CD & DVD Grading Guide

All CDs and DVDs are original releases.

All CDs will come with a new jewel case and original artwork unless otherwise noted.

We strive to give a 100% honest rating on our CDs and DVDs. The rating system that we use is based on the Record Collectors Grading System and is as follows:


MINT = The Disc itself is in 'as new' condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The artwork is in perfect condition.

EXCELLENT = The Disc shows some signs of having been played, there may be some light marks that do not affect playback or sound quality. The artwork might have slight wear.

VERY GOOD = The Disc has quite obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite many noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the artwork, without any major defects is acceptable.

ACCEPTABLE / GOOD  = The Disc has been played so much that it is heavily marked but guaranteed to play through. The artwork suffers from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, tears, etc. (Should this be the case the description should specify the fault).
