Penthouse

LP (Item 9617) United Artists, 1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP


Johnnie Hawksworth composed, arranged, and conducted the music to this groovy Brit film which seems to feature a lot of scantily clad ladies running around in a penthouse! The music's a mix of jazzy tunes, easy numbers, and a few tracks with wildly clashing styles and sounds, and which have weird speeded up bits and things like that. The soundtrack's really compelling – almost an aural movie all the way through, and it's way more than your usual UA album from the time! Tracks include "Listen To Music", "I Deeply Regret", "Whee", "Plenty Of Provisions", and "No Tears". (Stereo pressing.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
