A tripped-out little rock opera from Lex De Azevedo – post-Hair in both approach and spirit, with a jaunty approach to songwriting that certainly owes a lot to the MacDermot tradition! Many of the tunes have the vocals done in a chorus mode – one that creates a soaring, almost ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/Nilsson —
Midnight Cowboy ... LP 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" – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
John Barry/Shirley Bassey —
Moonraker ... LP United Artists, 1979. Very Good- ...
Bond goes into space, but Barry stays on the ground – in one of the lesser-remembered James Bond soundtracks of the 70s! The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, a library sticker, card pocket, and a few creases.)

Tom Jones ... LP Theater Productions, Mid 60s. Sealed Gatefold ...
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pretty righteous stuff – with some vocals from Alex Bradford and other gospel singers – on cuts that nicely skirt the secular and spiritual! Produced by Jerry Ragovoy, with titles that include "Love Power", "I Gotta Keep Movin", "Good Vibrations", "Fig ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp, cutout notch, edge wear, stickers, and call letters in marker.)

Khartoum ... LP United Artists, Early 60s. Sealed ...
A heavily orchestral score for this Cinerama desert flick that starred Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier – filled with dramatic themes that are clearly in the Lawrence Of Arabia mode! Proud British horns come into play with other instrumentation that echoes the Mid East setting of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Dominic Frontiere —
Billie ... LP United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ...
A playful little soundtrack for this offbeat Patty Duke film – handled by Dominic Frontiere in ways that are sometimes sentimental and respectful, and sometimes seem to be poking a bit of fun at the subject matter! Frontiere's usually our favorite when he hits an upbeat groove – and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the craziest cross-country films ever made – with a host of stars so big we'd have to rent another website just to list them! Ernest Gold does a pretty nice job with the soundtrack – maybe not as all-out goofy as the story, but in a nice way that really helps to anchor the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The soundtrack to the 60s version of Stagecoach – the one with the outrageously beautiful Ann Margaret, Bing Crosby, Red Buttons, Slim Pickens and Alex Cord – with a lavish, though appropriately dust-strewn Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack! This '66 remake may not rival John Ford's landmark ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A dramatic score by Herrmann – written for this 1970 film about a key battle in WWII. Herrmann directs the London Philharmonic, and the whole thing's very action-packed – less edgey than some of Bernard's more famous scores, but strongly voiced nonetheless. Titles include "Prelude ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Quite an important soundtrack – penned for a mid 60s French/American production directed by John Frankenheimer and starring James Garner, Yves Montand, Toshiro Mifume, and Francoise Hardy! The film's an auto racing one – in case you couldn't guess from the title – but the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Swingers unite! Quincy Jones did the score for this very strange film about two couples who decided to freak out their marriages a bit. Some of the material features some jazzy remakes of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus", but other tracks have a nice groovy sound to them. Includes a bunch ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Side one of this LP isn't much to write home about – dramatic orchestral music, written by Mark Lawrence, and conducted by Norman Paris – dark stuff to accompany the film in the title. Side two is great, though – jazzy "impressions" of the main themes, played by a group ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Striking sounds from Michel Magne – an artist who's best known for his groovy soundtracks of the 60s – but who steps out here with a rare experimental set from the late 50s! The style is very much in keeping with the most compelling of the postwar generation in France – as Magne ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groovy and goofy stuff from Hirt and Montenegro – with cuts that include "March To The Alamo", "The Alamo Letter", "Don't Turn Back", "Viva Max March", "Paula's Theme", and "Sneaky Lady". LP, Vinyl record album
More proof that Gordon Parks was one of the most accomplished men of his generation – photographer, director, journalist, and now soundtrack composer! This one's not as funky as Gordon's work for Shaft's Big Score – but it does feature some wonderfully groovy moments, arranged and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing! One bottom corner of the cover has a light stain, but record should be fine.)
Excellent work by composer/leader Pete Rugolo – Stan Kenton's old partner in modernist jazz, and the force behind excellent work by June Christy, The Four Freshmen, and others. This album's got a great "crime jazz" sound – with an approach that sort of starts at the Peter ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear.)
Jerry Lewis as a boy geisha? Sounds like a pretty wild movie – but the soundtrack is a bit more straightforward than you might expect – a great mix of rich Hollywood scoring with some very nice "exotic" touches thrown in for good measure – a surprisingly top-shelf ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty darn great movie – from what we remember – with a pretty nice soundtrack! The film a madcap portrayal of a bunch of Americans trying to tour Europe in one week – and although it's pretty zany, the music is remarkably sensitive – scored by Walter Scharf in a mixture ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Although the title of the film (and book, and TV series) soon became a synonym for sex and sin, the largely orchestral score to the movie is far less sexy than you'd expect. Franz Waxman handled the scoring of the film in pretty much the same way as he'd handled a lot of his other classic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear, small seam splits, and remmnants of masking tape on front.)
A great soundtrack by Pat Williams – best known to Dusty Groove customers for his groovy instrumental albums on Verve! The tracks have loads of easy, bossa, and sixties grooves running throughout – with nice jazzy bits, and tracks that include "Villa Sweet Villa", "How ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Label has a library sticker. Cover has wide clear tape on the seams and some discoloration along the opening.)
The classic first volume in this series, put together back in the 80's, when loads of hip hop tracks were sampling things like "Inspector Gadget" and "Batman". Still classic now, though, and with loads of material, like The Flintsones, Batman, Lost In Space, Star Trek, The Dick ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
