Shoes Of The Fisherman

LP (Item 59365) MGM, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.60 12

A dramatic score for this all-star, big-budget film about international intrigue – with a setting that runs from Red China to the Vatican, and a set of stars that includes Anthony Quinn, Oskar Werner, David Janssen, and Laurence Olivier. The tracks are all fairly straight orchestral ones, but handled with the usual North complexity and talent. The set's packaged in a very nice gatefold cover with a painted back cover montage – and titles include "Rome", "The Pope Advises Dr Faber", "Coronation", "Kiril's Loneliness", "The Election", and "Arrival Of The Cardinals". (Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Prestige, 1971. Very Good+
A hard to find Johnny Hammond album from the early 70's, recorded right before he teamed up with Larry Mizell, and before he did those LPs on Kudu with Bob James. The groove on this one shows his approach to those later styles, but it's also got more of the harder 70's jazz funk sound that you'd ... LP, Vinyl record album
