Baby Doll

LP (Item 465272) Columbia, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 12

Kenyon Hopkins at his finest – informed by jazz, but scored with a bit more seriousness overall – in that late 50s style that oozes social consciousness from the very first note! The score's a lot more put together, and somewhat more restrained than the film – almost a jazz score in itself, but with fuller orchestrations overall, conducted by Ray Heindorf. Smiley Lewis plays a bit of piano on the set, and titles include "Fire & Baby Doll", "Doctor & Archie", "Baby Doll's Fright", "Ghosts", and "The Confession". (Sealed 60s pressing!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Quiller Memorandum
Columbia, Mid 60s. Sealed
A sweet little soundtrack by John Barry – very different than the full-on style he used for James Bond – but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The music was written for a spy thriller starring Alec Guiness, George Segal, and Max Von Sydow – a moody film that's handled here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sons Of Katie Elder
Columbia, Late 60s. Sealed
Bernstein at his best – coming up with a strong and driving score, written to accompany this great little western that starred Dean Martin and John Wayne! The main theme's got a lot of punch, and is very much in a "Magnificent 7" mode, and the other tracks on the album are good ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heartbreak Kid
Columbia, 1973. Sealed
A pretty compelling soundtrack – more a document of this odd film than anything else, a melange of instrumental tracks, vocal numbers, and snippets of dialogue, done in a mode that's similar to some of the other Columbia soundtracks of the time. The instrumental tunes are pretty darn groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rosemary's Baby
Dot, 1968. Very Good+
An amazing little soundtrack – one that's as spooky and eerie as the film for which it was written, and which was also one of the few American recordings issued by Polish jazz great Krzysztof Komeda! The core of the album is an especially haunting theme – one hummed as a lullaby by Mia ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Kong
Paramount, 1976. Sealed
John Barry's music for the blockbuster 1976 remake of King Kong – surprisingly sensitive at points, given the action on the screen of the film! Barry's got a great ear for sounds that underscore the sensitivity of the big ape – and his scoring here is a good illustration of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+
Although the cover of this one makes it look like a saucy European film – as does the tag line, which reads "The Motion Picture for people over 18!" – most of the record's in kind of a dreamy period mode, with sweeping orchestrations that are a bit snoozy. Hard to believe, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Multiplication Rock
Capitol, 1973. Near Mint-
Sure, it was silly stuff when we were kids – but once De La Soul sampled "Three Is The Magic Number", this record became one of the most prized in our possession!
