Fantasticks

LP (Item 973557) MGM, 1963 — Condition: Sealed

(Mono pressing.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Riz Ortolani

Yellow Rolls Royce
MGM, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Although Riz certainly did some groovy work during the late 60s in Italy, this score's pretty straight stuff – mostly period tunes with a lush rich feel. The album does include the original version of "Forget Domani", which became a vocal hit for Sinatra. Other tunes include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alex North

Africa
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A pretty serious orchestral score by Alex North, designed to accompany an ABC documentary about the changes in Africa during the 60s. Given that the documentary takes a look at the emerging politics and cultures in post-colonial Africa, it's amazing how white and western the soundtrack is – ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A dramatic score for this all-star, big-budget film about international intrigue – with a setting that runs from Red China to the Vatican, and a set of stars that includes Anthony Quinn, Oskar Werner, David Janssen, and Laurence Olivier. The tracks are all fairly straight orchestral ones, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Grusin/Teddy Randazzo

Girl From UNCLE
MGM, 1966. Sealed 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

United Artists, 1967. Very Good+
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best! The groove here is really unique – a spare blend of bossa influences, jazzy organ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riz Ortolani & Nino Oliviero

Mondo Cane
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of the first big international soundtracks to come from the Italian scene in the 60s – the start of a great run that would continue through the decade, although maybe not with results as strongly as this! The score is for a strange documentary-like film (the title means "World Gone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spy Who Loved Me
United Artists, 1977. Near Mint-
Carly Simon makes a big appearance here – singing the hit title track "Nobody Does It Better" – one of the highest-charting Bond film tunes of the 70s! But our favorites are the instrumental songs – handled by Marvin Hamlisch here with a sound that's perhaps a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Mandel/Ahmad Jamal

MASH
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint-
A very unusual little soundtrack – almost more of an audio documentary of the film than a record itself! Although Johnny Mandel's score for the movie was plenty darn great, there's very little of it here – because about 80% of the record features jokes and dialogue from the film by ...
