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.

RCA, 1968. Very Good+
A great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry ...

Call us corny, but we really love this one! The musical's a brilliant summation of all the energy that went into American business in the postwar years – and offers a great parody on the corporate shenanigans of the Madison Avenue era. Robert Morse is fantastic in the lead role – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bonjour Tristesse
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
The great, bracing score to the fantastic Otto Preminger film, with music by Georges Auric, and nice dramatic saxophone passages. Juliette Greco sings the title song in a nice dramatic Frenchy fashion, and the whole thing does great justice to the steamy book by Francoise Sagan. LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1959. Very Good+
Stanley Wilson conducted the music to this 50s cop show called M-Squad, but the music was composed by him, Count Basie, and Benny Carter. Carter plays with the group, which also includes Red Mitchell, Pete Candoli, Frank Rosolino, and John Williams – and he's the only reed player, which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music From Mr Lucky
RCA, 1959. Very Good
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years!

Man From UNCLE
RCA, 1965. Very Good
An amazing little soundtrack that's almost better than the show for which it was written! The set's a landmark batch of work from Hugo Montenegro – working here in a jazzy style that has lots of 60s mod touches – traces of spy soundtrack influence, but a bit more straight ahead too ...

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
Seven Golden Men
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A fantastic score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one of his few 60s classics to get any sort of circulation in the US – and one of the best! The album's got loads of scatting vocals by his great group I Cantori Modern – alongside upbeat chase tracks, crime jazz, and even a ... LP, Vinyl record album
WEA (France), 1983. Near Mint-
A wonderful soundtrack from Georges Delerue – and proof that, no matter what the setting, his musical work is always top-shelf!
