Day Of Anger

LP (Item 522288) RCA, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

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 occasional groovy touches that are mighty nice – offsetting the brooding quality of the Lee Van Cleef narrative with a mix of jazzy horns, electric guitar, and even these mod bottoms to some of the rhythms that are quite a surprise – and very welcome indeed! The cut "Fino All'Ultimo Colpo" is especially nice – kind of a slow-stepping romp that has a soulful power that's mighty nice – repeated three times alone in the main body of work.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner.)

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.
