A beautiful copy of a rare audiophile favorite and the nicest unopened copy we’ve ever seen.

Background:  The Professionals, released in 1966, was a critically acclaimed western staring Lee Marvin, Ralph Bellamy, Jack Palance, Robert Ryan, Burt Lancaster and Claudia Cardinale.  It did well at the box office and received three Academy Award nominations.

The real treat of the film was the soundtrack, with a score by Maurice Jarre.  The soundtrack album to this film has long been highly regarded by audiophiles, though it tends to be overshadowed by another release on the same label, Casino Royale.  We prefer this one, and regard it as one of the best-sounding albums we’ve ever heard.  It almost has the effect of making your room seem larger as you listen to it.

Unlike Casino Royale’s soundtrack, the soundtrack to The Professionals has never, to our knowledge, been reissued.  It also sold poorly when originally released and is quite hard to find today.
