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.

Planet, 1984. Very Good+
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA/Hologram, 1979. Very Good
A dancefloor anthem if there ever was one – and produced by August Darnell, pre Kid Creole. Strong female vocals in unison – and a hook that just won't quit for the west village clubs! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Becket, 1982. Very Good
A smooth 80s groover from Denroy Morgan – with vocals that are a bit on the Jamaican tip, but warmly grooving instrumentation that's all New York, with a sweet jangly club sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good
A very catchy bit of funk from the P-Funk glory days, with a bass-heavy groove that reminds us of Bootsy Collins' best work, and the same sort of "Flashlight" groove that put them over the top. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Streetwise, 1982. Very Good
An electro pop classic – and one of the greatest tunes by New Edition! The track's got some nice street beats from Arthur Baker, and catchy lead vocals that sound a lot like the Jackson 5 at their best! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Total Experience, 1982. Very Good
A great bass-heavy groover from The Gap Band – pulled off one of their best albums ever, Gap Band IV! The cut's got some really great funky bits on the bottom – acoustic piano wrapped around some more electric rhythms, in a blend that keeps the track as soulful as it is catchy! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Yab Yum/Epic, 1997. Near Mint-
A sweet cut lifted off of Laurnea's debut album – Betta Listen – given a remix on the flip with more beats and a harder hip hop sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Solar, 1979. Very Good
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Emergency, 1980. Very Good
Monster club track that's been sampled countless times for classic Miami bass & southern rap songs, with a super heavy and instantly recognizable bass line. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Virgin, 1993. Very Good (pic cover)
Spoiled Milk rmx produced by Milk of Audio Two. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Cold Chillin/Epic, 1995. Near Mint-
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Serchlite, 1997. Near Mint-
Another cut takin' you on a tour of the five boroughs, with guest vocals by DV alias Khrist. Probably these guys' best single, from their early days, with a sort of sung chorus that reminds us a bit of BoneThugs & Harmony, but in a good way, if you can imagine that. 12-inch, Vinyl record
