Hang 'Em High

LP (Item 56363) United Artists, 1968 — Condition: Sealed

One of the more famous western soundtracks of the late 60s – a set with a great theme that's well known by many – blended here with some other great spaghetti western elements and a bit more Hollywood drama! The "Hang Em High" theme has some nice twangy guitar touches backed with horns – and it's featured a few times on the album – and other tracks have a sparer, starker sort of dramatic feel, with strings emphasizing the mood in sweeps and swelling passages that are mighty nice. Titles include "Rachel", "Tumbleweed Wagon", "Bordello", and "They Took Me".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

John Barry & Nancy Sinatra

You Only Live Twice
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint-
A great little James Bond soundtrack – written for one of the lesser-remembered Bond films, but filled with nice moments! There's a darker, moodier feel here than on some of Barry's other Bond scores – lots of stretched out tracks that have a bit more space than usual, and odd ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Barry/Tom Jones

Thunderball
United Artists, 1965. Very Good
One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Barry/Shirley Bassey

Goldfinger
United Artists, 1964. Very Good
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Early 80s. Very Good+
Wild music from one of the weirdest Jim Henson creations ever – the oft-maligned Fraggle Rock – which was kind of a sing-songy lesser cousin to The Muppet Show! The Fraggles were almost wayward hippies – especially considering that the show ran in the mid 80s – and they ... LP, Vinyl record album

Decca, Mid 50s. Very Good+
A relatively dramatic score – written by Alex North, and conducted by Lionel Newman. The work is in the style of North's other work from the time – mostly serious, with a fair bit of string heavy passages and dark overtones. Cover has a photo of Yul Brynner (with hair!) kissing Joanne ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Oklahoma Crude
RCA, 1973. Near Mint-
An unusual one for Henry Mancini – and a real depature from his usual groovy soundtrack work, in favor of a western-themed batch of tunes! As you'd guess from the title, the album's got a distinct "Texas" sound – with tracks that kind of mosey along in a spaghetti western ... LP, Vinyl record album
