David & Lisa

LP (Item 54871) AVA, 1962 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Side one of this LP isn't much to write home about – dramatic orchestral music, written by Mark Lawrence, and conducted by Norman Paris – dark stuff to accompany the film in the title. Side two is great, though – jazzy "impressions" of the main themes, played by a group that's led by Victor Feldman, with a free lyrical approach that's better than most of his other work from the time. Titles include "Theme From David & Lisa", "David & Lisa's Love Song", "Paree Paree Paree", and "Clock Smash". (Stereo pressing.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

One of Jerry Goldsmith's darker scores of the later years – a really spooky bit of music for this eerie sci-fi movie!

One of the strangest chapters in the history of the breakbeat!

Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good

Bell, Early 70s. Near Mint-
An unbelievably fantastic soundtrack – written for the silly sequel to the film Born Free! Howard Blake lays down some amazingly funky instrumental tracks that have a light "jungle" sound – with lots of rolling bass and hard drums in a sweet late 60s funky sort of style. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morricone's scores for these two films in the Ringo series – both from Italy, and filled with tunes that are perhaps a bit more comical than some of Morricone's darker scoring for spaghetti westerns.
