Cataclysm

LP (Item 861870) Cineploit (Austria), 2016 — Condition: Sealed
(€5.64 || £4.99 || ¥742) (approx.)

Creepy, cataclysmic sounds from Oscillotron – a set that's very much in keeping with their previous attempts to revive an older style of horror film scoring – but at a level that's maybe even better than before! The music here is sublime – maybe in the best territory of soundtrack work by Tangerine Dream or Popol Vuh, with all the spooky tones that might imply – as keyboards move in stark blocks of sound over dark rhythms that are often plodding, but with this forward intensity that makes the music feel as if the whole thing's drawing to some ultra-horrific conclusion! Titles include "Mirage", "Pioneers", "Twilight", "Spiral", "Terminal", and "Cataclysm".  © 1996-2018, 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.

Cineploit (Austria), 2012. Sealed
Weird and spooky sounds from Oscillotron – a one-man outfit, but working here in sharply cinematic splendor! The music here takes plenty of cues from the late 70s/early 80s horror generation – with some wonderfully dark keyboard lines that resonate strongly throughout the entire set ...

Grand Prix
MGM, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
Quite an important soundtrack – penned for a mid 60s French/American production directed by John Frankenheimer and starring James Garner, Yves Montand, Toshiro Mifume, and Francoise Hardy! The film's an auto racing one – in case you couldn't guess from the title – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Graduate – Original Soundtrack
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Ragazzina
Contempo (Italy), 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)
A sweet little score from Italian composer Nico Fidenco – best known round these parts for his sultry work for some of the 70s Emmanuelle films, sounding equally groovy on this more obscure album from the time! There's a light groove throughout the album – sometimes a slinky Euro sex ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music From Mr Lucky
RCA, 1959. Very Good
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes ... 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

Guns For San Sebastian
MGM, 1968. Near Mint-
Bold, brash scoring from Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack that's a bit more dramatic than some of his better-known westerns from the time, done here with full orchestrations and a mix of haunting themes! The story is set in 18th century Mexico – and Morricone's music has some slight ... LP, Vinyl record album
TVT, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. Near Mint-
Shorter than the usual TV Tunes 2 LP sets, and with only 50 tracks – but, oh, what tracks they are! Loads and loads of cool old TV commercials, back from the old days – when nobody cared how goofy they sounded, and when they spent way too much money on studio hacks churning out cool ...

Joy
RCA, 1970. Sealed
Oscar Brown's score for a hip play that he wrote (one of his many plays!) – performed by him, Sivuca, and Jean Pace. Despite the "show" quality of the material, this actually stands simply as a great Oscar Brown Jr. LP, and the production is nice and intimate, and sounds just like ... LP, Vinyl record album
