❔
If you dig the classic soundtrack work of John Carpenter, you'll find plenty to love here – as the album's overflowing with excellent tracks that rival his famous music for films like Halloween and Escape To New York! In fact, the sound of these cuts is right in the same mode as those – very late 70s/early 80s – with lots of space between the keyboard lines, and a mostly electronic approach to the music – those long lines and lean moments that Carpenter used so well to emphasize fear and tension on the movie screen! Titles include "Dark Blues", "Virtual Survivor", "Bela Lugosi", "Windy Death", "Distant Dream", "Angel's Asylum", "Persia Rising", and "White Pulse".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

MGM/Kritzerland, 1977. Used
A surprisingly sensitive score – especially for a film that was issued as part of a big 70s wave of supernatural thrillers! True, there's some creepy moments in the movie – but Michael Small's music here has a richness that goes beyond the usual demonic and horror styles of the time ... CD
MGM/Intrada, 1960/1988. Used 2 CDs
(Out of print and sealed.) CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1959. Used
An atomic-age noir thriller – scored beautifully by a young Jerry Goldsmith! The score is wonderfully jazzy – almost crime-style at most points, but with a bit more depth, too – that mix of modes that you might find in some of Elmer Bernstein's best work of the late 50s, with a ... CD
United Artists/Varese, 1963. Used
Nice tune! The groovy main theme to this one far outlived the film, and showed up all over the place in the 60s – on instrumental theme records, TV spoofs, and other oddball sources. The rest of the score's pretty great, too – and features some compelling orchestrations by Bernstein, ... CD
Intrada, 1989. Used
A great Jerry Goldsmith score from the mid 60s – penned for a western, but with a sensitivity that's much more like some of his best dramatic work of the time! There's some wonderful use of woodwinds and strings in the lineup – often with the sense of mature color and tone that Jerry ... CD

Beat (Italy), Early 70s. Used
A spooky little soundtrack, with some slight erotic moments as well – all scored for a schlocky Italian film starring an ex-patriot Farley Granger! The story centers around an investigation of an earlier rape and murder – and the music does a good deal to underscore the mix of sexual ... CD

Fontana (Japan), 1958. Used
Excellent jazz from French soundtracks of the late 50s! The bulk of the set is taken up with Art Blakey's wornderful score to the film Des Femmes Disparaissent – which features work by Jazz Messengers Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, and Benny Golson, recorded in Paris in 1958, with a hip swinging ... CD
Fantasy, Mid 60s. Used
Vince Guaraldi's wonderful music for the first-ever cartoon to feature the Peanuts characters in animated form – a sublime batch of jazz instrumentals that forever changed the face of music in shows of this nature! Vince steps out with an amazing sound right from the start – even ... CD
