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!". (Cover has light wear, a spot of old tape on the spine with a small rip, WGN Library letters, and a promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Peyton Place
RCA, 1957. Very Good+
Although the title of the film (and book, and TV series) soon became a synonym for sex and sin, the largely orchestral score to the movie is far less sexy than you'd expect. Franz Waxman handled the scoring of the film in pretty much the same way as he'd handled a lot of his other classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bunny Lake Is Missing

Paul Glass did the score for this obscure Otto Preminger film that starrred Lawrence Olivier, Carol Lynley, and Noel Coward, and the music is mostly orchestral, with fairly complicated twists and turns, in a sort of 20th century classical way. The real treat on here, though, are the tracks written ... LP, Vinyl record album

Midnight Cowboy
United Artists, 1969. Very Good+
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films!

Lenny
United Artists, 1974. Very Good
Although the great Lenny Bruce never appeared in the Bob Fosse film based on his tragic story, Dustin Hoffman did a pretty great job of recreating his style, and of bringing together good performances of some of the most important monologues by Lenny, which are often missing from his other recorded ...

RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove! The group's a big one – filled with hip players who include Clare Fischer on organ, Artie Kane on electric piano and harpsichord, Don Menza on ... LP, Vinyl record album
