Route 66 & Other TV Themes

LP (Item 476189) Capitol, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good-

Some of the grooviest Nelson Riddle albums recorded for Capitol – both of them swinging sets based around popular TV themes of the 50s and 60s! Nelson's no stranger to that sort of work, and both albums are warm, wonderful, and filled with plenty of jazzy touches that open up the tunes tremendously. Riddle's got the set's banked in sliding strings with jazzier instrumentation over the top – in a mode that's a bit like Henry Mancini, and which makes for some wonderful contrasts. There's loads and loads of wonderful numbers on the sets, and titles include "The Untouchables", "Route 66", "Dr Kildare", "Stoney Burke", "Dick Van Dyke", "New Naked City Theme", "Lucy Theme", "McHale's Navy", and "My Three Sons".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.
