Did anyone out there ever see this film? The movie seems to be an Acapulco-set action comedy – with Charles Grodin, Farrah Fawcett Majors, and Art Carney! The score's as cheesy as the movie – about half instrumental tunes put together by Brit sound library composer John Cameron, handled with a slinky sex-in-the-sun kind of feel – on titles that include "Ellie", "Run Ellie Run", "Ellie (disco)", "Danger Ellie Danger", and "Our Man In Acapulco". The other tracks are by 10CC ("The Things We Do For Love", "Sunburn", "I'm Mandy, Fly Me"), Heatwave ("This Night We Fell" and "One Night Tan"), and Kandidate ("I Don't Wanna Lose You").  © 1996-2017, 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.

MGM, Late 60s. Very Good+
This one's got a bluesy jazz approach – set by Ray Charles' version of the title theme, and followed through by Lalo's great instrumental tracks – which mix strings, soul, and just the right jazzy touches to keep things moving along with a subtle groove. Ttiles include "The ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1966. Very Good-
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Varese, 1958. Very Good+
A Sinbad movie, but one that's put together with a really rich soundtrack – possibly done with more care than the images on the screen for the film! The setting and story are a bit schlocky, but the music is actually classic Herrmann – a very powerful score with loads of dramatic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live & Let Die
United Artists, 1973. Sealed Gatefold
Arguably one of the most successful James Bond soundtracks of the 70s – written for one of the most successful Bond films of the decade. The real standout, of course, is the title cut by Wings – the excellent "Live & Let Die", a sublime rock number that manages to capture ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic! This great Burt Bacharach score to an obscure film has some of his most fantastic orchestrations ever. The sound is cool, breezy, and with some amazing changes that make you gasp anew at his genius. Dionne Warwick sings on some tracks, and it's nice to hear her do material that you're ...

Obsession
London/Phase 4, 1976. Very Good+
Herrmann's back in fine form on this mid 70s score for a Brian DePalma thriller – lots of swirling orchestral themes, handled here with a good degree of space, which makes the stronger musical statements really pack a punch! Titles include "Court's Confession", "The ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good+
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems ... LP, Vinyl record album
Silent Running
Decca, 1971. Sealed
Peter Schickele – aka PDQ Bach – did the soundtrack for this creepy early 70s space thriller, and it's a lot different than most of the work he did under his more famous pseudonym. Most tracks are spare and spooky – with some off-kilter strings that give a bit of a spacey feel, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Project 3, 1974. Sealed
The US release of 3 soundtracks to films produced by Dino De Laurentis – the best of which is Roy Budd's Stone Killer. The soundtrack is one of the darkest Budd scores ever, designed to accompany a brutal police film starring Charles Bronson. The main theme has a nice electronic sound that's ...

Midnight Cowboy
United Artists, 1969. Very Good+
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – ... LP, Vinyl record album
