Washington Behind Closed Doors

LP (Item 355896) ABC, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A slinky little 70s soundtrack – written by Dominic Frontiere for this barely-remembered ABC mini-series! Dom's using some great disco touches on the set – grooving in a mode that's not nearly as cheesy as you might think, and which has a good link to his better soundtracks of the early 70s. Titles include "Love Theme", "Behind Closed Doors Disco", "Washington Behind Closed Doors", "Jamaican Holiday", "Embassy Row", and "Paint My Love Blue". (Cover has light wear and a small sticker on back.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Capitol, 1972. Very Good+
A great soundtrack to a very strange film – a late Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor vehicle, with a very weird-sounding plot!

United Artists, 1969. Sealed
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever written by Dominic Frontiere – for this strange little comedy starring Alan Arkin as a father who's trying to give his kids away!

MGM, 1966. Near Mint-
An obscure 60s spy soundtrack from Lalo Schifrin – done with a style that's a bit different than some of his other work at the time! There's still a fair bit of the trademark Schifrin elements – bits of jazz, bossa, and Latin touches on the tunes – but there's also a style here ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, Late 60s. Very Good
An excellent trippy soundtrack – to a film we'd love to see, and which starred Charles Aznavour, Ringo Starr, John Astin, James Coburn, John Huston, Richard Burton, and Marlon Brando!

Virgin (UK), 1986. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1967. Sealed
A very hip soundtrack from Quincy Jones – yet another of his well-penned scores to accompany a film starred by Sidney Poitier! The album's maybe not as funky as some of Quincy's other work – but it more than makes up for it with some nice soulful touches that keep things real. One ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1970. Sealed
A mixed bag of styles, but a really groovy soundtrack overall – with some great moments! The film is a mad modern look at love and lovers – and as such, it's got a number of different themes to sum up the moods – including a few very nice vocal numbers that have hiply swinging ...
