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.

Marvin Hamlisch

Swimmer
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint-
A great early soundtrack from Marvin Hamlisch – quite different than some of his more famous work of the 70s, and filled with some wonderfully whimsical touches! The music was scored for a strange film that features Burt Lancaster "swimming" his way across a town – moving ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sol Kaplan

Young Lovers
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
A pretty nice little soundtrack from a period when Columbia was sneaking out some great material in the genre!

A cool Italian album – featuring one side of the soundtrack of Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu (aka For A Few Dollars More), and the score to Per Un Pugno Di Dollari (aka Fistful Of Dollars)! The songs are short, but tense – and mix plodding solo instrumentation with some sparer dramatic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenyon Hopkins

Yellow Canary
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A lost jazzy score by Kenyon Hopkins – similar to his more famous work from the time, and featuring a great small group of players that includes Lalo Schifrin on piano, Zoot Sims on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Clark Terry on trumpet.

Jerry Goldsmith

Capricorn One
Warner, 1978. Very Good+
A bold score for a famous 70s astronaut film – penned by Jerry Goldsmith with almost the same sort of drama he might bring to a war thriller! The story itself is pretty dark – as the astronauts don't make it to space, but are forced into a Air Force base – and Goldsmith's music ... LP, Vinyl record album
