O Lucky Man!

LP (Item 477057) Warner, 1973 — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold
A real standout effort from ex-Animal Alan Price – not just because it was the soundtrack for a film in which he starred, but also because it features some of his hippest tracks to date! Price has a great post-60s feel here that's a bit like the territory Georgie Fame was hitting at the time – still with some elements of his rougher, R&B-inspired style of the previous decade – but served up with a newly sophisticated approach to rhythms and vocalizing that really stand out. The whole thing's pretty hard to characterize with a few simple labels, but there's a nice sense of depth and play going on – due partly, no doubt, to the freedom that Price was given with the music by director Lindsay Anderson. Titles include "O Lucky Man", "Pastoral", "Arrival", "Look Over Your Shoulder", "Justice", "My Home Town", "Changes", and "Sell Sell".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Kung Fu
Warner, 1973. Near Mint-
Not as much of an all-out funk party as some other kung fu soundtracks of the 70s – but a really great record that's filled with plenty of great spoken bits too! The album's the soundtrack to the Kung Fu TV show, which starred David Carradine – and it's mostly made up of "Eastern&q ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone

Exorcist II – The Heretic
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sudden Impact & The Best Of Dirty Harry
Warner/Viva, 1970s/1983. Very Good+
Nice one! Clint Eastwood will forever be remembered for his groundbreaking tough guy work in the Dirty Harry films – but equally famous are Lalo Schifrin's funky soundtracks for the movies! The work is some of Schifrin's best – a mix of the jazzy style he created in the late 60s, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Nitzsche/Mick Jagger/Randy Newman

Performance – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Warner, 1970. Sealed
The jury is sometimes out on the Mick Jagger on-screen performance in the Nicolas Roeg film Performance – but the soundtrack is something pretty separate entirely, and really says a lot more about the spirit of late 60s Warner Brothers Records in LA than it does the arthouse cinema scene in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Nitzsche, Captain Beefheart & Others

Blue Collar – Original Soundtrack
MCA, 1978. Near Mint-
Some choice soundtrack work from Jack Nitzsche's prime 70s period, with a handful other tracks by Howlin' Wolf, Captain Beefhaeart and Ike & Tina Turner. For the most part the soundtrack is bluesy rootsy stuff, to go along with the slant of the film, but there is a great funky break on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA (Italy), Late 60s. Very Good+
A cool Italian album – featuring one side of the soundtrack of Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu (aka For A Few Dollars More), and the score to Per Un Pugno Di Dollari (aka Fistful Of Dollars)! The songs are short, but tense – and mix plodding solo instrumentation with some sparer dramatic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenyon Hopkins

Yellow Canary
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A lost jazzy score by Kenyon Hopkins – similar to his more famous work from the time, and featuring a great small group of players that includes Lalo Schifrin on piano, Zoot Sims on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Clark Terry on trumpet. Tracks alternate between some really swinging ... LP, Vinyl record album
