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.

Same People
Dunhill, 1970. Very Good+
Brassy jazzy hard and tight little tracks from this blue-eyed southern soul brother – with production by the great Huey P Meux. The album's core is a rocking southern sound, but there are definitely more soul elements here – and the heavy drums on the set make it super nice and funky! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tim Hardin 1
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good
Fantastically beautiful stuff! Tim emerges here as one of the true genius singer-songwriters of his generation – mixing together folksy roots, intimate jazz-inflected vocalizations, and wonderful instrumental touches from players like Gary Burton, Earl Palmer, and John Sebastian, layered ...

Motown, 1973. Near Mint-
Who are these guys? They're actually pretty great – a jazz rock group with some nice soulful influences, sounding better than you'd expect for such an ensemble. Tracks have a sound that's somewhere in the Blood Sweat & Tears/Chicago vein – but lighter, with more of a west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album
