Serpico

LP (Item 466228) Paramount, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-

Mikis Thedorakis might seem an odd choice to score a film set on the mean streets of New York – but he gets some wonderful help here from Bob James, who helps ensure that the funky tracks come off nice and sweet! Thedorakis serves up the main theme with a haunting, slightly "ethnic" quality used to underscore the no-nonsense quality and deep soul of Frank Serpico – but many other tunes show a much more electric, jazzy style – arranged by James in modes that echo 70s soundtrack work of Don Ellis, Dave Grusin, and others. There's no totally heavy funk tracks, but the album's got plenty of nice moments – and titles include "Honest Cop", "Alone In The Apartment", "Shoe Shop", "On The Streets", "Flashback", and "Disillusion".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small cutout hole and cutout notch.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Day The Fish Came Out
20th Century, 1967. Near Mint-
A very groovy little soundtrack – with a mixture of Zorba The Greek type Greek themes, plus hippy dippy psyche touches, and even a bit of Barbarella-like fuzz! The film imagines a 1972 in which hippies kind of go crazy in Greece – and the "future hippy" style of the music ... LP, Vinyl record album

Play It Again Sam
Paramount, 1972. Sealed
The soundtrack to Allen's famous film of the early 70s, based on a play that he's also written. Most of the record is dialogue from the film – or really monologues, since Allen talking is the main crux of the action. There's some incidental music, but think of this more as a comedy record ...

Our Man Flint

Excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with ... LP, Vinyl record album
