(London MS-82009 USA 1967 VG+ 400:-)

A fantastic soundtrack for an incredibly groovy film – a landmark British comedy that received some sublime musical treatment from Dudley Moore – who was one of the stars of the movie! Moore's a surprisingly great jazz pianist, and provides a rich blend of jazz instrumentals, groovy larger cuts, and a few wild vocal tracks with a mad mad sound! The album's well-remembered for the fuzzy-breakbeat classic "Bedazzled" and Peter Cook's vocal on the mad rocker "Love Me" – and other tracks are a perfect blend of styles that recall the best of Henry Mancini or Neal Hefti from the same time – the best 60s blend of jazz, mod, and loungey styles.

This is the STEREO issue of the original soundtrack vinyl; both sleeve and vinyl are in Excellent condition!

Italian Job, The
(Paramount SPFL-256 UK-69 EX 800:-)

The great soundtrack from Quincy Jones to the cult UK heist movie The Italian Job starring Michael "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" Caine, Noel Coward and Benny Hill (Big! Big!).

Quincy Jones has composed a variety of styles to accompany the on-screen action, but the tune we all know and love is the anthemic "Getta Bloomin' Move On!" (The Self Preservation Society) and its accompanying instrumental theme that plays whilst those cute, cool little Mini Coopers race about Turin.
King Rat
(Mainstream S-6061 US-65 coh EX 400:-)

"King Rat" is a landmark John Barry score and one of his rare excursion into the Second World War. The strong themes and glorious arrangements are typical of the composer's work, while the music is not as strongly recognisable as a Barry masterpiece (which it undoubtedly is) as other scores of the period. After almost forty years "King Rat" is still a fresh interesting and entertaining score.
Monte Carlo or Bust!
(Paramount SPFL-255 UK-69 EX 375:-)

Ron Goodwin worked on more than 60 scores. His first was for documentaries, and his first feature was Whirlpool in 1958, followed television and on the film The Day of the Triffids in 1962. His war films are particularly well remembered. These include Where Eagles Dare (1968), Battle of Britain (1969), for which he replaced William Walton, 633 Squadron and Operation Crossbow. On Monte Carlo or Bust! (1969) the main theme is sung by Jimmy Durante!
Robin and the 7 Hoods
(Reprise F-2021 US-64 EX 350:-)

Robin and the 7 Hoods is one of the more obscure releases from Reprise Records to be associated with Frank Sinatra and a major project, in this case a movie from the tail-end of the Rat Pack era. It is true that the recordings, like the production of the movie, bridged a difficult time in the lives of everyone — the Rat Pack itself was starting to fall apart; and Reprise Records, Sinatra's new business venture, with which he started the decade, was pretty much hemorrhaging money, except for his own recordings; and in the midst of the movie's production came the assassination of President Kennedy. So in retrospect, if everyone involved was a little off their game, it was understandable.
(Viking VIF-5002 Swe-72 VG+ 1000:-)

Lee Hazelwood is a strange guy. A producer in the '50s and a singer-songwriter in the '60s and '70s, he has fashioned an utterly unique composite by combining cowboy themes, rockabilly, ballads, and richly orchestrated pop with his clever, honest, and sometimes oblique lyrics.

In 1970, Hazelwood traveled to Sweden to collaborate with director Tobjorn Axelman. For one of these ventures, Hazelwood wrote the music for and starred in "Smoke", which deals with a group of Americans who live together in an old mansion somewhere in Sweden spend their time between working at the local airplane plant and hanging out with their revolutionary friends.

Original Swedish pressing. The sleeve shows general wear; the vinyl has an inaudible mark on the last tracks of Side 1.
Solomon and Sheba
(United Artists UAL-4051 US-59 EX 350:-)

Epic Biblical saga starring Yul Brynner (replacing Tyrone Power, who died early in the filming) as Solomon, the Israelite king who falls in love with the sensuous queen of Sheba (Gina Lollobrigida), much to the dismay of his brother Adonijah (George Sanders) and at the risk of harming his people. Music composed and conducted by Mario Nascimbene - original Mono issue in the rare silk-screen sleeve!
Some like it Hot
(United Artists UAL-4030 US-59 EX 300:-)

This classic 1959 comedy about two musicians (Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis) disguised as women on the run from the mob has become one of the world's best loved Hollywood comedies. Marilyn Monroe sings three songs on the swinging soundtrack, including the ever-popular favorite "I Wanna Be Loved By You".

Original US MONO pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
WB: 50 Years of Film
(Warner 3XX-2737 US-73 275:-)

The three LPs in 50 YEARS OF FILM MUSIC are housed in a durable slimline case with a front cover that has a slightly-erotic Art Deco-inspired foil silhouette. Each album is in a heavy stock paper sleeve with contents on one side that include bios and trivia for every selection. Audio is dubbed from original nitrate and magnetic masters held in the Warner Bros. archives. Original vocals and dialogue are included.

The text of a profusely illustrated 24-page 12" × 12" book concerns a typical day in 1938 at Warner's recording studio, where Erich Korngold is rehearsing music for THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD. His composing technique is compared to Max Steiner's. There's also information on Dimitri Tiomkin, Franz Waxman, Ray Heindorf and other musical luminaries contracted to the studio.
