Lolita

LP (Item 57862) MGM, 1962 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A very groovy little soundtrack for this original film version of Lolita – directed by Stanley Kubrick with a screeplay by Nabokov himself. The album sports the famous "Lolita Theme", with a weird vocal part that goes "nya nya", and which became something of a minor instrumental hit at the time. About a third of the album is variations on that theme, and the rest of the album features darker tunes that get at the inherent sadness of the movie – standing in stark contrast next to the sillier theme numbers. Tracks include "Love Theme From Lolita", "Two Beat Society", "Thoughts Of Lolita", "School Dance", "Quilty's Theme", and "Lolita Ya Ya".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing in a gatefold cover, with light wear, 4 inch seam splits, and a small peeled spot from sticker removal.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Michel Legrand

Ice Station Zebra
MGM, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A strange one for Legrand – a soundtrack written for an obscure action film that starred Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Jim Brown, and Patrick McGoohan! The music is mostly orchestral and dramatic – but given Legrand's genius, it's touched with warm chromatic elements that occasionally ... LP, Vinyl record album

MGM, 1968. Near Mint-
A pretty nice action soundtrack from French composer Jacques Loussier – not as all-out groovy as some of his other work from the 60s, but filled with some nice touches that include jagged instrumentation over orchestrations, creating some jazzed-up bits that feel more like 60s crime jazz than ...

Africa
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A pretty serious orchestral score by Alex North, designed to accompany an ABC documentary about the changes in Africa during the 60s. Given that the documentary takes a look at the emerging politics and cultures in post-colonial Africa, it's amazing how white and western the soundtrack is – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Che!
Tetragrammaton, 1968. Very Good
A pretty cool score by Lalo Schifrin – one that's Latin, but not in the same bossa style as his other 60s albums. The film – as you can imagine – is about Che Guevara, and it stars poor Omar Sharif, who was forever pegged to play the "ethnic" star in films like this. ... LP, Vinyl record album
