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.

Sugar Hill, 1982. Near Mint-
A killer single from Trouble Funk, on Sugar Hill, with the band's trade mark percussive riffing, and as you'd expect from go go, loads of nice fills and breakdowns all centered around a fat rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Shadybrook, 1977. Near Mint-
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good+
Old school track from Sugar Hill's female trio that does not feature the classic Sugar Hill rhythm section, but instead uses a more synthetic sound, along the lines of maybe the Dazz Band. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Uptown/MCA, 1993. Near Mint- (pic cover)

Love Me Baby/You're Someone Special
Wind Song, 1986. Near Mint-
2 smooth jazzy numbers from the Chicago-based 80s group Wind Song – fronted by lead vocalist Angela Charles, a nice sophisticated soul singer, with a style that recalls Phyllis Hyman or Jean Carne during the same period. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Virgin, 1992. Near Mint-
A couple of nice early 90s remixes from the Masters At Work for Neneh Cherry, an artist we always wanted to like, but never quite got our head around. Notorious BIG makes a guest spot on the remix by Falcon & Fabian. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic/Atco, 1978. Very Good+
Ahhhhhhhhhh . . . Freak Out! What can we say? The cut's a monster – silly to be sure, but still with a choppy dancefloor groove that gets 'em every time! Nile Rogers, if you'd only stuck to guitar riffing like this, you'd have become President! 12-inch, Vinyl record
