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 some edge wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

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 ...

Arabesque
RCA, 1966. Very Good
Not as famous as other Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – but a gem through and through, and a record that really shows the maturing talents of the maestro! The album mixes together lush orchestrations with some of the lighter jazz you'd expect from Mancini – the latter a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Padre Padrone/Allonsanfan
RCA (Italy), 1974/1977. Near Mint-
Two rare 70s soundtracks! Allonsanfan is a lost 70s score from Ennio Morricone – penned for a period piece set in 19th Century Italy, and done with a driving, dramatic sort of feel! Some of the numbers here have that subdued orchestral mode that Morricone used at his most subtle moments ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ennio Morricone Gold Deluxe
RCA (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
A cool Japanese collection – filled with gems from the best soundtrack years of Ennio Morricone – with tracks from Once Upon A Time In The West, Citta Violenta, For A Few Dollars More, Return of Ringo, and other classic films! LP, Vinyl record album
Two For The Road
RCA, 1967. Sealed
A wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does a wonderful job of hitting the perfect blend of sentiment and whimsy to match the movie – offering some tunes that have a solid ... LP, Vinyl record album
Run For Your Wife
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
A lovely groover – one of the swinginest soundtracks penned by Nino during the 60s, written for a sex comedy starring Uno Tognazzi and Juliet Prowse. The feel of the work is great – somewhere between Piero Piccioni and John Barry – with a mixture of strings, tight rhythms, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fistful Of Dollars
RCA, 1967. Very Good
A landmark record – not only in the history of the western, but in that of Ennio Morricone! The soundtrack, written for this hit Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, is everything you'd want in a 60s western – driving orchestral passages, twanging guitar parts, and spooky little bits that ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Entracte, 1957. Sealed
Although the title of the film (and book, and TV series) soon became a synonym for sex and sin, the largely orchestral score to the movie is far less sexy than you'd expect. Franz Waxman handled the scoring of the film in pretty much the same way as he'd handled a lot of his other classic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fortune Cookie
United Artists, 1966. Very Good
A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
