Notes

Composers not named on the cover, but importance of these credits to their careers justifies elevation to "Primary Artist" status.

Notes on gatefold interior begin with banner "Musique sans image" (left) & "Audio without visual" (right)

English description from back cover:

"This album offers an unusual opportunity to discover the "sound dimensions" of the National Film Board of Canada. This is not, however, a matter of "film music" or "theme songs". The sound tracks to be found here, detached from their visuals, taken in their totality, assume the character of parallel, autonomous works.

We wished to draw attention to the fact that the NFB has produced sound tracks in which a true spirit of research has been able to express itself with great freedom.

This album shows that Norman McLaren is not only an animation artist of repute, but that he is also an imaginative musician and inventor of sound put directly on film, using animation techniques, either manually or by photography.

We wished also to pay homage to NFB composers - authentic film-makers - craftsmen essential to the achievement of a film.

Thus we find those "musician film-makers" of the Board - Maurice Blackburn, Eldon Rathburn and Alain Clavier - as well as some others who have been interested in the relation of sound to image.

Produced by the Sound Concept Studio of the National Film Board of Canada, these discs cover the period 1952-1971, the period preceding the establishment of the studio in 1971 when electro-acoustic technology was made available to the Board's composers."

How we grade

All items are visually inspected under strong lighting. We try to grade conservatively. On some items you may see us mention "EX", or "Excellent". We use this for items which are almost (but not quite) NM, but are definitely better than VG+. We do not use the Mint grade, except for Sealed items (we have to use Mint as there is no "Sealed" grading option available on Discogs). We don't use Mint for sleeves, even if they are perfect. If your sealed vinyl has issues when opened, please contact us before leaving feedback. We will be happy to work out a solution, but remember we have no physical way of checking the condition of sealed vinyl.

The shrinkwrap on sealed items (plus generic CD / Cassette plastic cases) are not taken into account with our grading.

Due to the quantity of items that we list, we do not usually playtest. A short playtest may be requested for high value items. Please note that we cannot provide soundclips of vinyl.

Returns & refunds

If you are unhappy in any way with your item, you can ship it back to us for a refund. All we ask is that you ship it back to us as you received it. Refunds will be granted upon receipt of the returned item, and will entail the sale value of the item. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs.
