Catalog Number: HS-42550

CONDITION DETAILS
HALF-SPEED MASTER, CBS Audiophile pressing. 12-PAGE BOOK INCLUDED. Half speed info insert also included. Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested), although it doesn't affect the sound, there are two light surface scratches on side 1. Gate-fold cover looks great; light scuffing (front/back/inner-gate); a few surface impressions on front. Die-cut label. Inner sleeve is original (rice-paper backed poly). Spine is easy-to-read with very mild-wear. Minor shelf-wear along top/bottom-edge and corners. Opening is crisp with signs of light use. (Not a cut-out.)

ABOUT THE RECORD
Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the Grammy Award winning soundtrack album to the 1973 American film Jonathan Livingston Seagull, was recorded by singer-songwriter Neil Diamond and produced by Tom Catalano. The album peaked at #2 on Billboard 200 and grossed more than the film itself. It was Diamond's ninth studio album, and his first album after his successful 1972 live album Hot August Night. It won the 1974 Grammy as Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special. It has been certified 2X platinum in the U.S. and spawned two singles: Skybird and Be, both of which charted on Billboard's Hot 100. A reviewer of this album on allmusic.com says, "Neil Diamond puts himself into the shoes of a character, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, writing and singing music compelling and rich in texture and melody, to fit the portrait perfectly in a movie under the same name. Recorded in 1973 for CBS under the pop/rock style genre, Diamond had much help in order to make this into reality. Commend Tom Catalano for the musical direction and Lee Holdridge for the splendid and compelling orchestra and string arrangements. Though Diamond only sings on a few tracks, he does it so with the grace and smooth flair that brings enchantment only like he can. Romantic, fresh, and lively, this album fits the piece of the puzzle the motion picture needed so perfectly. A word of praise and thanks also goes out the hundred-plus musicians rallied to perform orchestral duties."
