Where Are You Going?

LP (Item 7241) Perception, 1972 — Condition: Used

A beautiful lost album by Shirley Horn, and unlike anything else she's ever done. Recorded in a period of obscurity, this LP features a stunning range of material, such as the cuts "Consequences of a Drug Addict Role", a haunting 10 minute mood piece on addiction, "L.A. Breakdown", which has never sounded so meaningful, and Bobby Scott's "Where are You Going?" and "Taste of Honey", done here in fantastic arrangements. Much more like Betty Carter's self-produced LPs than Shirley Horn's other LPs ever were! (Cover has some seam splitting, clear tape on the top seam, a small peeled spot, and a name in marker on back. Labels have some marker.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
