Malcolm X – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 26115) Warner, 1972 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 12

A beautiful record that's not only an excellent soundtrack – it's also one of the best-ever Malcolm X records you can find! The record brings together tracks from the 1972 film on Malcolm's life – and it combines fantastic original speeches, like "N_ggers", "American Nightmare", "Africa", and "Who Taught You To Hate Yourself?" – but also includes snippets of music and knowledge from the Last Poets, Billie Holiday, James Earl Jones, Ossie Davis, Betty Shabazz, and others. A beautiful sound collage, and a fitting tribute! (Cover has some wear, a sticker, some small stains, and a small splt on the top seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Petulia
Warner, 1968. Very Good+
A pretty compelling John Barry score – written for this strange semi-comedy which starred George C Scott and Julie Christie, and which was directed by Richard Lester. The music is a mixture of groovy themes and slower numbers that still have a modulated groovy approach – strings ... LP, Vinyl record album
Last Summer
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good+
A weird little soundtrack – composed and performed by John Simon, and mostly in a fake rock group mode, ala some of the Tower Records soundtracks of the same time. The instrumental "Last Summer Theme" is a nice one – with some spare electric harpsichord over sweet strings ... LP, Vinyl record album
Golden Boy – Original Broadway Cast
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
A surprisingly jazzy score – thanks to orchestrations by Ralph Burns, and musical direction by Elliot Lawrence! And of course, the vocals by Sammy Davis Jr are pretty darn nice too! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sixteen Candles
MCA, 1984. Near Mint-
LP, Vinyl record album
Colgems, Mid 60s. Very Good
Frank DeVol did the orchestral score for this groovy 60s film about racial tensions at the dinner table – and the music is very much in keeping with some of his more famous work from the time. Lots of light flourishes, and the occasional "stock" groovy moment. The score features a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Man From UNCLE
RCA, 1965. Very Good
An amazing little soundtrack that's almost better than the show for which it was written! The set's a landmark batch of work from Hugo Montenegro – working here in a jazzy style that has lots of 60s mod touches – traces of spy soundtrack influence, but a bit more straight ahead too ...

Midnight Cowboy
United Artists, 1969. Very Good+
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dynamite Brothers
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Charles Earland did the funky score for this obscure Kung Fu movie – and it's one of his best albums of the time! The lineup includes a lot of the great players that were helping him on his mid-70's stuff – Eddie Henderson, Dave Hubbard, Patrick Gleeson – and the groove is deeper ... LP, Vinyl record album
