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.

Shades Of A Genius
Chess, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of the greatest Chess soul albums of the 60s! Mitty first started out recording gospel – and later went back to it – but this excellent album for Chess features Mitty stepping out in a deep soul style that's different than some of the other Chicago singers of the 60s. There's ... LP, Vinyl record album

A Japanese-only release – and a much-needed LP collection of work from Syl's own Shama Records label – really great stuff that's compiled here from some excellent singles! LP, Vinyl record album
Back Home
Chess, 1970. Very Good+
Surprisingly nice work from Chuck Berry – material recorded at the start of the 70s, all with a sound that's much more bluesy than you might expect! There's hardly any oldies cliches going on here at all – and although Chuck still pushes his classic chugging guitar groove on many ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweetest Peaches
Chess, 1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An excellent 2LP set that features some of Etta James' great work for Chess – including some singles-only tracks that are darn hard to find in any format! The set does a good job of moving between the sweeter ballad material and some of Etta's more hard-driving soul numbers – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, 1971. Near Mint-
Rare work by Laura Lee – a singer who's best known for her 70s hits on the Hot Wax label, but who sounds equally great here on her earlier sides for Chess! Lee's deep soul approach was a perfect match for Chess at the end of the 60s – and the work here often has her coming across with ... LP, Vinyl record album

WVON/Chess, 1969. Very Good
Legendary compilation album of 60s soul tracks, put together by the staff of Chicago radio station WVON, in loving tribute to Leonard Chess, of Chess Records, who owned the station. The package has nice photos of the station's DJs on the back – including Herb "Kool Gent" Kent, E. ... LP, Vinyl record album
London Sessions
Chess, 1972. Near Mint-
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years! The set's not as star-studded as other efforts of this nature – but that's fine with us because Chuck really shines as the lead ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+
Chuck's classic work for Chess/Checker – featuring tunes like "Roll Over Beethoven", "Rock & Roll Music", "Johnny B Goode", "Nadine", "Maybelline", "Sweet Little 16", "Thirty Days", and "Memphis". LP, Vinyl record album

You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Very Good
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1973. Very Good
Barry White's got plenty to give here – a massive classic from his legendary early 70s years – and the first record to feature the maestro on his own as a lead act! The set's a masterpiece through and through – a sublime mix of soaring strings, soulful rhythms, and some killer ... LP, Vinyl record album
