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.

This Time Of Year
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
June Christy's rarest album – and one of the saddest Christmas records you'll ever buy! The set features all original tunes written for the album by the team of Connie Pearce and Arnold Miller – and they're perfectly suited for June's late boozy style, much more lanquid than on earlier ...

Last Month Of The Year
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good
A goofy cover, but a surprisingly great Christmas album – fresher than most from the time, and filled with unusual tunes! The trio nicely get past the usual Christmas standards on most of these numbers – and present a number of older traditional tunes in a new 60s folk sort of mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Arrangements by Richard Hazard – on tunes that include "The Christmas Waltz", "What Child Is This", "Little Drummer Boy", and "Christmas All Alone". And the Lettermen are very handsomely outfitted on the cover with clothes from Beau Gentry! LP, Vinyl record album
Happy Holiday (aka That Holiday Feeling)
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Nobody does the Holidays like Steve & Eydie – serving up the goods with that perfect blend of swing and schmaltz that sounds great during the eleven other months of the year, but somehow sounds especially nice at Christmas! Maybe it's the way they interact – which reminds us a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1964. Sealed

Reprise, 1968. Near Mint-
A lost relic in the Sinatra catalog – a 60s Holiday album cut with family members Frank Jr, Nancy, and Tina! There's a definite TV show sort of feeling to the album – as a number of the tunes are done by the whole family, trading verses as they would in a performance – while ... LP, Vinyl record album
Funky Christmas
Cotillion, 1976. Very Good+
One of the greatest Christmas albums of the 70s – a landmark assemblage of some of the hippest soul music talents of the time – offering up a host of different tracks that have gone onto become classics over years! Most artists were working for Atlantic/Cotillion Records at the time, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Takoma, 1975. Near Mint-
A fantastic follow up to the first, better-known Christmas album from guitar genius John Fahey – and a set that's maybe even more mindblowing overall!

Apple, 1963. Very Good+
Phil Spector's classic Christmas album – a swirling delight of 60s pop and soul numbers, still one of the greatest full Christmas LPs ever recorded!
