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.

Fantasy, 1973. Very Good+
Mellow electric stuff recorded by Tjader with a number of different west coast studio groups. The tracks are pretty short, and not as funky as those on some of Tjader's other records from the time, but there's still plenty of nice jazzy moments, and a good moody vibe. Titles include "Gary's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gerry Mulligan Quartet/Paul Desmond Quintet
Fantasy, Early 50s. Very Good+
A 50s Fantasy album that brings together 2 earlier 10" jazz sessions – one by Mulligan and one by Desmond, both unusual outings for the players. Side one features Gerry Mulligan working with a strong early group – Chet Baker on trumpet, Chico Hamilton on drums, and Carson Smith on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1976. Very Good+
A great lost chapter in the Larry Mizell story – a record that's not nearly as well known as Mizell-produced jams for Bobbi Humphrey or Johnny Hammond, but which is every bit as great! Roger Glenn's a funky flute player with a really great groove – California groovy, with just a touch ... LP, Vinyl record album

Demasiado Caliente
Fantasy, 1960s. Near Mint-
One of Cal Tjader's lesser-known Latin sessions from his Fantasy Records years – a nice little cooker with some great arrangements from Eddie Cano, who also plays piano on the set!

Fantasy, Late 60s. Very Good
An excellent album from legendary vibist Cal Tjader – and one of his truly electric albums!

Fantasy, 1954. Near Mint-
Early Latin from the great Cal Tjader – proof that he had a wonderful ear for this sort of a groove, even when he was just getting started!

Fantasy, 1960. Very Good
An early Cal Tjader album for Fantasy, featuring Cal's vibes set up in a piano and percussion mode – a bit like work by the George Shearing group, but with a hipper sound!

Chet Baker & Crew
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good-
Killer work from the late 50's by Chet! Although Baker's trumpet playing in the early part of the decade became known as one of the trademark "cool" sounds of the west coast, he started to move towards a sound that was a lot more hardbop at the end of the decade – as you'll hear on ...

Prestige, 1971. Very Good+
One of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius!
