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.

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.

Penthouse
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint-
Johnnie Hawksworth composed, arranged, and conducted the music to this groovy Brit film which seems to feature a lot of scantily clad ladies running around in a penthouse! The music's a mix of jazzy tunes, easy numbers, and a few tracks with wildly clashing styles and sounds, and which have weird ... LP, Vinyl record album
