Odd Couple

LP (Item 56062) Dot, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple! The record mixes music from the film with snippets of dialogue – and titles include "Clean Poker", "The Odd Couple", "End Title", "Curse Of The Cat People", "Dirty Poker", "Metropole", and "Down With The Lights". (Shrinkwrap has a large hole at the 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.

RCA, 1965. Near Mint-
Did anyone actually ever see this movie? Even if not, the music's pretty darn great! The film's a weird comedy directed by John Rich, and starring the unlikely team of Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis – plus some hotties as stewardesses. The best part, most likely, is this fab soundtrack by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Experiment In Terror
RCA, 1962. Very Good+
A killer soundtrack from Henry Mancini – a record that's got both the terror promised in the title, and some sweeter moments that are pure Mancini all the way! Instrumentation is relatively jazzy overall – with some tight horn passages that shift between swinging saxes and lighter ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue
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
Walk On The Wild Side
Choreo/AVA, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of Elmer Bernstein's best soundtracks of the 60s – written for this film set in the brothels of New Orleans in the 30s, with a mix of jazz and dramatic themes. The best cuts are the jazz-based ones – tunes that come across with more of a 60s groove than you'd expect, given the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Quincy Jones score for this lost film starring Sidney Poitier.

Sylvia
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. About half of this one has a very similar feel – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Seven Golden Men
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of the best-ever euro soundtracks on United Artists! Lots of great Italian sixties scoring by Armando Trovajoli, with lots of jazzy crime music (this is a heist movie, apparently), and really cool Swingle Singers-sounding vocals by a group called I.Cantori Moderni. The sound is great, very ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deadly Affair
Verve, Late 60s. Sealed
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

One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing!
