Exciting Hong Kong

LP (Item 896568) ABC, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 7.99
An obscure TV score by Lionel Newman – with some cool arrangements by Marty Paich, Billy May, and Warren Baker – and titles that include "Tully's Bar", "Toast To Joanna", "Blues For Evans", "Jade Empress", "Chop Chop Waltz", "Chinese Cha Cha", and "Number One Girl".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with Bell Sound stamp. Cover has a cutout hole, light wear and aging, some splitting in the bottom seam, and a small name in pen in back.)

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.

One of Hugo Montenegro's greatest soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest 60s scores we can think of!

The kind of soundtrack they hardly ever make any more – one that's as full, rich, and dramatic as the film for which it was written!
