Graduate – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 74450) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 12

A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in slightly different versions, with a style that's a bit more adult and more off-center than we remember – all sitting next to some groovy instrumental tunes score by a young Dave Grusin, and shifting the mood nicely from track to track. Titles include "Whew", "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "The Singleman Party Foxtrot", "April Come She Will", "On The Strip", "The Folks", "Mrs Robinson", and "Sounds Of Silence". (360 Sound stereo Columbia Masterworks pressing.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Spy With A Cold Nose
Columbia, Late 60s. Sealed
The title alone should hip you to the fact that the score's for a spy spoof film – in this case a practically forgotten comedy starring Laurence Harvey and Lionel Jeffreys. Riz Ortolani's scoring here is pretty much in his straight soundtrack bag – with a range of styles to set the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heartbreak Kid
Columbia, 1973. Sealed
A pretty compelling soundtrack – more a document of this odd film than anything else, a melange of instrumental tracks, vocal numbers, and snippets of dialogue, done in a mode that's similar to some of the other Columbia soundtracks of the time. The instrumental tunes are pretty darn groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Lost jazzy score to this obscure 60s film – featuring nice nice work by Kenyon Hopkins, very much in the style of his other famous work from the time. Some tracks ahve a nice organy groove, others have nice spare jazz elements – and although the players aren't credited, we're sure the ... LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wrong Box
Mainstream, 1966. Sealed
One of the lesser-known John Barry scores of the 60s – penned for an equally lesser-known comedy that starred Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Peter Cook, Tony Hancock, and Dudley Moore!
