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.

Sticks & Bones
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Sticks & Bones – percussion and trombones – a great little combination in the hands of hi-fi arranger Marty Gold!

Esquivel 1968!
RCA, 1968. Near Mint-
This is such a great record! Unlike Esquivel's earlier albums for RCA, this one was recorded in Mexico, and issued mostly only in the Latin market, which has made it his hardest to get. The sound is a lot more Latin-oriented than his those sides, recorded with a tighter combo though the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Strings Aflame
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Despite the "strings" in the title, this one actually swings quite well, and has a bit of an exotic gypsy flavor to it, augmented by cool spacey production that makes the strings hum with a strange other-worldly tonality. The set's filled with the usual crazy Esquivel arrangements, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1966. Very Good
Hefti nicely follows up his first Batman LP – with a set of tracks that have an equally jazzy bounce to them! The tunes are a bit farther-stretching in terms of their "Batman" component, but still have a great Gotham City groove – nice and 60s, with the usual wonderful Hefti ... LP, Vinyl record album

Storm & The Sea – Sounds For Love
Warner, 1974. Very Good+
Warner Brothers' answer to the Environments series – a full set of "sounds for love", that is, water sounds, with one side of ocean noises (The Sea), and one side of a rain storm (The Storm). This kind of thing doesn't really put us in a lovin' mood (mostly because we keep running ... LP, Vinyl record album
