from Gabor Szabo! "Watch What Happens" is taken at a nice stepping pace – again with some sweet guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record
