Cinema Legrand

LP (Item 26224) MGM, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Michel Legrand leads an american ensemble through a host of famous film themes from the 60s – like his own "Watch What Happens", plus "Manha De Carnaval", "Norma Jean's Theme", "Two For The Road", "Hombre", and "The Girl I've Never Met". The overall feel is mostly orchestral, but Legrand always adds in some nice touches, like occasional jazzy flourishes.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Columbia, 1964. Very Good
Wonderful stuff – way more than just an easy instrumental album, and a great batch of exotic tunes with lots of jazzy touches!

Marty Gold & His Orchestra

Soundaroundus
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
Swingin hi fi and big band sounds – and, as the label says, "a marriage of music and electronics – spellbinding". The "electronics" aren't moogy or anything like that, but the sound's pretty good, and there are some nice covers such as "A Taste Of Honey", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bernie Green & His Orchestra

Futura
RCA, 1961. Very Good
One of the best of RCA's Stereo Action series! Bernie Green leads his orchestra through a set of material that tries to answer the question "What will pop music sound like in 1970?" (keep in mind that this is 1961) – and a number of the tracks feature a "guitar orchestra" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary McFarland

Soft Samba
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Elliott

Mello Sound
Decca, Mid 50s. Very Good+
A pretty nice set of "mood jazz in hi fi" – featuring Don on the mellophone, trumpet, and vibes – working with a surprisingly hip group that features Bill Evans, Hal McKusick, Paul Motian, and Barry Galbraith. A number of tunes feature backings by a vocal choir of 6 voices ... LP, Vinyl record album

A gem from the early years of Jackie Chan's pre-US stardom – both grooves and dialog from the Dragon Fist film! LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP + 12"
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way ... LP, Vinyl record album
