Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the original soundtrack to the Alfred Hitchcock film Vertigo on the rare Soundstage label.
About this copy: This copy of the original soundtrack to Vertigo is a still sealed pressing on the rare Sound/Stage label. The wrap is fully intact, with no rips or tears, and there are no punch holes, saw marks or cut corners.
A nice copy of a very rare soundtrack LP and the only sealed copy we’ve ever seen.
Background: Bernard Herrmann wrote a number of scores for Alfred Hitchcock films, and they’ve long been admired by film buffs and soundtrack collectors. The original release of the soundtrack to Vertigo was released in 1958 on Mercury Records, but by the late 1960s or early 1970s, the album was long out of print and the film itself was unavailable due to legal issues.
A small label that called itself Sound/Stage Recordings released the soundtrack to Vertigo at this time. We don’t know much about the label, as there isn’t an address on the cover and we haven’t been able to find any other records on the label.
For a short time, the material from Vertigo was once again available, though the release on the Sound/Stage label is almost certainly unauthorized. It contains the same material on the Mercury release, but there’s no indication on the cover (or label; see photo) as to whether the material is stereo or mono. As the record is still sealed, we have no way to check.
