The subtle genius of Stanley Myers isn't always as well appreciated as his contemporaries in the 60s soundtrack business – but a record like this will more than have you digging Stan's talents, as he mixes together numbers that run through a range of soundtrack styles – from fuzzy, to serious, to groovy, to Brit whimsical, to Bacharach breezy. Vocals on 2 numbers are by Don Partridge, and on one more are by Alex Keenan – and titles include "Tell Her You Love Her", "Mock Baroque Rock", "Persian Version", "Fuzz", "Homeless Bones", "The Good The Bad & The Simply Disgusting", and "Sauna Corner".  © 1996-2017, 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.

Warner, Late 60s. Very Good
Great work from Earl Hagen – one of TV's better composers, as you'll hear from this tight set of tracks! The core mode of the music is crime jazz, but Hagen also adds in a lot of dramatic flourishes and contemplative passages – and the show's exotic locales (Mexico, Japan, Burma, Hong ...

Two For The Road
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
A wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does a wonderful job of hitting the perfect blend of sentiment and whimsy to match the movie – offering some tunes that have a solid ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1966. Very Good-
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1967. Sealed
Fantastic stuff, and one of our favorite soundtracks of all time! The score is filled with beautiful haunting melodies by Francis Lai, and the instrumentation includes spare spooky electric keyboards and organ, swirling churning strings, and a lone lonely trumpet. Plus, a few tracks have some very ... LP, Vinyl record album
On the Beach
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good
A pretty serious soundtrack to this depressing film about the aftermath of global nuclear war. The tracks are all dark and dramatic – with heavy use of strings, and some isolated instrumenation that steps sadly through the backings. Titles include "The Boat Race", "Australian ... LP, Vinyl record album
Valley Of The Dolls
20th Century, 1967. Sealed
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Raging Moon
Columbia (UK), 1971. Very Good+

To Sir, With Love
Fontana, Late 60s. Very Good-
A pretty groovy soundtrack – one that goes way past the hit! Sure, this one's always been famous for the wonderful track "To Sir With Love" – done here in 3 versions by the young and lovely Lulu, who also starred in the film. But the record's also got some great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the best-ever Lalo Schifrin LPs! It's got a very cool organ-driven keyboard sound, tight jazzy arrangements, and a great set of themes like "Once a Thief", "The Cat", "The Man From Thrush", and "Blues a Go Go". Very swingin', very cool, and recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kaleidoscope
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good+
A very groovy soundtrack from the great Stanley Myers! The setting of the film is mod London – and Stan's come up with some very cool tunes that mix together 60s easy, trippy instrumentation, and a bit of that go-go groove. Instrumentation includes a bit of sitar and tabla – mixed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Charade
RCA, 1963. Good+
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded! The main "Charade" theme is a total gem – performed here in both a guitar-h ... LP, Vinyl record album
Midnight Cowboy
United Artists, 1969. Very Good+
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – ... LP, Vinyl record album
