One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes you wish the track went on and on and on again – but Mancini brilliantly follows that gem up with a host of wonderful other tunes – cool numbers that move past even the familiar crime jazz that Hank had given us on Peter Gunn, into a level of instrumental sophistication that set a whole new tone for the 60s generation to come. Other tunes include "Lightly Latin", "Tipsy", "One Eyed Cat", "Chime Time", and "March Of The Cue Balls", a Mancini classic if there ever was one! (Orange label pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A killer soundtrack from jazzy Johnny Keating – a set that we'd rank right up there with his other non-film work of the 60s! The score's got a bold, edgey sort of quality – one that shows a real maturation in Keating's music since the earlier part of the decade – but still that ... LP, Vinyl record album
