Backgrounds For Brando

LP (Item 33338) Dot, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 12

A rare session recorded by Elmer Bernstein in tribute of Marlon Brando's key 50s appearances in film! The album is not so much a soundtrack, as it is a collection of tracks from Brando films – written by Franz Waxman, Leith Stevens, Miklos Rozsa, Dimitri Tiomkin, and others – all redone by Bernstein in a style that links together disparate themes nicely. The album features variations on themes from the films The Men, Guys & Dolls, On The Waterfront, Viva Zapata, Sayonara, and Streetcar Named Desire.  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

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".

A weird one – but a nice one!

Fantastic! This great Burt Bacharach score to an obscure film has some of his most fantastic orchestrations ever. The sound is cool, breezy, and with some amazing changes that make you gasp anew at his genius. Dionne Warwick sings on some tracks, and it's nice to hear her do material that you're ...
