Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 (180 gram pressing – with 48 page booklet)

LP (Item 873268) Sam Records/Saga, 1959 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP
Also available
Thelonious Monk — Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 (180 gram pressing) ... LP 22.99

A rare and unused soundtrack recording by Thelonious Monk – and a set of music that would be a standout in his catalog, even if it wasn't planned for a film! You probably know the Art Blakey soundtrack for the movie – which was the used and released version – and you might even know the Duke Jordan recording, too – but this batch of material is equally wonderful, and features an unusual quintet that has Monk's piano alongside the twin tenors of both Charlie Rouse and Barney Wilen – the latter of whom was such a key part of the French scene that gave the world the film in the late 50s. Other group members include Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and most numbers are reworkings of other Monk compositions, but done especially for the film – with titles that include "Six In One", "Light Blue", "Bye & Bye", "Ba Lue Bolivar Ba Lues Are", "Pannonica", "Well You Needn't", and "Rhythm-A-Ning" – all presented here in differing versions and mixes. The box is fantastic – two 180 gram LPs, along with a 48 page booklet of notes and essays – and photos from the session, and full details on the recordings!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Numbered edition – copy #67. Includes the book and a promo insert! Cover has the original sticker attached.)

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.
