A wonderful wonderful soundtrack – recorded to accompany the strange horror/soap opera show Dark Shadows! The music is really weird – moogy at times, groovy at others – with lots of cool late 60s touches like fuzzy guitar, electric piano, and floating string and woodwind passages that have a really dark edge. Many of the tracks feature narration by stars Jonathan Frid and David Selby – creating a spooky sort of ghost story feel. And some of the even better tunes are instrumentals, with surprisingly groovy guitar in the front – creating an almost Ventures-like horror sound! Titles include "No 1 At The Blue Whale", "When I Am Dead", "Meditations", "I'll Be With You Always", "Josette's Theme", "Dark Shadows 2 Collinwood", "Shadows Of Night", "Seance", and "I Barnabas".

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Satyricon
United Artists, 1970. Very Good+
A really wild soundtrack to a really wild film – a movie set in pagan Rome, and one of the most offbeat Fellini films to ever hit the screen – which is quite a lot, given the director's other oeuvre!

Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Although Manos Hadjidakis' soundtrack work of the 60s is mostly in the Greek-sounding mode, this one features him hitting a bit of a western soundtrack feel – to back a drama starring Terence Stamp, Ricardo Montalban, and Karl Malden.

Live & Let Die
United Artists, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Arguably one of the most successful James Bond soundtracks of the 70s – written for one of the most successful Bond films of the decade. The real standout, of course, is the title cut by Wings – the excellent "Live & Let Die", a sublime rock number that manages to capture ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, Mid 60s. Very Good
Although Riz certainly did some groovy work during the late 60s in Italy, this score's pretty straight stuff – mostly period tunes with a lush rich feel. The album does include the original version of "Forget Domani", which became a vocal hit for Sinatra. Other tunes include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1981. Near Mint-
One of Jerry Goldsmith's darker scores of the later years – a really spooky bit of music for this eerie sci-fi movie!

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!

Light, Early 70s. Very Good
One of the strangest chapters in the history of the breakbeat!
