Le Choix Des Armes

LP (Item 358029) DRG, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-
Strong work by a composer who's becoming one of our favorite French soundtrack artists! This score is fairly dramatic – but handled in a way that has subtle little touches of intimacy, with solo bass instrumentation by Ron Carter and Buster Williams. It's a dark set of tracks written for a crime thriller starring Yves Montand and Gerard Depardieu. The orchestra's led by Nat Peck, with direction by Peter Knight – and the overall quality of the tracks is right up there with some of Morricone's thriller work from the 70s.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has clear tape on the corners and light wear.)

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.

When we were impressionable little arty tykes, this was one of our favorite soundtracks.
