Songs From Flower Drum Song

LP (Item 929146) Kapp, 1959 — Condition: Very Good

(Mono pressing.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Warner, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great work from Earl Hagen – one of TV's better composers, as you'll hear from this tight set of tracks! The core mode of the music is crime jazz, but Hagen also adds in a lot of dramatic flourishes and contemplative passages – and the show's exotic locales (Mexico, Japan, Burma, Hong ...

Elmer Bernstein

Staccato
Capitol, 1959. Near Mint-
A great lost crime jazz soundtrack – penned by Elmer Bernstein in the style of some of his best work from the 50s! There's a real Man With The Golden Arm feel here – as the orchestra rises and falls in a mode matching the Staccato title – and solos break out with a fluid and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funny Face
Verve, 1959. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the strangest moments of success in the early years of Verve Records – and one of the label's few soundtracks too! The album's one that cleverly combines the core Verve jazz approach with some larger orchestrations by Adolph Deutsche – in a set of tunes based around the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Armando Trovajoli/I Cantori Moderni

7 Volte 7 – Original Soundtrack
Beatball (South Korea), 1968. Sealed
Wonderfully groovy stuff – and one of the best soundtracks ever by the great Italian composer Armando Trovajoli! The record has a very similar feel to his legendary Seven Golden Men soundtrack – with a groovy swinging jazz vocal group (I Cantori Moderni) over jazzy riffing and groovin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. Sealed
An early 70s score for a pirate movie – but one that's quite different than you might expect – which might be no surprise, given that the film stars the mighty team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill! As with much of their period narratives of the time, the music is nicely mis-matched ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo Rustichelli

L'Armata Brancaleone
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. Sealed Gatefold
A dramatic soundtrack for L'Armata Bracaleone – a mid 60s Italian fantasy action film that starred Vittorio Gassman in a strange setting that was sort of a twisted version of the Middle Ages! The tunes on the set are often orchestral and mood-setting – but a few of the more standout ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andrzej Korzynski

Akademia Pana Kleksa
GAD (Poland), 1983. Near Mint-
A weird and wonderful lost soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – done for a movie that was essentially a children's story, but with a great array of unusual sounds and very cool 80s keyboards! The music is very much in par with some of Korzynski's other classics – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee Bridgewater

Dee Dee Bridgewater (1976)
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Dee Dee Bridgewater's first album as a soul singer – recorded a few years after she first broke on the scene as a righteous jazz vocalist on hip early 70s classics! The sound here is different than the material Bridgewater started with, but still plenty great from a soul perspective – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of the grooviest albums ever made by this great jazz vocal group – and a record that's darn impossible to find on wax! The Hi Lo's here hit the bossa craze of the 60's, and they turn their vocal harmonies to a Brazilian groove, in sort of a roundabout recognition of the way that their ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Shearing Quintet/Dakota Staton

In The Night
Capitol, 1957. Near Mint-
Wonderful late 50s jazz from the LA scene – not just because singer Dakota Staton is at the best of her youthful prime, but also because the Shearing group on the set is great too! George is working here with one of his best lineups – a group that includes Latin-inflected Al McKibbon ... LP, Vinyl record album
