Courts Metrages (180 gram pressing)

LP (Item 909516) Weme/Vadim (France), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP (reissue)

Groovy soundtrack numbers from the 60s and early 70s by Francious De Roubaix – moody, tense bits of strings and keys, loping melodies and instrumentation all around that floats from eerily disquieting, to psyche steeped strangeness, to straight up beautiful! Folk funky vibes to organ jazz in the most conventional moments, but the vibe changes pretty quickly within the pieces to more adventurous realms. The numbers come from recordings he made for short films over a decade long period – rare material from his archives on 2LP set! Includes "Les Foudres De L'Ocean", "Y 33", "Santo Pietro", "Centrales Thermiques", "Les Etrangers", "La 231 D 735", "Rendez-Vous A L'Aube" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Mundell Lowe

Billy Jack
Warner, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
If there was anything weirder than the Billy Jack series of films in the 70s, it was the soundtracks! The records feature overall scoring by Mundell Lowe, with jazzy instrumentals that are trying to have a serious "southwest" sound to them – plus lots of vocal tracks with a similar ...

Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A fairly straight orchestral score by John Barry – written for this early 60s film that starred George Segal, Tom Courneay, and Denholm Elliott. The film's a war one, and the themes are pretty typical for that sort of thing – but they do have some nice instrumental touches that push ... LP, Vinyl record album
Amos/Bell, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
The cover to this one advertises the more famous names that do tracks for the album – like Mountain, Delaney & Bonnie, and others – but the best tracks here are those by the great arranger Jimmy Bowen, who turns out some excellent complicated funky numbers that have a bit of a hippy ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Barry

Last Valley
ABC, 1971. Near Mint-
Quite a shift for John Barry – not the usual groovy music you might expect, and instead a somewhat serious score written for this historical epic written and directed by James Clavell, starring Omar Sharif and Michael Caine! The sound is still wonderful, though – proof that Barry was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones/Jose Feliciano

Mackenna's Gold
RCA, 1969. Sealed
A western soundtrack – but one that's groovier than you might expect, given that the music was done by Quincy and Jose! The general style is strings and western themes, but Quincy manages to put a bit of bounce at the bottom – using an electric bass in a syncopated style that's quite ... LP, Vinyl record album

Klaus Schulze

Body Love
Island, 1977. Near Mint-
Spacey electronic score to this bizarre German orgy film from the late 70s! Klaus is in a sparer mode than some of the mid 70s Tangerine Dream recordings – but the music is quite compelling, and the record only contains three long tracks – "Stardancer", "Blanche", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Hamlisch/Carly Simon

Spy Who Loved Me
United Artists, 1977. Near Mint-
Carly Simon makes a big appearance here – singing the hit title track "Nobody Does It Better" – one of the highest-charting Bond film tunes of the 70s! But our favorites are the instrumental songs – handled by Marvin Hamlisch here with a sound that's perhaps a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lovin Spoonful

You're A Big Boy Now
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint-
The soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola's first film, and a surprisingly groovy batch of tracks! John Sebastian composed the whole score, and unlike most of the other albums by The Lovin Spoonful, this one's got a lot of instrumental numbers, arranged by the great Artie Schroek – short little ...

Stax, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A musical – but a pretty darn soulful one, as you might expect from the mighty Melvin Van Peebles!
