Rogues – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 379998) RCA, 1964 — Condition: Very Good+

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 light wear and some marker on back. Labels have some marker.)  © 1996-2018, 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.
