LP, Vinyl record album

We'd be willing to wager Marley is perhaps the artist whose work has been released and re-released, repackaged and reformatted more than any other. This set features work recorded under Coxsone Dodd at Studio One: "Wings Of A Dove", "It Hurts To Be Alone", "I'm Still Waiting", "Who Feels It", "Do You Remember", "Dancing Shoes", "I Don't Need Your Love", "Lonesome Track", "Do You Feel The Same Way" and "The Ten Commandments Of Love". (Epic pressing.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Marley's answer record after the assassination attempt. While not as hardcore roots as our favorite LPs, we dig the heavy African influence throughout, plus there's some fairly radical politics in play here too. "Ambush The Night", "Ride Natty Ride", "One Drop" and ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's been a long time.... The return of the 18th letter, still up to par with "New York (Ya Out There)", "The Mystery (Who Is God?)", "When I'm Flowin'", "Guess Who's Back", "The Saga Begins" and 8 more on 2 LP's. LP, Vinyl record album

A later effort from Robert Nesta Marley, though nowhere near past his prime. By this point in his career a lot of purists were criticizing Marley for crossing over too far, but there is no shortage of either conscious lyric and intent, nor heavy, rootsy rhythms here.
