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.

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

Ennio Morricone

Fistful Of Dollars
RCA, 1967. Very Good
A landmark record – not only in the history of the western, but in that of Ennio Morricone! The soundtrack, written for this hit Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, is everything you'd want in a 60s western – driving orchestral passages, twanging guitar parts, and spooky little bits that ...

Dramma Della Gelosia
RCA (Italy), 1970. Very Good+
A beautiful score to this lesser-known Marcello Mastroianni film from 1970 – sublime sounds from the great Armando Trovajoli – done in a beautiful mix of electric keyboards, wordless vocals, and dreamy orchestrations! The set's got this warmly stepping groove that's really tremendous ... LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful Nino Rota score – perhaps not as well known as some of his work for Fellini, but every bit as great, if not better! The themes are light and tight – with that jaunty Rota approach to scoring that stays with you for days after you leave the theatre. Instrumentation includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

A dark little soundtrack to this mid 50s film that starred Sal Mineo as a scrawny JD (what else!) The tracks are mostly orchestral, but have a bit of Elmer Bernstein or Leith Stevens type jazz in them – blaring out from time to time amidst the strings to set the dangerous mood of the film. ...
