Bandolero

LP (Item 59398) Project 3, 1968 — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold

A way cooler soundtrack than you might expect – not only different than the usual western score of the time, but surprisingly sophisticated work for a movie that featured stars like Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Raquel Welch, and George Kennedy! The music was conducted by Lionel Newman, and it's often got this sense of spareness and space that really makes things magical – sounds just hanging there in air, isolated instruments moving in Morricone-like fashion, yet in ways that still occasionally have some of the boldness you'd expect from Jerry Goldsmith too. The themes are often personal, almost romantic – yet never soppy, and occasionally inflected with exotic elements that really keeps things interesting. Titles include "El Jefe", "The Bait", "Ambushed", "A Bad Day For Hanging", and "Sabinas".  © 1996-2021, 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.
