Les Etoiles Du Cinema – L'Heure Bleue

LP (Item 35227) WIP (France), Mid 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
Excellent slinky sexy 70s work by Francis Lai – the famous French composer who's penned some of our favorite scores, and who's working frequently here in a "sex behind the curtains" style that's pretty great. There's lots of electric moments, and apart from a few tracks that have a more "historical" feel, most of the work is very 70s sounding. Titles include "L'Heure Bleue", "Les Etoiles Du Cinema", "Obsession", "L'Age Tendre", and "La Lecon D'Amour D'Emanuelle".  © 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.

A fantastic soundtrack from the great Francis Lai! The record is one of his most unusual – and features a number of short songs that focus on spare keyboard work, either on organ, piano, or electric piano, and with some cool groovy instrumentation, and a bit of light strings and woodwinds. ...

United Artists, 1967. Very Good+
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best!

MCA, 1978. Near Mint-
Some choice soundtrack work from Jack Nitzsche's prime 70s period, with a handful other tracks by Howlin' Wolf, Captain Beefhaeart and Ike & Tina Turner.

A cool Italian album – featuring one side of the soundtrack of Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu (aka For A Few Dollars More), and the score to Per Un Pugno Di Dollari (aka Fistful Of Dollars)!
