Streetcar Named Desire/Great Film Music (Since You Went Away/Now Voyager/The Informer)

LP (Item 609142) Angel, Early 50s — Condition: Sealed

Alex North's wonderful score for the Elia Kazan production of Streetcar Named Desire – a soundtrack that's filled with a fair bit of jazz touches, and which almost comes off with an Elmer Bernstein sort of feel! The music's quite dark and evocative – wonderfully played throughout, with a snakey sort of brilliance that matches the images in the film. Ray Heindorf conducted, and titles include "Streetcar", "Four Deuces", "Blanche", "Della Robia Blue", "Flores", "Mania", and "Lust". The B-side includes film music of Max Steiner.  © 1996-2020, 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.

Epic, 1957. Very Good+
A dark little soundtrack to this mid 50s film that starred Sal Mineo as a scrawny JD (what else!) The tracks are mostly orchestral, but have a bit of Elmer Bernstein or Leith Stevens type jazz in them – blaring out from time to time amidst the strings to set the dangerous mood of the film. ...

Warner, 1981. Sealed Gatefold
One of the coolest soundtracks ever for a Burt Reynolds film – an a hip mix of soul and jazz tracks that's gone onto become a classic over the years!

Last Tango In Paris
United Artists, 1972. Sealed
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 ...

George Duning

World Of Suzie Wong
RCA, 1960. Very Good+
A strange film, but a great soundtrack! George Duning came up with an excellent batch of jazzy tracks for the film – and most of them swing hard and tightly, with strong jazzy solos, in a manner that's similar to some of Mancini's best scores of the late 50s. A number of tracks have odd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Cop Show Themes
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove!

Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tasty small group work from Groove – with Mr Holmes himself on organ, and the great Larry Willis on electric piano – coming up with a twin electric organ/piano sound that's similar to the one that Groove used on his Comin On Home LP for Blue Note. The difference here is that things ... LP, Vinyl record album
