Growing Pains – Theme From Growing Pains & Other TV Hits

LP (Item 934174) Reprise, 1988 — Condition: Near Mint-

...

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.

Nelson Riddle

Paris When It Sizzles
Reprise, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Audrey Hepburn's back in Paris again – fooling around with another older man! This time it's William Holden, but fortunately Nelson Riddle's along for the ride to keep the music nice and groovy. Most of the stuff on here's kind of Frenchy instrumental, with the cliched kind of sound you'd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Mandel

Americanization Of Emily
Reprise, 1964. Near Mint-
One of those soundtracks that outlived the life of the film – or at least the theme did! "Emily" is one of the best ballads to be penned in the 60s – a dreamy number offered up here in a number of different ways by Johnny Mandel – with strings, reeds, and in larger ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, Mid 60s. Sealed
Dean sings tunes from one of the best of the Matt Helm films – The Silencers! The music's got Dean very much in the best of his Reprise country-styled singing – with production by Jimmy Bowen that makes strong use of electric bass on the bottom, and arrangements from Ernie Freeman and ...

John Barry

Petulia
Warner, 1968. Near Mint-
A pretty compelling John Barry score – written for this strange semi-comedy which starred George C Scott and Julie Christie, and which was directed by Richard Lester. The music is a mixture of groovy themes and slower numbers that still have a modulated groovy approach – strings ... LP, Vinyl record album

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave Grusin

Graduate – Original Soundtrack
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Addison

Smashing Time
ABC, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Mod 60s all the way – as the film stars Michael York, Rita Tushingham, and Lynn Redgrave! The score is by John Addison, and actually more than half of the numbers are vocal ones – featuring the girls singing in series of whimsical tunes that are sort of a 60s take on the Merry Old ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenyon Hopkins

Baby Doll
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
Kenyon Hopkins at his finest – informed by jazz, but scored with a bit more seriousness overall – in that late 50s style that oozes social consciousness from the very first note! The score's a lot more put together, and somewhat more restrained than the film – almost a jazz score ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of Morricone's most famous scores – and certainly the one that got him recognized worldwide as a genius! The whole thing's pretty damn eerie – about as eerie as the movie, which is a real stunner – and it shifts from dark orchestral themes to sparer numbers that use guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Legrand/Charles Boyer

Love Is A Ball
Philips, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Ah, so French! Quite different than most of Michel Legrand's usual work – this one is much more of a tongue in cheek effort, featuring tunes that have a jaunty French-like sound – sort of served up for the American audience – with narration by Charles Boyer, in a Maurice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philip Springer/Pacific Gas & Electric/Pete Seeger

Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon
Columbia, 1969. Sealed
A real mix of moods and styles here. Pete Seeger starts out the soundtrack singing "Old Devil Time", and PG&E perform 2 funkier numbers – "Elvira" and "The Rake/Work Your Show", which both have a bluesy rock sort of approach. The best tunes, though, are the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stu Phillips

Battlestar Galactica
MCA, 1978. Near Mint-
Stu really surprised us all with this one – working in full orchestral mode on a great set of dramatic themes that almost beats John Williams at his game! The work was scored for the great 70s TV sci fi flick Battlestar Galactica – and overall, most of the tunes are orchestral ones, ... LP, Vinyl record album
