Plays The Theme From Love Story

LP (Item 544950) RCA, 1970 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 9

A pretty wild album from Henry Mancini – one that's a lot better than the title might make it sound! The set's made up of a lot of late 60s/early 70s film themes – but Mancini's approach to them is nothing short of mad – mixing in strange arrangements, complicated rhythms, and weird touches that include harmonica, tinkling piano, and some dreamy chorus vocals! The whole thing's got a complicated approach to sound that's totally great – and which moves the music way past simple cover versions of hit film themes at the time. Titles include "Theme For Three", "Borsalino", "Loss Of Love", "Thank You Very Much", "MASH", "Love Story", and "The Harmonica Man". (Orange label pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Magoo In Hi Fi
RCA, 1956. Very Good
A pretty darn cool record – almost an audio cartoon, of sorts, as Jim Backus talks his way through some Mister Magoo routines, with musical backings by Dennis Farnon. The record's actually more entertaining than most of the Magoo cartoons – as the use of voice and music is pretty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Divine Hair Mass In F
Revelation/RCA, 1971. Sealed Gatefold
A very very weird version of "Hair", rewritten as a mass, and performed in a church by the original cast, plus a priest, organist, and everything else that you might throw in if you were going to do it this way. The album's got all the tracks from the score – like "1000 Year ... LP, Vinyl record album

Adventures In Sound & Space
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
Wild! This is an amazing album that recreates a possible space trip using sound and music – and it's right in keeping with the best of these RCA stereo spectacular albums from the late 50s. The album works as a vocal narrative – kind of like a radio show – and has dialogue from ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1971. Near Mint-
Totally excellent album that remixes a number of great tracks from Nilsson's albums Pandemonium Side Show and Aerial Ballet. The record features some killer stuff – like a remake of his original version of "Without Her", with an even better sound than the original! Other tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Watusi Trumpets
RCA, 1965. Very Good+
Great funky instrumentals – not really Latin, but given sort of a pop-Latin soul feel by the great Claus Ogerman! The record's one of a few totally great little gems that Ogerman cut for RCA during the mid 60s – and it takes the bass-heavy sound of the German Easy movement of the 60s, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quiet Village
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electrodynamics
Command, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Not his most out there record, but filled with lots of nice little tracks on the Lowrey Organ. Includes a version of "Mack the Knife" that really swings, plus "Big Ben Bossa" and lots of standards, like "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", 'Fly Me To The Moon" and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music To Watch Birds By
Dyno Voice, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
Groovy, BABY! Bob Crewe's swingin' follow-up to his Music to Watch Girls By, given a slightly Brit easy twist with cuts like "Birds of Britain", and "Chelsea Girls". Very groovy, with a swingin London sound. As the lyrics to "Birds" go, "Chasin after chicks is ... LP, Vinyl record album
