Bonjour Tristesse

LP (Item 9768) RCA, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

The great, bracing score to the fantastic Otto Preminger film, with music by Georges Auric, and nice dramatic saxophone passages. Juliette Greco sings the title song in a nice dramatic Frenchy fashion, and the whole thing does great justice to the steamy book by Francoise Sagan.  © 1996-2020, 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.

Henry Mancini

Party
RCA, 1968. Very Good
A great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry ...

Stephen Sondheim

Stavisky
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
A surprisingly wonderful soundtrack from Stephen Sondheim – all instrumental, which is quite a change from his more famous work for stage – but filled with loads of beautiful sounds that remind us what a fantastic composer he is! There's lots of the complex elements that we love in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Hatari
RCA, 1962. Near Mint-
Mancini's light lilting groovy score to this flop of a film by Howard Hawks! Again, the score is better remembered than the film – probably because it gave the world the great cut "Baby Elephant Walk", a goofy little number that still gets churned up a lot today. There's lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, Late 60s. Very Good-
Hugo's covering all bases here – as he makes his way through a number of late 60s Morricone spaghetti western themes, all done with his groovier than usual twist on the material! The Montenegro touches here include some augmented rhythms – snapping the tunes along with a much modder ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach

Together?
RCA, 1979. Very Good+
A lost Burt Bacharach treasure – a bit later than classic vintage, but a wonderful album from the mature maestro – and sometimes overlooked, due to its status as a soundtrack! The work here is totally great – that mellow, easy-flowing style that Burt really perfected around the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dimitri Tiomkin

Search For Paradise
RCA, 1957. Very Good
Vaguely exotic work from Dimitri Tiomkin – a rich soundtrack in the tradition of his earlier, more famous work, one that was written for this late 50s film set in the Himalayas. The music is filled with lush string passages, occasionally juxtaposed against sparer instrumental ones – in ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Duning

World Of Suzie Wong
RCA, 1960. Very Good+
A strange film, but a great soundtrack! George Duning came up with an excellent batch of jazzy tracks for the film – and most of them swing hard and tightly, with strong jazzy solos, in a manner that's similar to some of Mancini's best scores of the late 50s. A number of tracks have odd ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1966. Sealed
Groovy stuff! The album features Johnny Dankworth's fab score for Modesty Blaise – the sexy slinky British queen of international adventure, played by Monica Vitti in the 1966 film. The soundtrack's got some great jazzy numbers, a few variations on the theme, and some weird groovy tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
