Born Losers – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 55279) Tower, 1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A pretty wild film – even as far as biker films like these go – directed by TC Frank, and featuring Jane Russell as a special guest star! The Sidewalk Sounds contribute a number of instrumentals to the soundtrack – guitar/bass/drum numbers that are in the feel of, although not as fuzzy as, contemporary work by Davie Allan & The Arrows. Terry Stafford sings two vocal numbers – and titles include "The Born Loser's Dirge", "Alone Never To Love Again", "Billy Jack's Theme", "Born Loser's Stripper", "Vicki's Theme", "Forgive Me", and "The Loser's Bar". (Cover has a split bottom seam and half split top.)  © 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.

Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. Sealed 2LP
A sweet little soundtrack – filled with the sort of late 70s/early 80s gems you'd expect from this movie by Richard Linklater!

Tower, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America.

Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Although Manos Hadjidakis' soundtrack work of the 60s is mostly in the Greek-sounding mode, this one features him hitting a bit of a western soundtrack feel – to back a drama starring Terence Stamp, Ricardo Montalban, and Karl Malden. About half the tracks are instrumentals with an ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1976. Very Good
Quincy Jones may be best remembered for his funky soundtrack work of the 70s – but the man can also hit a deeper, more serious vein when he wants – as he does on this ambitious album-length project inspired by the landmark Roots mini-series! The music isn't a straight soundtrack from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music From Mr Lucky
RCA, 1959. Very Good
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years!

Cross & The Switchblade
Light, Early 70s. Very Good
One of the strangest chapters in the history of the breakbeat! When this weird soundtrack to a religious film starring Pat Boone came out, who'd have thought that it would become one of the most sought-after soundtracks for hip hoppers. Released on the tiny religious label, Light, the album's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deadly Affair
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good-
A sublime soundtrack from Quincy! The score has a great approach that mixes crime jazz tunes with breezier numbers – inflected with a nice bossa sound, and a cool "jazz over the top" style that makes the melodies linger nicely long after they're done! Astrud Gilberto sings the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good
David Raksin's most famous soundtrack work was his score for the film Laura – a brilliant suite of strings and melody, with a really haunting refrain that forever got "Laura" covered again and again over the years.
