What Did You Do In The War Daddy?

LP (Item 60224) RCA, 1966 — Condition: Used

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 12

Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not a jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory of the film situates it in Italy, so a fair number of the melodies have slight Italian overtones – including "Sicily Forever", "Gina", "Wine and Women", and "Festa!".
