Instrumental Gold Vol 1

CD (Item 976494) Olympus/Essential, 1977 — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...


The cover's a little bit cheesy, but the music inside is mighty nice – an American take on 70s sound library modes, but wrapped around a host of familiar tunes you might also know from both TV and the charts of the time! There's two major groups here – the orchestras of Ray Dugan and Billy Mann – plus one more track from Bob Hunter – and although we know very little about any of them, we can say that the whole thing has a vibe that's very much in the best 70s easy mode, like some of the mid 70s Henry Mancini albums for RCA! Titles include "Good The Bad & The Ugly", "Popcorn", "Theme From SWAT", "Rockford Files", "Walk Don't Run", "Telstar", and "Walk In The Black Forest".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
