Nelson Riddle — Rogues – Original Soundtrack ... CD 16.99

A wonderful lost Nelson Riddle soundtrack – scored for the "gentlemen criminal" show The Rogues, which ran briefly on NBC during the mid 60s – starring Charles Boyer, Gig Young, and David Niven! The work is some of our favorite by Riddle during the period – lightly dreamy with strings one minute, and upbeat and jazzy the next – a full summation of the genius he'd developed during his years at Capitol, and made even better by some really swinging tunes! There's almost a Henry Mancini vibe to the whole thing, but the music also shows some of Riddle's more complex approaches to scoring – and the group features performances by west coast jazz musicians who include Plas Johnson and Harry Klee on reeds, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bob Bain on guitar, and Dick Nash on trombone. Titles include "A Rogue In Rio", "From Rogues To Riches", "Gig", "Marcel", "Ilsa", "Latin Lady", and "One For The Rogue". (Mono Dynagroove pressing with deep groove. Cover has a promo stamp & light wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Paris When It Sizzles
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+
Audrey Hepburn's back in Paris again – fooling around with another older man! This time it's William Holden, but fortunately Nelson Riddle's along for the ride to keep the music nice and groovy. Most of the stuff on here's kind of Frenchy instrumental, with the cliched kind of sound you'd ... LP, Vinyl record album
Untouchables
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good-
A surprisingly nice score from Riddle – and pretty different than most late 50s crime jazz LPs! There's a number of tracks on here that have a period setting, in keeping with the locale of the TV show – but there's others that are really wonderful orchestral numbers, shaded with the ...

RCA, 1967. Sealed
Great grooviness from Neal Hefti – working here at the height of his 60s powers! The film stars Robert Morse, Barbara Harris, and Jonathan Winters – and the score's got a 60s screwball approach that mixes organ, woodwinds, percussion, and bits of strings together, all filtered through ...

Experiment In Terror
RCA, 1962. Very Good
A killer soundtrack from Henry Mancini – a record that's got both the terror promised in the title, and some sweeter moments that are pure Mancini all the way! Instrumentation is relatively jazzy overall – with some tight horn passages that shift between swinging saxes and lighter ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not as jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mr Lucky Goes Latin
RCA, 1961. Very Good
One of Henry Mancini's best soundtracks – made even better! The score for Mr. Lucky was a masterpiece of jazzy little themes – and it's always been one that we've loved way better than Peter Gunn or some of Mancini's other more famous work. Here, Mancini redoes that music with a west ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1965. Sealed
One of the catchiest TV themes of the 60s – plus a whole batch of other groovy music too! Vic Mizzy really knocked himself out for the Addams Family TV show – coming up with the ultra-cool main theme, complete with low horn parts and that great snapping bit. But he also managed to ...

Jack The Ripper
RCA, 1960. Very Good
Over the years, how many films have been made about this guy anyway? We've never seen the movie, but the record's a gem – some very edgy scoring by Pete Rugolo, the ex-Kenton arranger who went on to do some great crime jazz work for a number of labels. This work isn't exactly in that style, ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1966. Good+
A great little album – filled with groovy numbers that recall all the charm of the Batman TV show! Hefti composed the original theme of "Batman", and although Nelson Riddle did the real soundtrack, Hefti does an excellent job here of capturing the spirit, possibly more so than on ...

World Of Suzie Wong
RCA, 1960. Very Good-
A strange film, but a great soundtrack! George Duning came up with an excellent batch of jazzy tracks for the film – and most of them swing hard and tightly, with strong jazzy solos, in a manner that's similar to some of Mancini's best scores of the late 50s. A number of tracks have odd ... LP, Vinyl record album
