Yellow Rolls Royce

LP (Item 51315) MGM, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Although Riz certainly did some groovy work during the late 60s in Italy, this score's pretty straight stuff – mostly period tunes with a lush rich feel. The album does include the original version of "Forget Domani", which became a vocal hit for Sinatra. Other tunes include "Finale", "Going To Soriano", "Yellow Rolls Royce", "Eloise", and "Mae".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging.)

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.

Riz Ortolani

Day Of Anger
RCA, 1970. Very Good
A really great little western score from Riz Ortolani – a composer you might know from bigger films of the 60s, and a handful of especially nice action and comedy soundtracks too! Riz seems to be drawing on the latter a bit here – as he mixes the usual western elements with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riz Ortolani

Africa Addio
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+
Although this one's got a striking picture of Africa on the front cover, a pretty captivating title, and an Italian name in the composer credits, it's actually a pretty straight soundtrack – mostly strings and orchestral passages, handled in the dramatic mode that Ortolani used often on some ...

Africa
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A pretty serious orchestral score by Alex North, designed to accompany an ABC documentary about the changes in Africa during the 60s. Given that the documentary takes a look at the emerging politics and cultures in post-colonial Africa, it's amazing how white and western the soundtrack is – ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A dramatic score for this all-star, big-budget film about international intrigue – with a setting that runs from Red China to the Vatican, and a set of stars that includes Anthony Quinn, Oskar Werner, David Janssen, and Laurence Olivier. The tracks are all fairly straight orchestral ones, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Grusin/Teddy Randazzo

Girl From UNCLE
MGM, 1966. Sealed Gatefold
One of the greatest spy soundtracks of the 60s – a very groovy batch of tracks written for Stefanie Powers' brief TV show, The Girl From UNCLE! The music here is better than the male version of the UNCLE franchise – hip 60s spy themes, done in a groovy style for the television audience ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best! The groove here is really unique – a spare blend of bossa influences, jazzy organ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riz Ortolani & Nino Oliviero

Mondo Cane
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of the first big international soundtracks to come from the Italian scene in the 60s – the start of a great run that would continue through the decade, although maybe not with results as strongly as this! The score is for a strange documentary-like film (the title means "World Gone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spy Who Loved Me
United Artists, 1977. Near Mint-
Carly Simon makes a big appearance here – singing the hit title track "Nobody Does It Better" – one of the highest-charting Bond film tunes of the 70s! But our favorites are the instrumental songs – handled by Marvin Hamlisch here with a sound that's perhaps a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Mandel/Ahmad Jamal

MASH
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint-
A very unusual little soundtrack – almost more of an audio documentary of the film than a record itself! Although Johnny Mandel's score for the movie was plenty darn great, there's very little of it here – because about 80% of the record features jokes and dialogue from the film by ...

There's a surprising amount of Motown material on here for a James Coburn/Shirley MacLaine film! Includes "There's More Where That Came From" and "Take Me Away" by The Temptations, "And So It Begins" and "Turn Up The Music" by Syreeta, "Bass ... LP, Vinyl record album
