12-inch, Vinyl record


"On The Beat" is one of the greatest dancefloor tracks from the 80s – a solid sender with a blend of funk and disco, made even better with a great hook, and a classic sound that never gets old! The cut's a crossover classic from years back, and you get it here in two versions! (Promo.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

A wicked little track that's a real classic from the electro years – a tune that vamps along with great bass and keyboards, but which also features some soulful vocals over the top alongside the electronics!

Capitol, 1982. Very Good
One of George Clinton's biggest hits – and probably his last gasp on the charts in a major way. The cut's a logical extension of late 70s P-Funk – with more of the bass-popping 80s grooves and electro touches that Clinton had inspired in so many other funky groups at the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Rhythmic (UK), 1985. Very Good- (pic cover)
A crossover electro-era groover in the best Kraftwerk mode – one of those European imports that somehow managed to crack the US dancefloors strongly in the Danceteria days. Vocals are a bit cold, but in a good way – one that works with all the electro beats and keys! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A club crossover classic from The Rolling Stones – a track that surprisingly got the group onto the dancefloor in the late 70s, but which still held onto most of their best elements!
