Record collecting... or collecting in general...

....it's a mess......it is fun...whatever...what else?

...why do YOU collect?...

...is it for the music...or what?

 - it is for the music. Anything else is a waste of money...

 - it is for the love of the game....you will never reach the end, be confident with what you've got....

 - but never get bored and be attentive...there is always more...

 

OK, some fields of joyful record collecting....again my own taste. And something I never get bored of, even after listening to the music for quite a lot of time....

....so scroll down for

- Western film music
- Original live festival recordings
- Sampler or "Various Artists" LPs
- Some kind of excentric vinyl

 

Western Film Music (only the good ones, not the bad or ugly ones.....  ;-)
...all first versions/pressings...(otherwise noted)

Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu' - RCA Italiana PML 10414 B-side: Per Un Pugno Di Dollari - Very first edition with both outstanding soundtracks -1965

A Fistful Of Dollars -UK RCA Victor RD 7875

Music For The Man With No Name - UK RCA Victor SF-7994...same one, second press:

Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo - Italian Original from 1966 by  Eureka Parade EPL 2890(S)

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - UK United Artists SULP 1197 (stereo)

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - UK United Artists ULP 1197 (mono)

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - German United Artists UAS 69 157 I

(again) Music For The Man With No Name - German RCA Victor LSP 3927

Hang 'Em High - UK United Artists ULP 1204 (mono)

Hang 'Em High - German RCA Victor LSP 4022 (along with other film music highlights)

Two Mules For Sister Sara - UK MCA MKPS 2013 (the s.c. "Dog Bone" design)......a different (maybe called "Swirl") great label design of the very same UK LP......last but not least the blue and black "Diamond" design from the UK...to my knowledge all three versions were pressed in 1970 with stamped numbers in the run-out groove: KRS-5512.A-1W on side 1 and KRS-5512.B-1W . Why three versions?? I do not know, I think the design changed from "Swirl" to "Dog Bone" to "Diamond". Maybe MCA did it, because it is one of the greatest soundtrack of all time......finally a cool Italian version from 1971 MAPS 3264

The Mercenary - German United Artists UAS 29 005 I

C'era Una Volta Il West - Italian RCA OLS 3 (first press with only Italian titel on cover)

C'era Una Volta Il West - Italian RCA OLS 3 (second press with Italian, French and German film titel on cover)

Il Était Une Fois Dans L'Ouest - French RCA 440.751 (OLS 3). Some sources say, that this is the first issue of the original soundtrack. Maybe because it shows the year 1969. I believe, the Italian version came out first....

Django - Italian Intermezzo IMGM 002 (Yes, the LP with the English lyrics)

Django's Rückkehr - Colosseum CST 8030. Franco Nero's second appearance as the silent hero.

Django Spara Per Primo - Italian Intermezzo IM 012


More common were 7" releases at that time. I am always trying to find the originals, or first pressings, if possible...

Django - Spanish Cem Parade cem 2601 (1968)

Django - German Vogue DV 14626 (1967)

...another one from Brazil on Som Maior SMCS-131

All "Django" singles were composed by Luis Enriquez. Conducted by Bruno Nicolai. They are sung in Italian (though there are some slightly different versions or mixes on the shown singles) by Berto Fia. Rocky Roberts recorded the song in English. But I still can't find a single of that song from that time sung in English.....anyone?...... well, one source says, the song was recorded in two versions, one sung in Italian (by Roberto Fia) and the other in English (by Rocky Roberts), but only the first was released as a 45rpm at the time, while the second, along with several other tracks, was revived for the first time only in 1985 on the LP shown above...

...nevertheless....the Italian versions are great!

Trinita' - Portoguese RCA Victor 20 052 (mono) and Mocambique RCA GLS 4200 N 20052 (1972)...and Italian original Lo Chiamavano Trinita' - Pull ZL-50098 (first time 1971)by Franco Micalizzi

...Continuavano A Chiamarlo Trinitá - Portoguese RCA Victor TP-674 (mono EP, 1973)by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis

...some Various Artists Compilations of that genre are collectable as well as affordable. If you like the film music shown above, you will be served very well with these. Many Japanese pressings from that time, 'cause they were really into it at the time and the compilations are simply among the best  i.m.o. .... though not all content is from the original film scores....  and some were re-released from time to time...

Macaroni Western Themes - Japan United Artists LSS-676 UA (1968)("Navajo Joe" only instrumental version, still great EP)

Macaroni Western Themes Part 1 and 2 - Japan Seven Seas PS-15 and Seven Seas PS-16 (1967)(great and early original recordings compilations)

The West La Musica Western Nel Cinema - Italia DET Recording MDG 2005 (1968)
...(very sought after contemporary compilation of more or less known Italo Western film music)......was available as "Disco Promozionale Invendibile" (Promo Copy) as well.

Dollar Hits - German United Artists UAS 29 002 I (1969)(great old compilation from Germany, all original recordings from very well known Italo Western films)

Themes From Western Movies De Luxe - Japan Columbia JDX-63 (1972)(from the "Film Sound Orchestra" with small original sound&speech parts from the movies, interesting)...
...kind of a continuation:
The Gunman From The West - Japan Columbia JDX-88 (1973)

Django Western Themes Best 4 - Japan Seven Seas OH-22 (1972)...kind of "best of" from the above shown "Macaroni Western Themes Part 1 and 2"

Golden Themes From Western Movies - Japan Victor SCP-1337 (1968)

Golden Themes From Italian Western Movies Vol.1 - Japan RCA 5133 (1974)Golden Themes From Italian Western Movies Vol. 2 - Japan RCA 5134 (1974)

Macaroni Western Themes - Japan RCA SX-73 (1974)(part of a movie film collection series with booklet attached)

 

Regarding the Various Artists compilations there is actually a lot more variety here on CD. Most original soundtrack LPs are really difficult to find, not contemporary and often not quite interesting (apart from the ones shown above ;-) ...so here are some of the best CD compilations:

Spaghetti Western Encyclopedia Vol1 - 4 (1994, Japan, as rare promo's)...promo sticker on the OBIs instead of the barcode

Spaghetti Westerns Vol 1 and Vol 2 (1995, USA, 2CD each)Spaghetti Westerns Vol 3 (1995, USA, 1 CD) and Vol 4 (2000, USA, 2CD)

The Ecstasy Of Gold, Vol 1 - 5 (USA 2013-2014)...only the first part was released as CD and as LP, the rest only as LPs. Unfortunately I' haven't got any physical copy here. But I have heared them all through. Picture is sourced from the I-net for your interest only...
(Will be deleted, if I am asked to do so)

I you have all of these V.A. shown above, you have easily 98% of all the interesting stuff.

Another opportunity to listen to a lot of different artists on one LP is of course the

SAMPLER or Various Artists LP.

You have a lot of advantages having an eye and all ears on these LPs:

They are varied, you can discover unknown artists, vou get an idea of how  the record label is oriented, you may get an original track from an artist who is difficult to find, or from a LP expensive enough, one could not afford. Sometimes there is an oportunity to get a rare mono recording as well.

So these LPs are often affordable, some are having a nice and exclusive packing (i.e. multi-fouldout covers), and sometimes another bonus, like a sticker, a booklet, a poster or print. Some nice looking and some are very rare examples (i.m.o.):

If you are willing to sell one, please contact webmaster@mi-me.de

 

Here women were also staged as the companies did not always dare on their artist's LPs, somtimes with kind of an "artistic"  touch... "For Collectors Only..." and "Love Is Blue"

Pink Elephant

The historical background was to give people a chance to buy more than one act on a 45 for a reasonable price and to push the whole artists catalouge. You could easily have about an hour of joyful listening, well, OK, it depends.....

Of course in the late 1960's the companies were all going bananas about the progesssive and psychedelic hype, so every mixture was possible, even on colored or multicolored vinyl.

So let's have a look at some companies output. Again, it's my taste of music, that influenced the choice:

Rock, Beat, Blues(rock), Progessive-/Psychedelic(rock) and so on.....some Soundtracks with Various Artists included...so scroll to your favourite label and see what they have published, or what I could miss...

more to come.....???

 

Some kind of excentric vinyl pressings ;-)

The Label (SOFA) - misprinted, as it should mean (SOFAR) - TLR LP 002S

Vinyl is transparent, in parts reflecting and it is glowing in the dark...a beauty...

....above mentioned Virgin sampler is glowing in the dark as well...

 

True Colours from Split Enz on Mushroom L 42001 is probably the first laser-etched graphic record. Both sides have these effects, both sides are playable. Band is from NZ, LP only variation from OZ (1979).

 

One of the first modern picture LPs: Saturnalia -Magical Love - Matrix Trix1 with an so called 3-D Lenticular Art Hologram Center on both sides. A real pleasure to look at:

 

A rare version of a two sided FLEXI (or EVA-TONE Soundsheet) with a self unfolding cube as a gadget:
THE MAGIC CUBE, Cat No 106811A&BX...playable only on top of another LP...

...also used as advertising material for new publications:

 

That's one for a laugh: Monty Python's "Matching Tie And Handkerchief" (UK: CAS 1080, US: AL 4039 from 1973). A one but three-sided record set mastered with two concentric grooves on side two, so that different material would be played depending on where the needle was put down on the record's surface. Side one:Side two:

 

Another example of a three-sided LP: Johnny Winter - Second Winter from 1969 (US: KCS 9947, JW 1). It is in fact a two record set with the last side having no groove, as on this US version......while the 1969 German version (CBS 66 231) has two playable but empty tracks!

 

A single with different running speed on both sides from 1974 (and great hard psych b.t.w.):...45 rpm as usual and 33 1/3 rpm on side two...

 

Here is another strange LP: Megadeth's Sweating Bullets on Capitol, 12 CL 682 from 1992. Not only on blue vinyl, but has to be played "backwards". Cover is reading: "Paranoid pressing on blue vinyl, WARNING: Do not attempt to play this record in the conventional manner! Both sides reverse play, from the inside groove outwards." - It works, and it's funny to look at.....runout groove on the outside...

 

...and one example of a very extravagant packing of a LP:

Ten years before Alice Cooper came along with his paper panties on "School's Out" there was this hot packing around, making Alice's cover looking like an old hat......a real "G" string was added to the LP. It's from the artist Bob Freedman And Orchstra and it is called: Music To Strip By. (The name is the game). It was released around 1962/63 in the UK on Surprise Records, which had the mother label Island Records. The "typical" rough textured label on heavy vinyl and the thick flipback cardboard cover are showing the Island Records related catalouge number ILP 1001 ...

 

Always on the hunt for more....
