2001 – A Space Odyssey

LP (Item 9670) MGM, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+
The mostly orchestral music used for the Kubrick film, with alternating spooky and grand passages Strauss, Ligetti and others. Inlcudes "Also Sprach Zarathustra", "Requiem For Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Mixed Choirs & Orchestra", "Luz Aeterna", "The Blue Danube" and "Atmospheres".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue and gold label stereo pressing with deep groove. NOTE – Cover is lightly stained and wavy at the bottom half, with a large peeled patch inside the gatefold.)

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.

Dave Grusin/Teddy Randazzo

Girl From UNCLE
MGM, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the greatest spy soundtracks of the 60s – a very groovy batch of tracks written for Stefanie Powers' brief TV show, The Girl From UNCLE! The music here is better than the male version of the UNCLE franchise – hip 60s spy themes, done in a groovy style for the television audience ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nelson Riddle/Ferrante & Teicher

Rage To Live
United Artists, 1965. Very Good+
Mostly dramatic material, written by Riddle to accompany this mid 60s film based on the John O'Hara novel of the same name. Ferrante & Teicher perform the main theme – which is jaunty enough – but the other tracks are pretty dark and orchestral, with a fairly gloomy feel overall. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chad & Jeremy

Three In The Attic
Sidewalk, Late 60s. Very Good
Groovy stuff from Chad & Jeremy – a rare soundtrack, but one of their best albums from the 60s! The album's got loads of jangle-happy tunes done in a 60s mode that recalls the best of the post-Brit Invasion years – guitars upfront, dreamy vocals, and more complicated orchestrations ...
