Vivere A Tokio – Citta Del Paradiso

LP (Item 922870) RCA (Italy), 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

Tokyo, the city of paradise – portrayed here in a wonderful early 70s soundtrack from Italian composer Giovanni Tommaso – who really bridges the globe with his music! The style is definitely Italian – especially the soundtrack style of the time – but there's also some more fluid, open moments too – longer songs than usual for the genre, which lead to some cool instrumental moments on keyboards and woodwinds, in a way that almost reminds us more of the grooviest Australian film scores of the time! If you close your eyes, you might almost think of the record as one coming from Sven Libaek instead – especially his great mix of warmth and action at the same time – and titles include "Rituale No 2", "Sopraelevata No 1", "Yamanka Lake", "Vivere A Tokio", and "Green Kimono".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent reissue on Sonor/GDM.)

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.

An amazing little soundtrack that's almost better than the show for which it was written!

A weird batch of folksy rock tunes – composed and produced by Harley Hatcher for Sidewalk Enterprises, and sounding a lot more like a Sidewalk or Tower soundtrack than something on RCA.

A spy film – and with a mix of jazz and orchestral themes that's similar to some of Henry Mancini's work from the same time. The main theme is nice and jazzy, with some good guitar, and a great crime theme sound. Two other nice tracks are "The Pussy Willow Club" and "Pussy ... LP, Vinyl record album

The great, bracing score to the fantastic Otto Preminger film, with music by Georges Auric, and nice dramatic saxophone passages.
