Random Bulk 7" Singles – At Least 200 Records

7-inch (Item 850300) ,  — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

A completely random assortment of 7" records – some in good shape, some totally beat up! We make these boxes at random, and seal them tightly – and even we don't know what's in them. Keep in mind that this vinyl has been through the regular racks – and the Bargain Basement – and some of it might have defects, most are not in sleeves, but given the 45rpm format, they can often play surprisingly well, even if they're a bit beat up. We stuff the box with at least 200 singles – but if there's more room, you'll get more too. Think of the contents as "raw material" or "space fillers" – vinyl to be used for projects, decorations, or even things like art installations or set dressing. At less than a nickel a record, the price is certainly right! (Given the nature of these bulk vinyl records, they cannot be returned. All sales are final.)  © 1996-2018, 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.

Mercury, 1972. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Perhaps the greatest record Jerry Butler made in the 70s, and a very tight bit of baroque Chicago soul with arrangements and production by Samuel F. Brown III. The tracks are a good mix of originals and covers, and they all show Jerry going way past his Gamble & Huff/Mercury years – into ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Cat, 1975. Near Mint-
Despite the familiarity of these two titles, they're not covers of more famous tracks, but very very good Little Beaver stuff from his Party Down album, which is an excellent funky soul LP. Nice spare synth percussion, plus dope guitar. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Abet, 1975. Near Mint-
"Party Hearty" is a tasty little cut that nicely earns its name – snapping with plenty of clavinet on the groove, really riffing away on the horns with a hard and heavy Kool & the Gang-styled hook! "Disco Queen" is more of a disco number – natch! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, Late 60s. Very Good+
Killer funky stuff from JB, and just about everything you'd want from him: hard grooves, heavy politics, and lots of nice funky playing by the band! Also the inspiration for the great Talkin' Loud label! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dud Sound, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Ahh . . . For the days of the streaking single! Arelean was an obscure blues singer from Chicago's west side – but she's forever famous among funk fans for this groovy little number. The cut's got a slow bluesy feel – but Arlean keeps it going with some great lines about what a good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
