Hawaiians – Original Motion Picture Score

LP (Item 59369) United Artists, 1970 — Condition: Sealed
A dramatic score by Mancini – but a really nice one, thanks to lots of exotic percussion touches – often played by Emil Richards! Overall, the record's kind of a late 60s take on the exotica of Les Baxter's earlier Capitol recordings – with lots of dreamy tunes that conjure up the feel of the south seas and the east. Titles include "Music For A Japanese Bath", "Quiet Thoughts", "Molakai", "The Streets Of Chinatown", and "Auntie's Theme".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing, still sealed with a cut corner and a round sticker in front. Shrinkwrap has a hole at the bottom right corner.)

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.

Great stuff! This is the "alternate" version of Michel Legrand's great score to Les Demoiselles De Rochefort – and it's totally great all the way through!

Elmer Bernstein

God's Little Acre
United Artists, 1958. Sealed
Elmer Bernstein's score for the sexy late 50s film based on Erskine Caldwell's book – done with a mix of southern styles, jazzy bits, and fuller orchestrations!

United Artists, Mid 60s. Sealed
A fantastic score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one of his few 60s classics to get any sort of circulation in the US – and one of the best! The album's got loads of scatting vocals by his great group I Cantori Modern – alongside upbeat chase tracks, crime jazz, and even a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gato Barbieri

Last Tango In Paris
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
One of the greatest moments ever from saxophonist Gato Barbieri – and that's saying a lot, given that by the time of this recording, he'd already had a great 60s run as an avant jazz musician, and started the 70s with a string of albums that criss-crossed jazz and South American musical ...

Mikis Theodorakis

Phaedra
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A really dark little soundtrack – penned by Mikis Theodorakis for Jules Dassin's remake of the Phaedra myth!

Georges Delerue

King Of Hearts
United Artists, 1967. Sealed
A nice little Georges Delerue score to this quirky and sentimental film from the mid 60s. The tunes are all relatively short – and a mixture of Delerue's usual French-tinged themes with other tracks that have a bit more of a regal composure, in keeping with the performance of Alan Bates in ...

One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best!

Blue Collar – Original Soundtrack
MCA, 1978. Near Mint-
Some choice soundtrack work from Jack Nitzsche's prime 70s period, with a handful other tracks by Howlin' Wolf, Captain Beefhaeart and Ike & Tina Turner. For the most part the soundtrack is bluesy rootsy stuff, to go along with the slant of the film, but there is a great funky break on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
