Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming

LP (Item 55588) United Artists, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
(€2.53 || £2.25 || ¥334) (approx.)

Despite the silly title and plot of this one – and despite the cover image by Jack Davis, which might imply some more groovy tunes – the overall record is pretty straight comedy scoring work, touched by some military themes, in keeping with the Russian invasion plot of the film. Overall, the soundtrack does have some decent enough comedic touches – but mostly in the whimsical orchestral mode, and less in the groovy instrumental one. Titles include "Hop Along", "Volga Boat Song", "Escorts Away", "The Airport", and "Sailors Chorus". Also includes "The Shining Sea", written by Peggy Lee, and sung by Irene Kral! (Cover has a split top seam, a cutout hole, and some wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
