Americanization Of Emily

LP (Item 55580) Reprise, 1964 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP


One of those soundtracks that outlived the life of the film – or at least the theme did! "Emily" is one of the best ballads to be penned in the 60s – a dreamy number offered up here in a number of different ways by Johnny Mandel – with strings, reeds, and in larger orchestral passages. The work is very similar to Mandel's sublime score for The Sandpiper – another film that had a hugely popular theme, but which kind of tanked as a cinematic outing! Titles include "The Next Day", "Condolence Call", "Surprise", "Tea Party", and "Vacation In Sussex". (Tri-color mono pressing.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

A great soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the best tunes are the swinging vocal numbers, like "Give A Little More", "Come Live ... LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group!

A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics!
