Klute – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 594992) WS, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

A genius soundtrack by Michael Small – not really a household name in the soundtrack business, but a composer we've always loved for this early 70s masterpiece! The music is an amazing mix of spare stripped-down instrumental passages, plus heavier, fuzzier, funked-up ones – all nicely offset to match the incredible mood and style of the original film! Some tracks have an eerie disembodied voice running through them, while cool keyboards and basslines throb underneath – others are more straight-ahead groovy, with a heavier drum sound that's right on the cusp of mellow soundtrack funk. The whole thing's great – a real standout that's finally getting its due – and tracks include "Bree's Abandon", "Rooftop Intruder", "The Tape", "Checking Leads", "Lounge Music", "Club Scene", "The Watcher", "Cable's End", and "Leaving The City".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light ringwear, some splitting in the spine, and light aging on back.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.
