Vikings (60s pressing)

LP (Item 717729) United Artists, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

(60s red and black label stereo pressing.)

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.

Africa Addio
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+
Although this one's got a striking picture of Africa on the front cover, a pretty captivating title, and an Italian name in the composer credits, it's actually a pretty straight soundtrack – mostly strings and orchestral passages, handled in the dramatic mode that Ortolani used often on some ...

You Only Live Twice
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint-
A great little James Bond soundtrack – written for one of the lesser-remembered Bond films, but filled with nice moments! There's a darker, moodier feel here than on some of Barry's other Bond scores – lots of stretched out tracks that have a bit more space than usual, and odd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hang 'Em High
United Artists, 1968. Sealed
One of the more famous western soundtracks of the late 60s – a set with a great theme that's well known by many – blended here with some other great spaghetti western elements and a bit more Hollywood drama! The "Hang Em High" theme has some nice twangy guitar touches backed ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Barry/Tom Jones

Thunderball
United Artists, 1965. Very Good
One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have ... LP, Vinyl record album

Goldfinger
United Artists, 1964. Very Good
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning ... LP, Vinyl record album

Koyaanisqatsi
Antilles, 1983. Near Mint-
One of the first film scores ever done by Philip Glass – and a sublime batch of music that exposed his genius to a whole world who'd never heard him before!

A wonderful jazzy soundtrack from the end of the 50s – written for the ultra-cool film Bell, Book, & Candle – which starred Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart in a comedy about beatnik witches in New York!
