Godfather – Music From the Motion Picture

LP (Item 26230) Pickwick, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
Back in the 70s, the pull of The Godfather was so strong that you had countless albums like this – which featured little-known (or lesser-known) artists, performing music from Nino Rota's score, in the hopes that folks would purchase the record instead of the real Godfather soundtrack. In this case, Angelo Di Pippo plays piano with the (we're guessing, fake) "Italia Concert Orchestra". Tracks include "The Pickup", "Connie's Wedding", "Halls of Fear", "Sicilian Pastorale", and of course, the "Godfather Theme".  © 1996-2023, 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.

RCA, 1960. Very Good
One of the maestro's greatest! From the instruments spiraling off to infinity on the cover, to the tracks played in the unique crazy Esquivel "wah wah" style, the album stands as one of the finest examples of (and obstacle courses for) modern high fidelity – a really dynamic set of ...

Kapp, 1962. Very Good+
A pop instrumental album, but a really tremendous one – filled with snapping bossa rhythms, and recorded with a really wonderful sound!

Moog Indigo
Vanguard, 1970. Near Mint-
An incredible record of funky moogy grooves – possibly one of the best of the genre! Jean Jacques Perry really outdid himself on this record – going past the simple cut ups of his work with Gershon Kingsley, and hitting a style that was more groovy, and more song oriented. The best ... LP, Vinyl record album
Command, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before!

A totally fantastic soundtrack from the 70s Italian scene – one that's filled with all sorts of sweet electric touches from Lallo Gori – including lots of keyboards over some pretty funky tracks!
