More Mission Impossible

LP (Item 31251) Paramount, 1967 — Condition: Very Good+

A real stunner from Lalo – filled with tight jazzy soundtrack grooves, most of which sound even better than the work on the original Mission Impossible soundtrack! The groove is very much in the pocket, and perfectly captures Schifrin's classic mix of bossa, jazz, and crime themes. Titles include "Self-Destruct", "Mission Blues", "More Mission", "Foul Play", and the sample classic "The Danube Incident".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a cutout notch.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Colpix, 1965. Very Good
Not a surf record – but a wonderful batch of groovy groovy jazz! Lalo penned this score for a Bruce Brown-like surfing documentary in the mid 60s – but instead of the usual guitar riffing and bongo drumming on such a score, he used a lot of jagged jazzy lines – working in a bit ...

Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
One of the best-ever Lalo Schifrin LPs! It's got a very cool organ-driven keyboard sound, tight jazzy arrangements, and a great set of themes like "Once a Thief", "The Cat", "The Man From Thrush", and "Blues a Go Go". Very swingin', very cool, and recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, Late 60s. Sealed
Fantastic stuff! In case you don't know it, this is one of Lalo Schifrin's most incredible soundtracks, and it's a stunning mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy grooves. There's lots of cool bubbling electric bass, lilting keyboards, and moody breezy rhythms. Nearly every cut's a winner, and if you ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paramount, Early 70s. Sealed
A delightfully offbeat soundtrack from the glory days of the biker film – put together by Harley Hatcher, but featuring performances by a whole host of different artists! Hatcher approaches the record with the same sort of vibe that Mike Curb was using for similar projects – working ... LP, Vinyl record album
Apple, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
Groovy batch of ragas from the soundtrack to this film about Ravi Shankar. We've never heard of the film, but given that the whole thing's very lovingly packaged by Apple – with a good booklet and everything – you almost don't need to see the movie. George Harrison headed up the whole ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Barry/Donna Summer

Deep – Original Soundtrack
Casablanca, 1977. Very Good+
Well, it's not Jaws – but it's still pretty darn groovy – a very cool set of tracks that features some long, lush orchestrations from the great John Barry – plus some sublime disco sounds from Donna Summer! The first half of the record features Barry's extended "Return To ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Clanton & Others

Teenage Millionaire
Ace, Early 60s. Very Good+

Johnny Keating

Robbery
London, 1967. Near Mint-
A killer soundtrack from jazzy Johnny Keating – a set that we'd rank right up there with his other non-film work of the 60s! The score's got a bold, edgey sort of quality – one that shows a real maturation in Keating's music since the earlier part of the decade – but still that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Ackerman/Teo Macero

Faces
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Like the music in most of John Cassavetes films, this LP's a weird mish mash of styles, sounds, and snippets – but it's also got a very emotional edge to it, like all of Cassavetes' films. Jack Ackerman did most of the music, and Teo Macero arranged and conducted all of it. Weird stuff, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sharky's Machine
Warner, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the coolest soundtracks ever for a Burt Reynolds film – an a hip mix of soul and jazz tracks that's gone onto become a classic over the years! The album's a compilation of sorts, but most of the material was recorded fresh for the film – and the different artists really work ... LP, Vinyl record album
