Bliss Of Mrs Blossom

LP (Item 59358) RCA, 1968 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


The film's a very strange comedy starring Shirley MacLaine, and the soundtrack's pretty wild too! Most tracks are groovy 60s tunes with a mix of easy styles, and the album's also got a few nice vocal numbers that space things out nicely – and overall, the soundtrack's a real mix of styles that really keeps things entertaining! Jack Jones sings "The Way That I Live", The Spectrum sing "Let's Live For Love", Shirley sings the main title theme, and The New Vaudeville Band perform "I Think I'm Beginning To Fall In Love". Instrumental tunes include the Hammond-heavy "Rock Bottom", plus "I'd Rather Lead A Band", "Mr Blossom Goes Bust", "The Way That I Live", and "Mexican Merengue". (60s stereo pressing. Cover has wear.)  © 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.

Jack The Ripper
RCA, 1960. Very Good
Over the years, how many films have been made about this guy anyway? We've never seen the movie, but the record's a gem – some very edgy scoring by Pete Rugolo, the ex-Kenton arranger who went on to do some great crime jazz work for a number of labels. This work isn't exactly in that style, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pleasure Seekers
RCA, 1965. Very Good
A dreamy little soundtrack from Ann-Margret! The record features 4 unique vocal numbers by Ann – including "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Next Time", Something To Think About", and "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love" – plus instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album
Your Own Thing

... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1967. Sealed
Great grooviness from Neal Hefti – working here at the height of his 60s powers! The film stars Robert Morse, Barbara Harris, and Jonathan Winters – and the score's got a 60s screwball approach that mixes organ, woodwinds, percussion, and bits of strings together, all filtered through ... 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
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not as jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sandokan
RCA (Italy), 1976. Near Mint-
Quite a groovy soundtrack – even though it was recorded for a cheesy Sinbad ripoff! The work is by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, and the tracks mix exotic themes with more of a 70s instrumentation style – which makes them slightly funky at strange places. There's some nice Mandingo- ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1965. Sealed
One of the catchiest TV themes of the 60s – plus a whole batch of other groovy music too! Vic Mizzy really knocked himself out for the Addams Family TV show – coming up with the ultra-cool main theme, complete with low horn parts and that great snapping bit. But he also managed to ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1966. Good+
A great little album – filled with groovy numbers that recall all the charm of the Batman TV show! Hefti composed the original theme of "Batman", and although Nelson Riddle did the real soundtrack, Hefti does an excellent job here of capturing the spirit, possibly more so than on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Charade
RCA, 1963. Good+
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded! The main "Charade" theme is a total gem – performed here in both a guitar-h ... LP, Vinyl record album
Viva Max!
RCA, 1970. Very Good
Groovy and goofy stuff from Hirt and Montenegro – with cuts that include "March To The Alamo", "The Alamo Letter", "Don't Turn Back", "Viva Max March", "Paula's Theme", and "Sneaky Lady". LP, Vinyl record album
