Plays The Theme From Love Story

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 9

A pretty wild album from Henry Mancini – one that's a lot better than the title might make it sound! The set's made up of a lot of late 60s/early 70s film themes – but Mancini's approach to them is nothing short of mad – mixing in strange arrangements, complicated rhythms, and weird touches that include harmonica, tinkling piano, and some dreamy chorus vocals! The whole thing's got a complicated approach to sound that's totally great – and which moves the music way past simple cover versions of hit film themes at the time. Titles include "Theme For Three", "Borsalino", "Loss Of Love", "Thank You Very Much", "MASH", "Love Story", and "The Harmonica Man". (Orange label pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Africana!
Strand, Late 50s. Very Good+
Traditional African sounding stuff, but we're not sure if it's legit, or played by some West Coast studio musicians. The cover's got a nice cartoony look to it, with a fearful female face peering over a jungle landscape. LP, Vinyl record album

Big Screen Little Screen
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
Henry Mancini balances things out between the big screen of the cinema and the little screen of the TV – both showcases for his famous work over the years!
