In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed". Dusty Groove does not use the grades of Near Mint or Mint, for that matter because in our experience, we find that no records ever qualify for such a high grade.

Even sealed records tend to have one or two slight faults, enough to usually qualify them for a grade of NM- or lower. We've often found that records which are clearly unplayed will have a slight amount of surface noise, especially in quieter recordings.

This is a grade we rarely use, as we try not to sell records in very bad condition, though in some rare cases we will list a record in such bad shape that it does not conform to the standards above.

An example might be a recording with surface noise so heavy that it is equal to the volume of the music. For records listed as "Fair", we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments. Like "Fair", we rarely list records in this condition, as they represent the extreme low end of spectrum. These records typically have multiple serious problems, and we offer them as "relics" or "objects" only — for those who want to at least have a copy of a record, even if it is not really worthy of play, perhaps for the cover alone.

For these records, we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments. 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. This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean we often change the cases ourselves , and the booklet to be in good shape.

Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Inspired by Motown 's assembly line of sound, George Clinton gradually put together a collective of over 50 musicians and recorded the ensemble during the '70s both as Parliament and Funkadelic.

While Funkadelic pursued band-format psychedelic rock, Parliament engaged in a funk free-for-all, blending influences from the godfathers James Brown and Sly Stone with freaky costumes and themes inspired by '60s acid culture and science fiction.

After Clinton fused his concepts for P-Funk All Stars , he revitalized them separately in the s, first with an album from Funkadelic and then one with Parliament, Medicaid Fraud Dogg By the time his on-the-move family settled in New Jersey during the early '50s, George Clinton born in in Kannapolis, North Carolina became interested in doo wop, which was just beginning to explode in the New York-metro area.

Based out of a barbershop backroom where Clinton straightened hair, the Parliaments released only two singles during the next ten years, but frequent mid-'60s trips to Detroit -- where Clinton began working as a songwriter and producer -- eventually paid off their investment.

After finding a hit with the single " I Wanna Testify," the Parliaments ran into trouble with Revilot Records and refused to record any new material.

Instead of waiting for a settlement, Clinton decided to record the same band under a new name: Funkadelic. Founded in , the group began life as a smokescreen, claiming as its only members the Parliaments ' backing band -- guitarist Eddie Hazel , bassist Billy Nelson, rhythm guitarist Lucius "Tawl" Ross, drummer Ramon "Tiki" Fulwood, and organist Mickey Atkins -- but in truth including Clinton and the rest of the former Parliaments lineup.

Revilot folded not long after, with the label's existing contracts sold to Atlantic ; Clinton , however, decided to abandon the Parliaments name rather than record for the major label.

By , Clinton had regained the rights to the Parliaments name; he then signed the entire Funkadelic lineup to Invictus Records as Parliament. With Funkadelic firing on all cylinders, however, Clinton decided to discontinue Parliament the name, not the band for the time being.

Though keyboard player Bernie Worrell had played on the original Funkadelic album, his first credit with the conglomeration appeared on Funkadelic 's second album, 's Free Your Mind May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.

May have a number of marks 5 to 10 at most , and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail. May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.

This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new. Very Good - minus Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster. Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper. This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record. Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface.

The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise. May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.

In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing.

Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout. Good A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting. Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout.

May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips. In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record. Fair This is a grade we rarely use, as we try not to sell records in very bad condition, though in some rare cases we will list a record in such bad shape that it does not conform to the standards above.

Poor Like "Fair", we rarely list records in this condition, as they represent the extreme low end of spectrum. A seminal album from Parliament — one that's very very different than the freaky fuzz of their Osmium debut — and which has the tight ensemble really coming down on the money, in the best funky 70s George Clinton mode!

The record features a much more stripped down sound — nice LP, Vinyl record album. Parliament Chocolate City. An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded! The band's rawer style has been firmed up and economized — but a lot of the best elements are still in place, including a strange approach to vocals that has male and female voices interacting Parliament Osmium gram pressing.

The record is Disconnection Disconnection. A nice little record — and one you might accidentally pass up because of its inconspicuous look! The cover is black and white, and the name's kind of a throwaway — but the music is great, warm and soulful disco in the best 70s Prelude mode!

All tracks were written and produced by Freda Payne Reaching Out gram pressing. It's a few years after Freda's big hit "Band of Gold", and she's recording here in a very different mode!
