Quiller Memorandum

LP (Item 9629) Columbia, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A sweet little soundtrack by John Barry – very different than the full-on style he used for James Bond – but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The music was written for a spy thriller starring Alec Guiness, George Segal, and Max Von Sydow – a moody film that's handled here by Barry with a spacey quality that's mighty nice – lots of isolated instruments floating along, sometimes with weird effects that are almost watery – all in a space that's somewhere between Barry's work for The Knack, and that new sense of space that Morricone was bringing into 60s soundtracks. The result is a real treasure – one of Barry's best film scores – and titles include "Autobahn March", "Downtown", "Oktober/Walk From The River", "Quiller Caught/The Fight", "Quiller & The Bomb", and the theme "Wednesday's Child", sung by Matt Monro.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Strange mix of tracks for this film that has Al Pacino going undercover in New York's gay scene of the 70s. Most of the tracks are discrete songs, not instrumentals, and produced by Nitzsche.

A fantastic soundtrack from the great Francis Lai!
