Skatetown USA

LP (Item 606960) Columbia, 1979 — Condition: Sealed
A great Columbia Records anthology from the glory days of the rollerskating film – a set that features "Boogie Wonderland" by The Emotions, "Boogie Nights" by Heatwave, "Shake Your Body" by The Jacksons, "Perfect Dancer" by Marily McCoo & Billy Davis Jr, "Under My Thumb" by The Ounds, "Roller Girl" by John Sebastian, and original tracks "Skatetown USA", "I Fell In Love", and "Feelin Alright" by Dave Mason.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.


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.

Sol Kaplan

Young Lovers
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
A pretty nice little soundtrack from a period when Columbia was sneaking out some great material in the genre! The album features tracks by Kaplan that run through a variety of moods – some are orchestral and dramatic, but there's also some good groovy numbers too – a few nice, almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Barry

Columbia, 1966. Very Good
A lesser-known moment of genius from John Barry – quite different than his work for the James Bond films of the time! Barry's working here in a mix of more ambitious orchestral themes – dark, brooding, and moody – but also interspersed with some lighter jazzier numbers that are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1984. Near Mint-

Columbia, 1971. Sealed
(Shrink has light wear and a sticker mark.) LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Nitzsche, Willy De Ville, Mutiny, & Others

Columbia/Lorimar, 1980. Near Mint-
Strange mix of tracks for this film that has Al Pacino going undercover in New York's gay scene of the 70s. Most of the tracks are discrete songs, not instrumentals, and produced by Nitzsche. Jerome Bailey and Mutiny turn in one funk number called "Lump", and other tracks include "L ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone

Fistful Of Dollars
RCA, 1967. Very Good
A landmark record – not only in the history of the western, but in that of Ennio Morricone! The soundtrack, written for this hit Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, is everything you'd want in a 60s western – driving orchestral passages, twanging guitar parts, and spooky little bits that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (France), Early 1970s. Sealed
Includes themes from Heureux Qui Comme Ulysse, Black Orpheus, To Die In Madrid, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Slogan, Les Parisiennes, Jules & Jim, and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Ken Thorne/John Williams

Superman II – Original Soundtrack
Warner, 1981. Very Good

With selections by New Order, Cabaret Voltaire, Arthur Baker, The Hood, Dominique, and Jumpin' Jesus. LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Legrand

MCA, 1973. Near Mint-
Breezy indeed – as the record has a light, floating approach that's every bit the best part of Legrand's work in the 70s! The album's mostly instrumentals – strings soaring over slinky bass and sublimated rhythms, in the manner of the best post-60s French soundtracks, occasionally ... LP, Vinyl record album
